The ongoing edition of the Big Bash League is generating some serious buzz. The sixes are getting mightier and the entertainment is getting intense. Recently, Jonathan Wells of the Adelaide Strikers lit up the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) with a humongous six. The shot was absolutely breathtaking and kept sailing and sailing over. It ended up on the roof of the iconic venue.

The action perspired in the final over of the Adelaide Strikers innings. Ben Dwarshuis was the bowler for the Sydney Sixers. On the fifth ball of the over, he bowled to Jonathan Wells. He bowled a length delivery as Wells was quick to shuffle across his crease. He made the right adjustments to get underneath the ball to get the ideal space required to make the correct connection of leather and willow.

Wells made a fine connection with his willow to clobber the ball over the deep square leg fence. The replays showed the intensity with which the ball was hit. It was a humongous hit and the commentators could not believe their eyes either. The replays suggested that the monstrous hit was almost 104 metre long!

Dwarshuis ended up conceding 17 runs in the final over of the innings as Adelaide Strikes got the ideal finish after a sluggish start. Jonathan Wells remained unbeaten on 33 that came off just 19 deliveries. He hit 3 towering sixes and a boundary during his stay at the crease. His final flourish saw the Strikers finish with 167/3 in their stipulated 20 overs.

Earlier in the innings, the Strikers were dented early by the dismissal of their opener Jake Weatherald for a duck. However, the other opener, Alex Carey, held the fort for them with an unbeaten 83 off 59 balls to play the anchor knock.
