England cricketer Will Jacks went berserk in a T10 game against Lancashire. During a pre-season match in Dubai, he went all guns blazing at the opposition. His innings included six sixes in an over and massive strikes all over the ground. It was complete madness as he smashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground with ease and grace.
Watching his knock seemed to be like playing one of those cricket games where you’d smash every ball for a six. Will Jacks took only 25 balls to get to his century which is mindblowing. The 20-year-old was on 62 before he smashed six sixes in an over. Thus, he stormed to 98 within a matter of one over. He had an opportunity to get to a century in just 23 balls.
A century within the first six overs of the game
But the nervous nineties slightly got the better of him. Jacks played two dot balls before he reached the triple figures with a well-timed cover drive. Stephen Parry of Lancashire was the bowler who was at the receiving end when Will Jacks smashed every ball of the over for a six. The batsman got to his century within six overs of the game and his partner at the other end was just a mere spectator.
Jacks slowed down slightly after reaching the milestone. He ultimately got out for 105 runs which came off just 30 balls. He failed in an attempt to clear the long-on boundary but his efforts helped Surrey finished with a gigantic score of 176/3 in 10 overs.
In the chase, Lancashire got off to a flying start scoring 48 off the first three overs. But they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. The side was bowled out for just 81 runs losing the game by 95 runs.
Here is the video of Will Jacks smashing the bowlers all around the park:
