Gayle hammered 80 off 48 - with a paltry 2 fours and extensive number of sixes, 10 in total. Hazratullah, Yuvraj and West Indies' superstar Chris Gayle too has managed a half-century in only 12 balls.

Yuvraj had hit six sixes off a Stuart Broad over to move to a 12-ball half-century in the inaugural T20I World Cup in 2007.

Abdullah Mazari was the bowler who bore the brunt of Hazratullah's fury.

Afghan 20-year-old Hazratullah Zazai joined a select group of cricketers on Sunday by smashing six sixes in an over in a domestic tournament. He termed it to be some serious hitting and said it was great to watch Hazratullah Zazai.

He is the second man after Yuvraj to do it in a T20 game.

May 'to consider' extending UK's post-Brexit transition period
Britain says it has not asked for an extension, but May has not yet come up with proposals for unblocking the border logjam. European Union leaders dismissed May's most recent proposal as unworkable.

Zazai became the sixth player, and only the third in Twenty20s, to hit six sixes in an over.

Kabul raced to 70 for no loss in 4 overs thanks to Zazai's jaw-dropping display of cricket and the Afghanistan global completed his fifty in twelve balls, equalling the record for the fastest half-century in T20 cricket shared by Chris Gayle himself and India's Yuvraj Singh.

"It was a surreal moment for me to perform in front of my idol", said Zazai, "I was trying to play my natural game and wasn't thinking of outshining anybody".

Zwanan, who were chasing a mammoth target of 245, fell short by 21 runs.

He smacked six sixes in the fourth over from the bowling of Abdullah Mazari in the fourth over of the Kabul Zwanans' innings against the Balkh Legends. In their 20 overs, Kabul Zwanan completed scoring 223 runs for the loss of 7 wickets. Kabul's opener, Hazratullah Zazai, put in a memorable display against his opponents after the talented batsman smashed six sixes off a single over in the game today.
