The Maharashtra opener finished his fiery knock unbeaten on 220 off 159 balls. His solid innings, which was studded with 10 fours and 16 sixes, helped his side set up a competitive total of 330/5 in 50 overs.
The record for the most number of sixes in an over in all forms of cricket is held by a former Blackcaps wicket-keeper batter, Lee Germon, who struck eight sixes in an over which included 17 no-balls and cost 77 runs, in a first-class game during the 1989–90 season.
Gaikwad's 43-run over also became the joint-most expensive over in the history of List A cricket, previously achieved by Northern Districts's Brett Hampton and Joe Carter in New Zealand's domestic 50-over game in 2018
Only four players have achieved the feat of hitting six sixes in an over in international cricket – South Africa's Herschelle Gibbs, India's Yuvraj Singh, West Indies' Kieron Pollard and USA's Jaskaran Malhotra.
