All time biggest sixes in cricket history is a niche that is not changing too quickly. Some records are made to be broken after a long time. Afridi has hit 158 meters long six and it has not yet been broken even by some of the giants in cricket history.
Jack Kallis is definitely a shining light for the Libra Legends. He was actually the part of BBL victorious team Sydney Thunders.The south African legend Kallis enjoys cricket in this part of the world. He started the innings with Lumb. They needed a huge total of 235.
Very best cricket was needed from them. Kallis started playing his signature shots to get the mammoth total. He got away with some boundaries early with the middle of the bat.
The first big blow was the wicket of Jack Kallis when Libra were 15/1. He was gone for 14 by hitting 3 boundaries.The second wicket falls on the score of 29. Saqlain Mushtaq was bowling,he was hit by two boundaries in the very first over.But the run out got him some relief.
Marcus North walks in. The batsman run out was Taufeeq Umar. Real problems started for Legends when Lumb was out after hitting a six.It was 37/3
Marcus North was also stomp out from behind. It was 43/4 for the Legends.Something extraordinary needed to be done.Runs on the board were less than the run rate required. The commentators Aamir Sohail and Dany Morrison predicted it is going to be a tough ask from now on.
The run rate continued to climb almost 14. The great off spinner Murlidharan made it sure that the Legends do not make it close to the total.The 5th wicket fell when Murlidharan bold the Sean Ervine who just started to open up.That was surely the end for Libra Legends.

Murli was in ripping mood. Sangakara played a brilliant innings before that made this huge total possible. No one in the Libra Legends even came close to his likes.Only singles were coming when they needed far more runs. Ambrose came out with some boundaries, showed some resistance.
There was no one left down the order. Doeschate made a 50 but and remained busy taking runs till the end. But nothing could get him close to that mammoth total. Libra lost the match by a good margin.That was a one sided first match we can say.
