Australian Club Cricketer's Record of 6 Wickets in 6 Balls

The Australian club cricketer scored an incredible 6-ball 6-wickets dismiss in the last over of the Gold Coast Premier League one-day cricket match, which was described as incredible.

According to the report of the news agency ‘AFP’, in the Gold Coast Premier League Division 3 match, Gareth Morgan, the captain of Midgiraba, came to bowl the last over in the match against Surfers Paradise, and the chances of his team winning were very low because the opposing team needed 5 runs from an over and had 6 wickets to spare.

Gareth Morgan dismissed Surfers Paradise opener Jake Garland for 65 off the first ball of the last over of the innings and then took the wickets of all five newcomers in 5 balls.

Morgan told the Gold Coast Bulletin that the umpires were telling me at the start of the over that it was a joke to take a hat-trick or win the match.

Gareth Morgan has attracted national attention and is the talk of the world after his disastrous bowling.

The umpires were staring at me the entire time, and it was just unbelievable, he said to Australia’s national broadcaster ABC.

He said, “I thought we should win this match now that we have a hat-trick.” According to Gareth Morgan, I had never seen anything like it before, so when the wickets were up on the final ball, I couldn’t believe it.

During the record bowling, Gareth Morgan took the first 4 wickets and bowled the remaining two batsmen. At the other end, the batsmen who remained not out were left looking at the batsmen who were dismissed for 6 runs.

According to ABC, New Zealand’s Neil Wagner, Bangladesh’s Alamin Hussain and India’s Abhimanyu Mithan held the record for taking the most 5 wickets in an over in professional cricket.
