There are only 3 instances of a batsmen hitting 4 consecutive sixes in a test innings.
- Kapil 1990 Vs Eng Lords
- Shahid Afridi 2006 Vs India Lahore
- ABD 2009 Vs Aus Capetown
The feat of Kapil is more significant as Ind was trying to avoid follow on with last wicket in hand, Still needing 24 to avoid follow on. Kapil took matters in his own hands and settled the trifle matter in 4 balls. A task someone would be very brave to take on let alone succeed.
Other two instances were when the batting side was in strong position with huge lead and in search of some quick runs before declaration. No pressure situation with nothing to loose.
