WI vs SL: Windies official page makes an error while tweeting


West Indies’ Kieron Pollard became the first West Indian to hit six sixes in an international match. He smashed six over boundaries in the sixth over of the first T20I against Sri Lanka.

But the West Indies’ Twitter handle made a huge mistake while uploading the statistics. South African legend Herschelle Gibbs was the first cricketer to achieve the record n international cricket in 2007. In their World Cup match against Netherlands, Gibbs made this historic record. In the same year, in the inaugural Y20 World Cup, India’s Yuvraj Singh smashed England’s Stuart Broad for six sixes. After over a decade Pollard joined the elite panel today.

But in their post, WI stated Gibbs achieved the record in 2017. Though shortly after they apologised for their mistake and stated the corrected year.
