This is quite a bold looking fact that Rahul Dravid hit Hat-Trick of Sixes in a match. Arguably one of the most respected and iconic cricketers to have ever played the gentleman’s game, Rahul Dravid will always be remembered for his calm and composed demeanor and tireless batting. Boasting of classic textbook shots, Dravid remained a vital cog in the Team India set-up until his retirement in 2012.

Showcasing great temperament and application at the crease, Dravid primarily relied on his ability to wear the opposition bowlers down as he held fort for his team at one end. His ability to tirelessly bat for countless hours often aided India in dire situations. Such was his batting abilities in Tests that Dravid, as a batsmen, never really got his due in limited-overs cricket. And, that’s probably why many still won’t believe he hit three consecutive sixes in the shortest format.

In his lone T20I appearance for India in 2011, Dravid, in the twilight of his career, shut the naysayers who often criticised him for his low scoring rate by clubbing poor Samit Patel for three consecutive sixes in the 11th over of Team India’s innings against England at Manchester. While England went on to win the contest by six wickets, Dravid won accolades for his hat-trick of sixes – something many thought wasn’t possible.


Slogover, where Cricket meets memories. This Slogover website is an institution that celebrates and commemorates the heartbeat of the nation “Our Cricket”. It is committed to guide, encourage and inspire the future of Indian cricket.

We commissioned a very innovative “#Slogover #DidYouKnowCard” on this website. Here we present the important and interesting information about cricket in a very informative and sharable way.

Apart from the health benefits, cricket can teach many values to your child including how hard work and dedication can pay rich dividends.

Each game of cricket has a vital lesson to learn. From Sachin Tendulkar single-handedly carrying India, even as ‘Desert Strom’ raged on, into the finals of the 1998 Coca-Cola cup to the defining images of Brian Lara becoming the first man to score 400 runs in a single test, the game teaches how hard work and a lot of effort will eventually pay off. 

So enjoy the journey of Cricket Memories and share the #Slogover #DidYouKnowCards with your friends.
