Kusal Mendis has created a furore in Test cricket. This batter from Sri Lanka hit more than 10 sixes in 1 Test innings.

Mendis has now jointly become the second batter to hit the maximum number of sixes in an innings of Test.

Mendis did this feat in the second Test of Galle while playing for Sri Lanka against Ireland.

Mendis hit 251 runs in 291 balls in his innings, including 18 fours and 11 sixes.

The rest of the batters in this list who have hit 11 sixes include Nathan Astle, Matthew Hayden, Brendon McCullum and Ben Stokes.

Wasim Akram is on first position in this list. He hit a total of 12 sixes against Zimbabwe in a Test innings in 1996.

Mendis also scored the first double century of his career in this Test.

It is the third time in Test history that the top 4 batters of a team have achieved such a feat. Before this, India and Pakistan did this amazing thing.
