Luke Robinson, a 13-year old from London, bowled out six batsmen in six consecutive deliveries of his over creating history of sorts while playing for Philadelphia Cricket Under-13s. Robinson's family was elated at what the boy had achieved and took their time to absorb what had happened.
A 13-year old London schoolboy created a history of sorts by dismissing six batsmen in six consecutive deliveries of his over. Moreover, what made the spectacular event even more special was the fact that he scalped all the wickets by bowling the batsmen out cleanly. The exceptional performance helped Philadelphia Cricket Under-13s, which is based near Houghton-le-Spring in north-east England, win their match.
Luke's mother Helena Robinson was the scorer in the match and had the first-hand experience of seeing her son achieve the remarkable feat while his younger brother Matthew was in the outfield and grandfather Glenn watched from the boundary.
"It was surreal," said Stephen Robinson, who plays for the senior side told AFP. "I have been playing for 30 years and have taken hat-tricks but never anything like this.
"Time stood still and I thought, is this really happening?'" he further added.
