London, July 18 (ANI): Teenager Jamie Lee smashed an incredible 11 sixes in two overs, making himself a big hit with his cricket team.

In the first over, 18-year-old Jamie hit all six deliveries from a spin bowler over the boundary. For the next over, Jamie again faced a spin bowler. But this time he swiped at the first ball - and missed.

But he middled the next five, chalking up 66 runs in just 12 balls.

Jamie, who scored a further five sixes in his 132 not out, said: I smashed most of the sixes straight over the bowlers head. It was a brilliant feeling.

There were some polite claps when I got my first six and then the excitement mounted. People were cheering on the boundary and when I got my sixth six in a row, they just went mental, he added.

Jamie admitted that he got carried away as the second spinner came up to test him.

The Mirror quoted Jamie as saying that spinners first ball came down to the leg side he went forward to whack it, but missed the delivery.

I just decided to carry on hitting and I knocked the next five for six, he said.

His batting led the second XI of Suffolks Mildenhall cricket club to a swift victory when they scored the 208 runs made by Walsham-le-Willows in a mere 13 overs.

Jamie usually turns out for the First XI as a bowler but was supposed to be taking it easy because he had a shoulder injury. (ANI)
