Former Proteas batsman Herschelle Gibbs has congratulated Kieron Pollard after the West Indies skipper became only the third man to hit six sixes in an international over in his team's Twenty20 victory over Sri Lanka on Thursday.

It came in the sixth over of a bizarre West Indies innings, bowled by off-spinner Akila Dananjaya who moments earlier in his previous over had been celebrating taking a hat-trick.

Gibbs achieved the feat against the Netherlands at the 2007 Cricket World Cup in the Caribbean and India's Yuvraj Singh did likewise at the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup against England in South Africa.

"March a popular month for hitting 6x6s 16/3/2007 and 3/3/2021 congrats @KieronPollard55," Gibbs wrote.

Gibbs also noted that all three players previously represented the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.
