The format of Twenty20 (T20) is considered to be the slam-bang version of the game, as batsmen tend to produce some incredible as well as unique shots to keep the runs coming at any cost.
On the same note, Afghanistan all-rounder Rashid Khan, playing for Adelaide Strikers in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL), hit a six while sitting.
Here is more.
It all happened in a match between Strikers and Sydney Thunder on Tuesday.
Strikers were chasing and in the 17th over, Rashid faced spinner Chris Green, as the latter bowled a full toss.
Rashid flicked it towards the fine leg, but he gave the ball enough elevation to sail over the boundary.
Interestingly, he almost sat down while playing the shot.

In IPL, I advise Sunrises to consider sending Rashid khan as opener. It is going to be become very big hit just like Sunil marine as opener. I bet on it.— K Aravind Sai (@Aravindsai) December 31, 2019

Winning the toss and electing to bat, Thunder posted an average total of 168/5 courtesy opener Usman Khawaja and skipper Callum Ferguson's 63 and 73, respectively.
In reply, the Strikers fell short by just three runs, despite opener Jake Weatherald hitting 52 and Rashid chipping in with 18-ball 40.
Nonetheless, both the teams are on seven points, as Thunder sit atop with better NRR.
Rashid grabbed the headlines, earlier in the tournament, for playing with a new type of bat, which was termed as "The Camel" by cricket.com.au.
The unique aspect of the bat is that it sports a depression.
Meanwhile, his IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) urged him to carry the bat for IPL 2020.
