Having already secured his century, Lawrence went into overdrive in the 128th over of the Surrey innings. Bashir’s delivery found its way onto Lawrence’s bat, and the right-handed batsman wasted no time, launching the ball high and clear over the boundary for a maximum. This was just the beginning of a dream over for Lawrence.

Bashir’s next three deliveries were all dispatched in similar fashion, with Lawrence treating them with disdain and sending them sailing over the ropes for sixes each. The Worcestershire bowler looked visibly perplexed, unable to find an answer to Lawrence’s onslaught. The fifth ball of the over saw Lawrence attempt a slog-sweep, connecting cleanly and propelling the ball over mid-wicket for another maximum.

Narrowly Misses Out on Record-Breaking Six

With a chance to achieve the rare feat of hitting six sixes in a single over, Lawrence went for a big shot off the next delivery. However, Bashir managed to find some semblance of control, bowling a delivery well wide of the leg stump. The ball evaded both Lawrence’s bat and the Worcestershire wicket-keeper, scampering away to the boundary for five wides.

The wayward delivery offered a lifeline to Bashir, who managed to bowl a no-ball for which the penalty in County Cricket is two runs. Lawrence, perhaps frustrated at the missed opportunity for a historic six, took a single off the free hit before Bashir finally ended the over with a dot ball.

While Lawrence couldn’t quite achieve the record-breaking six sixes in an over, his knock undoubtedly put Surrey in a commanding position. The batsman’s aggressive display, coupled with his century, will serve as a major boost for the team’s confidence as they look to extend their lead over Worcestershire in the County Championship encounter.
