Luke Robinson has created a surreal record which may not be broken for a long long time. He has created a record which is unique. He took 6 wickets in 6 deliveries and the best part was, all the victims were clean bowled. There were instances where 6 wickets were claimed but not all of them were out in a similar fashion.
Luke Robinson produced his match-winning performance this week for Philadelphia Cricket Club’s Under-13s, based near Houghton-le-Spring, Tyne and Wear in north-east England. Best part was that his entire family was there to witness this unique feat. While his grandfather Glenn was sitting among the spectators to witness it, his mother Helen who was the official score keeper has witnessed the uniqueness of the record and had informed all.
His younger brother Matthew was fielding where as his Father Stephen must have been a real lucky person to have witnessed his son’s record in close quarters as he was umpiring at the bowler’s end when the record was created.
“It was surreal,” said Stephen Robinson, who plays for the senior side. “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?’
A record of this sort and that too to be witnessed by the entire family of the record holder may not happen forever.
