Brisbane Heat’s Chris Lynn has been in sublime form during the current edition of the Big Bash League (BBL) and he took it to another level against the Hobart Hurricanes on Friday.

Chasing 174 to win, captain Brendon McCullum and Lynn were all over the Hurricanes’ bowling during the PowerPlay as the hosts got off to a flying start.

But the best came off the first delivery of the seventh over when Lynn took on Shaun Tait, who has made his reputation over the years as one of the quickest bowlers in the world – and the ball went sailing over the mid-wicket boundary.

The hit was so clean that the ball cleared the roof at the Gabba and the distance measured on the six was 121 metres, which makes it one of the biggest sixes ever hit.

Heat won the game by seven wickets, with Lynn scoring his second unbeaten half-century in as many matches.
