Twitter goes crazy as Tom Banton hits 2nd fastest BBL 50 with five 6s in a row


Tom Banton was phenomenal against Sydney Sixers on Monday as the swashbuckling English batsman hit the second-fastest fifty in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL). Playing for the Brisbane Heat, Banton slammed five sixes in a row against Sydney Thunder on Monday to complete his 16-ball fifty.

Banton has been in a supreme form in the ongoing tournament and the finest of his form was seen against Sixers when he smashed five consecutive off Arjun Nair in a game, which was reduced to an 8-overs per side due to rain. Banton smashed 19-balls 56 runs, second-fastest fifty in the BBL history. Brisbane Heat finished on 119-4 in eight overs with a run rate of 14.87 runs per over.
