Irish batsman Kevin O'Brien on October 21 equaled the world record of the most sixes hit in a calendar year in men's T20I cricket. The Irish batsman has equaled the record which was set up by New Zealand opening batsman Colin Munro. The Kiwis' opener had struck 35 maximums in 2018 in the shortest form of the game.

"WORLD RECORD! Kevin O’Brien equals Colin Munro's record for the most sixes hit in a calendar year in men's T20I cricket. Just the 35 maximums in T20Is this year for O'Brien!," T20 World Cup tweeted.

Kevin O'Brien has managed to clear the fence on 40 occasions in International cricket in 2019. Only Rohit Sharma (60), Chris Gayle (58) and Eoin Morgan (45) have scored more sixes than the Irish player in 2019.

Kevin Joseph O'Brien is an Irish cricketer who plays for Ireland, Leinster and Railway Union Cricket Club and has played for several English county cricket clubs. He scored the fastest century ever in the 50-over World Cup, coming from 50 balls against England on Two March 2011. He made his One Day International (ODI) debut in 2006 in Ireland's inaugural match. He was the first player for Ireland to take 100 wickets in ODIs.
