English Cricketer Tom Banton who is currently playing in the Australia T20 League for Brisbane Heat, on Monday created havoc on the field with his blistering performance. The player hit a 16 ball fifty with 5 sixes in a row. The game that was reduced to 8-over-per-side due to rain playing a spoilsport. Brisbane Heat won the toss and elected to bat first against Sydney Thunder. Banton came to open for the side along with the team’s captain Chris Lynn.

Banton was on fire as he made the opponent bowlers go weak in the knees with his hard-hitting performance. He played a terrific inning pulling-off 56 runs off 19 balls which included two fours and seven sixes, out of which 5 came in a row.

Both the openers gave a startling start to Brisbane Heat, contributing 50 runs within 3 overs, laying the foundation for the side’s victory. 

The organizers of the Australia T20 League took to their official Twitter handle, celebrating Banton’s amazing performance on the field.   "This is just extraordinary. Tom Banton launches five consecutive sixes! #BBL09", the tweet read. 

In the current season of Australia T20 League, Banton has thus far scored 151 runs from 5 matches.

The player has been in form after he was signed by the franchise for the upcoming season of the Indian T20 League.
