In a league match between the San Francisco Unicorns and the Texas Super Kings in the 2024 Major League Cricket tournament, Mitchell Santner delivered a match-winning performance, punctuated by a monstrous 106-metre six that sealed the victory for his team.

As the tension mounted, Santner faced a delivery from San Francisco’s Hassan Khan. What followed was a moment of sheer brilliance. Santner got under the tossed-up delivery outside off stump and unleashed a monstrous shot that sailed high and long, clearing the boundary by a considerable margin. The ball travelled an astonishing 106 metres, leaving the crowd in awe and the San Francisco fielders in disbelief.

That six from Santner was an absolute beast,” commented one of the commentators. “He just got under that delivery and sent it into the stratosphere. That’s the kind of shot that can turn a game on its head.

The mammoth six brought the Texas Super Kings within touching distance of victory, with only 4 runs needed off the 8 overs remaining. Santner and his partner Milind Kumar made light work of the remaining runs, sealing a 7-wicket victory for their team.
