Six wickets in an innings in any format of the game is itself a dream for any bowler, let alone six in a single over. Aled Carey of Golden Point Cricket Club achieved the extraordinary feat against East Ballarat in a Ballarat Cricket Association fourth-team game in Victoria.

Carey went wicket-less in his first eight overs, and then stumbled upon a hat-trick with the first scalp caught in the slips, the second caught behind, and the third leg before wicket.

Carey, then, added three more wickets in his bag – all bowled. He ended up with six for 20 in the innings in nine overs.

“There were only a handful of spectators watching but someone from the crowd sensed something special was happening and managed to record Aled's fifth and sixth wickets,” John Ogilvie, secretary of Golden Point Cricket Club, was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

Carey was naturally astounded by his own feat. “It's something you don't see very often and I think this was just my lucky day. I don't think I'll ever do it again,” Carey told The Courier Sport.
