Seven sixes, is it a record?
Heshan Chamara a right-hand batsman playing for St. Benedict's College under-15 team in the Division I cricket tournament, scored seven sixes in one over inclusive of a no-ball against Zahira College, Maradana played at De Mazenod College grounds, Kandana.

He was unbeaten on 42 when the declaration was made in the Ben's first innings.

If my memory is correct another former Ceylon and Benedictine cricketer Lionel Fernando scored a double century and captured all ten wickets against St. Anne's Kurunegala in 1957 - a world record.
