Before people misunderstand, my point is that the focus should be on what he DID achieve rather than yet again what was ALMOST achieved (but wasn't)
While it is a remarkable achievement, yet more shoddy journalism from the BBC... how on earth does that imbecile hold his job when he is unable to recognise that five sixes and a four do not make six sixes?
To 47, ironically Willey is a left-hander. One can analyse between left and right handers. Lyon has got more than 200 Test wickets which is the most important part of the game.
It is heartening to see England players putting the match result ahead of personal glory. Of course the crowd wanted to see him go for the 6th six, but he shunned risking his wicked at a key point in the game - good for him! Nevertheless, with that sort of skill he should be batting higher than 9 or 10. Maybe he can be considered for one of the tricky test positions (No.3 or No.5)?
T20 is okay for schoolboy rounders fans, I suppose, but I prefer cricket myself.
6x6 is 36 not 34
@81. More like your one day team who were frankly pathetic!
does cricket not need to come into the 21st century; with F.1 saying goodbye to the 'walk-on girls' we've now got dancing girls at the T-20 ;modernise ahem
About time Lyon got his just deserts.Thats how the test team should have played him.Once you hit a few boundaries of spinners they lose their rhythm.He was very vocal before the test series and said some bad things so deserved it.
Was it Lyon saying before the ashes they were going to end careers? Go and speak to the crowd about it Lyon when you fetch the tailenders 5th 6.
You just can't keep a good Willey down...
Lyon is a class bowler at all levels, so this is a good achievement. Willey comes off 1 in 50 though so moving him to the top of the order not a good plan.
Not as good as Yuvraj Singh against Stuart Broad... 6 6 6 6 6 6Go and fetch Broady!

Super effort from David Willey and not for the first time either.If he could bring more consistency to his game then he could become an England player for many years to come.The real losers in this instance will be the grieving Yorkies of course.
A HYS for a meaningless friendly?
Maybe he could go and give the Pommy Test Team some tips on how to play Garry 😂😂😂
