Playing the second quarterfinal of the Vijay Hazare trophy for Maharashtra against Uttar Pradesh at Sardar Patel Stadium Ground, Motera, Ahmedabad, Gaikwad punished UP's Shiva Singh for seven sixes in the 49th over en route to an unbeaten 220* in 159 balls.
The over started with Gaikwad slogging the first ball between long-on and deep mid-wicket for six. On the second delivery, the batsman went down the ground and sent the ball over long-on. On the third ball, Gaikwad fired the ball to the cow-corner for a maximum. Next Gaikwad slapped the ball over long-off.
The over's fifth delivery was declared a No-Ball by the umpire and Gaikwad took the aerial route over the bowler's head and cleared the sight screen for the fifth six of the over. On the free-hit delivery, Gaikwad powered the ball over long-on. And finally on the last delivery of the over Gaikwad dismissed the ball out of his sight to deep mid-wicket to create history!
