Will Jacks’ towering six: A 108m marvel in SA20 2024

In response, after losing a couple of wickets in the powerplay, Will Jacks displayed resilience, crafting a crucial 41 runs innings. His notable performance included five fours and two maximums, with the second maximum standing out as the most significant hit of the SA20 2024 season, covering an impressive distance of 108 meters.
