The beginning of the web series "Sixer" and the end of ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022 came at the ideal time. Cricket fans got a chance to be able to enjoy both on-field and off-field drama.

According to Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav is now playing cricket in New Zealand like it's "another video game innings," while actor Shivankit Singh Parihar of the Sixers is being compared to the Indian batter in terms of batting style.

When asked if he thought his style matched that of SKY, who loves to deal in boundaries, the actor said that he may be playing like Suryakumar Yadav in the series, but when it comes to looks, he matches Shikhar Dhawan more.

"I have read a few comments on Instagram that said, 'Your shots are looking like Surya'. Right now, Surya is the biggest star and is only hitting sixes. I have not played any scoop in the video, but it does match," the actor said.

However, laughing it out, he went on to add, "But, you can say, I do look more like Shikhar Dhawan. Only look wise, but when it comes to the game, Dhawan is known for dealing in fours more than sixes."

Talking about the show, the new Amazon miniTV series "Sixer" revolves around a group of cricketers and cricket enthusiasts who come together to overcome personal odds and help each other in the field of gully cricket. It is a team they form to win the local tennis-ball cricket tournament.

Arunabh Kumar, Shreyansh Pandey, and Shivankit Singh Parihar are the show's creators. Nikku's lead part is performed by Parihar.

The other actors in the show are Badri Chavan, who plays Aussie; Rahul Tewari, who plays Alok; Karishma Singh, who plays Gargi; Brij Bhushan Shukla, who plays Rajesh Bhaiya; Vaibhav Shukla, who plays Deepak; Puneet Batra, who plays Gopwani; Prashant Singh, who plays Anant Pratap Singh; Suraj Rikame, who plays Arshad; Anandeshwar Dwivedi as Nagu Bhaiya; Vivaan Karan as Gulli; Aparajita Bajaj as Madhu; and Alankrit Duggal as Vikas.

The six-part TVF sports drama has kept viewers on the edge of their seats and brought them along for the ride with Nikku, the captain and driving force of his team.

With the cricket as its main topic, it has been able to capitalize on the country's affection for the sport. Regarding the game, India leads New Zealand 1-0 in the current three-match T20I series.

When the Indian side plays as many ODIs against the Kiwis in the upcoming days, Dhawan will also be back in action.
