If the batsmen do not take a single run while the ball goes to the boundary line it will be considered a six and 6 runs will be added to the batsman's total runs as well.

However, there is an exception. If the bowler bowls a no ball, and the batsman hits a six off that ball, the six is not counted. Only an extra run of a no ball will be added in the team's total.
