Kapil Dev was first to hit 4 consecutive sixes in a Test match

Kapil Dev smashed four consecutive sixes off England spinner Eddie Hemmings at Lord's on July 30, 1990, becoming the first-ever player to hit sixes off four consecutive balls in Tests.

India had one wicket in hand and needed 24 runs to avoid the follow-on before Dev slammed the sixes. No batsman has hit more than four consecutive sixes in Tests.
