Closest I've heard to that is when Stuart Carlisle (Zim) hit a 6 out of the stadium, into the river. I was at that game, it was an Australians Chairman's XI vs Zimbabweans at Lilac Hill in, I think, 2003.

Now, I seem to remember something about someone jumping into the river looking for the cricket ball, whether or not this actually happened, or they actually found it, I do not know.
