The IPL event is a showcase of outstanding batting and bowling. And the amount of sixes seen during T20 cricket matches is definitely the most entertaining feature of the game. Here in this article, we talk about a List Of The Five Biggest Sixes In IPL History.
Let’s Take a Look At Five Of The Biggest Sixes In IPL History
5.) Three outstanding players shared the fifth position in this list – Ross Taylor, Yuvraj Singh, and Chris Gayle. All three hit the 119-meter sixes, Ross Taylor in 2008, Yuvraj Singh in 2009, and the mighty Gayle in 2013.
4.) Everyone knows how big hitter Robin Uthappa is. When he is in the form he will turn out to be the biggest destructor on the field and he did this many times. He is quick to get in line with the ball and has strong forearms that allow him to hit big sixes. It goes a long way when he connects. Uthappa, who was in RCB camp in 2010, hit the massive 120m six against CSK.
3.) Adam Gilchrist is third on the list of the biggest sixes of IPL. Adam Gilchrist hit an enormous 122m hit. It was indeed one of the biggest sixes in IPL, as Gilchrist smashed Royal Challengers Bangalore’s quality bowler Charl Langeveldt for a big six.
2.) The man in second place is not a proper batter, and many people may be surprised to see his name. However, it is what it is. Praveen Kumar, who was in Punjab Kings in the 4th season of IPL, left all stunned during the game against Mumbai Indians’ when he smashed a rocket speed 124-meter six against the white-ball specialist Lasith Malinga.
1.) All-rounder Albie Morkel holds the first position on the list. The record for the biggest six in the IPL was created by Morkel in the opening season and his record still stands at the top. Morkel hit Pragyan Ojha for a monstrous 125-meter six during Chennai Super Kings‘ match against Deccan Chargers in 2008.
While the Indian Premier League is still in progress, and in the ongoing season, the Punjab Kings batter Liam Livingstone is holding the record of hitting the biggest six so far. The Englishman living up to his reputation as a six-hitting monster, as evidenced by his performance against Gujarat Titans on Tuesday night. Livingstone smashed a breathtaking 117-meter six during his blistering innings of 30 runs in just 10 deliveries against the table-toppers Gujarat Titans.
