Indias overall sixes in 2022

Indian batters had a topsy-turvy last year. The pool of elite Indian batters scored many runs across all formats and in order to do that, cleared the fence many times. 

Shreyas Iyer, Surya Kumar Yadav, and Rishabh Pant were the standout performers for India in 2022 and scored a chunk of the runs. Let us look at details on Indias overall sixes in 2022.

Despite the fact that India performed poorly in both the T20 Asia Cup and the ICC T20 World Cup. Surya Kumar Yadav excelled with the bat in both competitions. Virat Kohli also performed admirably in the T20 internationals. After scoring most of his runs in the game’s shortest format. With 466 sixes scored across all formats in 2022. India also had the most sixes. As a result of players like Surya Kumar, Virat Kohli, and the group being devastated by the willow, particularly in the T20 format, the Indian team frequently cleared the fence.

India hit 309 sixes in the 2019 calendar year, which ranks 2nd in their sixes list. Before that, Indian batters cleared the boundary 296 times in 2017, 265 times in 2018 and 227 times in 2009.

Indian Players with the most Sixes so far in a calendar year: 

Surya Kumar Yadav was the Indian batter with the highest number of sixes in 2022. He hit 74 sixes in total last year, 68 of which came in the T20I format.

Virat Kohli’s T20 dominance also shows in his six-hitting prowess that the highest scorer r for India in the test last year was the heaviest six-hitter format of the game with 21 sixes.

Player Name Test Six ODI Sixes T20I Total Sixes
Surya Kumar Yadav 0 6 68 74
Virat Kohli 1 2 26 29
Shreyas Iyer 6 13 20 39
Rohit Sharma 1 12 32 45
Rishab Pant 21 5 9 35
KL Rahul 0 7 26 33


In recent years, six-hitting has developed into an essential component of batting strategies for teams. We shall observe more of this in the upcoming years because to the ongoing development of willow traits and changes in players’ mindsets. The introduction of the T20I format has also resulted in a large number of sixes because the shorter format encourages players to hit huge shots that reach the boundary quickly. A limited-overs series between India and Sri Lanka and New Zealand will open 2023. The Border-Gavaskar Trophy match against Australia is scheduled to follow.
