The stage is on the fireworks, as the 12thedition of the glitzy IPL fantasy league is continuing at full swing. Cricket-mad fans wait impatiently these days to watch their favourite players whack massive sixes. And send the cricket ball flying into the stands.
The shortest format of the game is indeed a nightmare for the bowlers who are being hit for maximums every now and then by the batsmen. However, the moment a batsman slams a six it pushes the overall adrenaline quotient up a few notches. It is the exciting moment for the fans who are sitting in the stadium or fans playing IPL fantasy cricket.
Here is a list compiled for IPL T20 fantasy cricket fans about players hitting most sixes in all these years. Wondering which two names will be on the top? Here is the end of your speculation. Read on:
It is absolutely no surprise for the fantasy cricket game fans that Chris Gayle is the “King” of sixes. It will take a few years for the second player in this list to match Gayle’s record. In 115 matches, he has hit clean 302 sixes. Wondering where does he get this energy to whack the balls and beat the bowlers? We are wondering too.
AB de Villiers
Yes, the South African legend, ABD – AB de Villiers is taking the second spot in this list. But we have already told you that he cannot touch Gayle’s record for a few years more. In 145 matches, he has hit 192 sixes. Interestingly, the first and second spot of this list has been captured by players of Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The finisher and the skipper of Chennai Super Kings are the third in this list. MS Dhoni is near to the record of ABD. In 179 matches, he has hit 191 sixes. So, we sure can see a tough competition for the second spot at the end of this IPL season.
This stylish cricketer of Chennai Super Kings is another close contender for the second spot this year. Suresh Raina like his team skipper has played in 180 matches so far and has hit 188 sixes. Raina is the fourth in this list.
The extraordinarily-talented Rohit Sharma is fifth on this list. Playing for Mumbai Indians, in 177 matches, he has hit 185 sixes. There are not many who can match the striking abilities of this cricketer.
The flamboyant Virat Kohli of Royal Challengers Bangalore can easily surpass his rivals to take the second spot in this 12th edition of IPL.In 167 matches, he has hit 178 sixes.
