Have you ever seen a ball getting touched by a bat at the perfect angle with perfect speed and perfect power, then flying flawlessly in the air and meeting the spectators face to face and living in the moment? Don’t get excited, I’m talking about a six in an IPL match. The craze of making runs as quickly as the fast cars of ‘Fast and Furious’ is now not enough in IPL, because fans want more and more every time. Another fifty in lesser balls, another hat-trick back to back, and most of all, a big six on every other ball. So, who has the most sixes in IPL 2020?
Player To Hit Most Sixes In IPL 2020
Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Ishan Kishan. The 23-year-old Mumbai Indians’ player has the record for most sixes in IPL 2020, which is 30. For the people who think it’s not that big of a deal then Pitch, please. Ishan played 13 innings out of 14 matches with a strike rate of 145.76 and fifty in his T20 debut. Ishan joined Mumbai Indians in 2018 and since then has been part of 2 cup lifting teams.
Being the calculative dynamite batsman, Ishan’s best innings in IPL 2020 was against Royal Challengers Bangalore scoring 99 runs in 58 balls whilst chasing a huge target of 201 runs. While in a match with Delhi Capitals, Ishan hit the need of the hour unrivaled 72 runs off 47 balls in which he smashed 8 boundaries and 3 sixes. As the newcomer is still growing, Ishan holds the record for most sixes in IPL 2020 in one innings that is 9 sixes, though he has to share it with Sanju Samson, a tough little chap.
Ishan Kishan is not the only contributor for sending balls outside the park, his whole team supports him in this crazy stunt. Yes, I’m talking about Mumbai Indians who hold the record for most sixes in IPL 2020 for a team that is massive 137 sixes. No wonder, Mumbai Indians’ batting line-up is always bombing the bowlers. Mumbai Indians played 16 matches in which they scored 32 more sixes than Rajasthan Royals and more sixes than combined CSK and RCB.
While Ishan also holds the record for most sixes in IPL 2020 in one inning, it is shared by none other than the surprise elemental player Sanju Samson. While Sanju wasn’t alone in achieving feats, his team Rajasthan Royals is the 2nd team to hit most sixes in IPL 2020 that is 105, immediately followed by Kings XI Punjab for 98 sixes and Delhi Capitals with 88 sixes. Players like Rahul Tewatia, Jos Buttler, and Jofra Archerhelped Sanju in kissing most boundaries by overhead.
In the continuing streak, Hardik Pandya is the true competitor/companion of Ishan Kishan as he scored 25 sixes in 13 innings. Kieron Pollard and Quinton de Kock also fulfilled their pillar roles in smashing those 22 sky-touching sixes each. But there’s one reigning champion of volcanic innings, Chris Gayle who smashed 23 sixes in just 7 innings and also 8 sixes in one inning. Watching Gayle play in his best form is still like achieving nirvana for most of the IPL fans.
Talking about dreaming, IPL season 11 which happened in 2018 saw the most sixes in IPL ever which was 872. Chennai Super Kings is the champion that year, they were also champion in throwing most sixes that season with Shane Watson and Ambati Rayadu with 35 and 34 sixes respectively. Whether it be Sharjah or Wankhede, IPL players never fail to show that there’s no better format to let it all out in one go. Although there are other boundaries too, where KL Rahul is the king of scoring 14 fours and 7 sixes in one inning, this orange cap holder also has the most dots and singles in one season. Fascinating, isn’t it?
All in all, there’s no IPL without a crowd cheering from the seats, without the dream of the prize car getting hit, without the dream of your favorite team winning, and most importantly without the ever happening rush of catching the ball once from your spectator seat. And as this season is going, there’s no doubt that this year you will see the unimaginable!
