Most Sixes in T20 World Cup

Twenty Twenty cricket is a craze, enthusiasm and joy. Batsmen make this format more interesting with their wide array of shots across the field. Who can forget Yuvraj Singh’s brilliant knock of 58 (16b, 4s x 3, 6s x 7) against England at a league match in World T20 2007? He won every one’s heart with his 6 gigantic sixes in 6 balls off Stuart Broad making him the only cricketer in the history to do so at an international match. India’s ace batsman was at his best in the entire season contributing 148 runs with the bat in 6 matches with two important fifties helping India winning the trophy at final.

But, from the next season onwards, the big-hitting Caribbean batsman Chris Gayle started getting global limelight for his astonishing ability to en-route the balls out of the stadium. No doubt, in T20 matches, Chris Gayle is every bowler’s nightmare. Gayle’s ability to play extra fast cricket puts from the first ball puts him ahead of the rest. He is currently leading the list of batsman who hit maximum sixes in T20 world cup. Here is the complete list.
