Key Insights

UAE’s Muhammad Waseem, who recently surpassed Rohit Sharma’s (78) record of hitting the most sixes in a calendar year, is also making noise in the 50-over format in 2023.

Rohit Sharma, India’s leading six-hitter across formats, is also not leaving an opportunity to send the ball in the air. With the Cricket World Cup scheduled in India, fans can expect more sky-high sixes from the ‘Hitman’.

India’s new opening batting sensation in ODIs, Shubman Gill, is also not far from his skipper in terms of smacking the bowlers across the park. He can surely give competition to his opening batting partner.

Heinrich Klaasen, the Proteas middle order batter, is going through a purple patch of his form and hitting massive sixes to bowlers in the ODI format. In the 4th ODI against Australia in September, Klaasen gave hell to the Australian bowling attack and smashed 13 towering sixes.
