A mix of batters from full-member nations and associate nations are hammering sixes to bowlers as lots of cricket action happens around the globe.
England all-rounder Ben Stokes is leading the charts in Test cricket in terms of most sixes in 2023. UAE’s captain Muhammad Wassem, who has hit the most sixes across formats this year, also occupies the top spot in the ODI format. While India’s Mr. 360, Suryakumar Yadav, is leaving everyone stunned with his crazy six-hitting in T20Is.
Muhammad Wassem also smacked the most sixes in an ODI innings this year. His knock of 119 included 12 massive sixes against Papua New Guinea in Kirtipur.
In March 2023, the cricketing world witnessed a power-hitting masterclass from none other than Johnson Charles. The West Indies batter went berserk against South Africa in Centurion and hammered 11 sixes while notching up his 118 runs.
Unfortunately, his aggressive performance went in vain as the Proteas chased the mammoth target of 259 with ease. Charles’ 11 biggies are the most in a T20I innings this year.
