Sixes in cricket are like home runs. Some batsman hit them with immense power; some will time the ball incredibly well. Very few players in cricket are fond of hitting sixes regularly in cricket.
Chris Gayle, known for hitting big sixes, has hit the maximum number of sixes across all formats.
MS Dhoni’s helicopter shot to six is one of the most talked cricket shots in the last decade. His ability to push away the Yorker length delivery over the long-on region has always been sensational to watch.
Rohit Sharma, the ODI Monster, has his own style of hitting sixes. He looks unstoppable whenever he goes big. And he likes to pocket a bunch of sixes every time he scores those daddy hundreds. He also has hit the highest number of sixes in the last decade.
