Most Sixes in a Single Edition of T20 World Cup

Hitting a six is a skill that needs multiple things to go well in tandem. Picking the right ball to hit, timing the shot to perfection, the angle of the bat swing, adequate wrist power, and most importantly, the rotation of the hip – everything needs to be perfected. For few, all the before-mentioned prowess comes naturally. Without a doubt, Chris Gayle is one of that.
