Test cricket often witnesses players employing defensive tactics while batting, as they have to preserve their wickets to score big runs. But with the recent advent of T20 cricket, coupled with the Bazball approach, players are stepping out of their shells to smash huge sixes.

Pakistan’s all-rounder, Aamer Jamal, had a blistering start to his Test career, as he played a crucial role with both the bat and ball against Australia. His team couldn’t win a Test against Australia, but his outing with the bat in the third Test provided a chance to taste victory down under. Jamal’s knock of 82 off 97 balls included 4 big hits, which came against Nathan Lyon and Josh Hazlewood.

Ben Stokes, who hit the most sixes last year (17), will look to repeat the feat once more and solidify his spot as the leading six-hitter in the format.
