The Indian Premier League is one of the largest sports tournaments in the world. It is almost every cricketer’s dream to one day be a part of the IPL. One type of player that has always been in high demand in the IPL are those who can score big runs in overs 16-20.
It’s the death overs, where the batters try to take maximum risks. The batters who get the maximum reward by crushing the most sixes are always in demand in the IPL. Speaking of specialists, here’s a list of four batters who hit the most sixes in the overs 16-20 in their IPL career.
4. Rohit Sharma – 90 sixes in overs 16-20
The Mumbai Indians captain, Rohit Sharma, generally plays as an opener, but in the early stages of his career he played as a mid-range batter. He made it to the slog in 86 innings, hitting 90 sixes for Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians.
3. Kieron Pollard – 137 sixes in overs 16-20
Kieron Pollard is another name of the Mumbai Indians team that is on the list. The right-handed batter is one of three batters to have broken 100 sixes or more in the IPL’s slogovers.
2. AB de Villiers – 140 sixes
Former Royal Challengers Bangalore batter AB de Villiers is the second name on this list with 140 sixes to his name. mr. 360 could have reached the 150-six milestone in the slogovers, but he has withdrawn from all cricket formats including IPL.
1. MS Dhoni – 166 sixes
Former Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni has batted 153 times in the last five overs and knocked 166 out of the park. The wicketkeeper’s batter hit one of them against fast bowler Avesh Khan of Lucknow Super Giants at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai tonight. Dhoni’s record is unlikely to be broken.
