Most sixes in IPL season (2008 to 2022)

Share

Most sixes in IPL – It is a known fact that over the years, the shortest format of the game evolved, the importance of sixes in the game gained more weightage and teams started focussing on recruiting genuine six hitters who could change the equation with just two hits even on a tricky surface. One of the major reasons why West Indies are called pioneers of T20 cricket is they realised the value of six hitting long before the game evolved and one can see why the batsmen from Caribbean dominate the list of most sixes.

Here’s a list of most sixes in IPL since the inception of Indian Premier League

Season Player Team Sixes
2008 Sanath Jayasuriya Mumbai Indians 31
2009 Adam Gilchrist Deccan Chargers 29
2010 Robin Uthappa Royal Challengers Bangalore 27
2011 Chris Gayle Royal Challengers Bangalore 44
2012 Chris Gayle Royal Challengers Bangalore 59
2013 Chris Gayle Royal Challengers Bangalore 51
2014 Glenn Maxwell Kings XI Punjab 36
2015 Chris Gayle Royal Challengers Bangalore 38
2016 Virat Kohli Royal Challengers Bangalore 38
2017 Glenn Maxwell Kings XI Punjab 26
2018 Rishabh Pant Delhi Daredevils 37
2019 Andre Russell Kolkata knight Riders 52
2020 Ishan Kishan Mumbai Indians 30
2021 KL Rahul Punjab Kjngs 30
2022 Jos Buttler Rajasthan Royals 45

Chris Gayle stands tall in most sixes in IPL list

Chris Gayle has hit 50 sixes in an IPL season for more than once in the history of IPL. His country mate Andre Russell has done it once in 2019. Chris Gayle has topped the most sixes in an season thrice with all of them coming for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Those were his peak years where he destroyed anyone and everyone at his sight.

Jos Buttler had the chance to break Chris Gayle’s most sixes by anyone in a single season of IPL (59) in this season but the destructive England opener faded away big time in the second half of the IPL which dented the golden opportunity.
