Most sixes in ODI – One day cricket has evolved over the years and one of the main reasons is the conditions and the brand of cricket being played by the teams around the world. Anything under 300 in this era in 50 overs cricket is considered as a below par total which was not the case 10 years ago. The players are trained to hit sixes and the results are showing in the totals that the teams are reaching effortlessly in their allotted fifty overs.
The Indian captain Rohit Sharma is a natural stroke maker and a gifted one at that. In the last 5 years in ODI cricket, Rohit Sharma has smashed a whopping 126 maximums in just 72 innings. He likes to take his time at the start of the innings but he is one of the most dangerous batsman to bowl to once set in ODIs.
Chris Gayle, the universe boss is 2nd on the list with 93 sixes. The most scary part with Chris Gayle being 2nd on this list is he has played just 30 one day international in the last 5 years and is sitting with 93 sixes. No one in top 9 has played fewer than him and has hit these many sixes.
It is fair to say that England revolutionized fifty overs cricket. They had decided to take the aggressive route after their shocking exit in the group stage in 2015 world cup. They started preparing flat tracks for ODIs in their home and went for the kill from ball 1. There are four batsmen from England in top 9 for the batsmen with most sixes in ODIs in the last 5 years including the recently retired England captain Eoin Morgan.
