Players with most sixes in Indian Premier League as of 2019

by Statista Research Department, last edited Sep 23, 2019
Players with most sixes in IPL in India as of 2019 In 2019, Chris Gayle of Kings XI Punjab was the leading six hitter in the Indian Premier League with 326 sixes during the tournament. A six or a sixer is when the ball passes or touches the boundary of the playing field without having rolled or bounced before. The IPL is a professional Twenty20 cricket league conducted annually and followed religiously in the country with franchises representing the Indian states and cities. The tournament’s popularity is second to none, with the highest attendance amongst all cricket leagues in the world and sixth by average attendance among all sports leagues. Season ten of the heavily advertised campaign recorded over 500 million impressions in 2017.
The Gayle Storm

Popularly known as the ‘Universe Boss’, Chris Gayle remains a prominent and vital figure for any team he represents across any format, but he is expected to be at his best in the shortest format of cricket. Formerly a Royal Chargers Bangalore player, Gayle made a move to Kings XI Punjab, and supposedly brought the Gayle storm with him by hitting the maximum number of sixes in that year’s campaign.

Fear one, love all

The tournament has a dedicated fan base for many individual players from each franchise. Players like David Warner, Sunile Narine, the former team India captain MS Dhoni and more have a plethora or followers and devotees who follow and worship their idols supposedly like Gods. Not just individual players, the franchises representing the states have dedicated fan bases as well. The teams recorded over 50 million likes on Facebook and over 80 million followers on Twitter in 2018. With players from all over the world with immeasurable talents, the possibility of a new catchphrase gaining popularity in the future is eminent.
