The T20 revolution took the cricketing fraternity by storm in the year 2004 when the first-ever T20I took place between England and New Zealand women’s teams. The format has since revolutionized the game of cricket all across the world, giving the audience a dose of entertainment through the action-packed cricket in quick time. T20 came as a boon for batters who like to go bonkers from ball one and stamp their authority on the opposition’s bowling attack.
The format gave them the license to look for boundaries right from the word go and take the team to ascendancy in the match straight away. There have been many batters in T20Is who took full advantage of their license and sent the ball for a tour all around the ground.
On this note, let’s take a look at the top five batters who have smashed the most number of sixes in T20 Internationals:
Guptill has been one of the most prolific batters in the shortest format. The batter has wreaked havoc on the opposition bowlers numerous times in his career. He sits on top of the list of having the most sixes in T20 Internationals with 170 sixes to his name in 113 innings.
The 35-year-old has a six ratio of 1.50 per innings. Apart from this, he’s also the second-highest run-scorer in T20 internationals with 3444 runs to his name, at an average of 32 and a strike rate of 136. He has scored two hundreds and 20 fifties in T20 internationals.
