The one thing that people enjoy the most in the IPL is sixes. Long, massive and breathtaking sixes give people the thrill like nothing else does. And, thankfully, the IPL is never bereft of balls going out of the ground and fans cheering in sheer delight with it.
Over the course of its nine seasons, there have been plenty of batsmen in the IPL who have smashed a bountiful of sixes while playing a particular knock. Here, we look back at the five batsmen with the most sixes in an innings in IPL history. Take a look.
5. AB De Villiers – 12 sixes v Gujarat Lions at Bengaluru, May 14, 2016:
The 360-degree man displayed his best in the match against Gujarat Lions last season. After settling in for a bit, De Villiers, playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore, began cracking sixes to literally every part of the ground. He pulled, he drove, he swept and he cut to make his way to a sensational unbeaten 129 off a mere 52 balls that included 12 remarkable sixes. It was a knock that actually took people’s breath away.
