In the modern era big hits rather sixes are a pretty common scenario in the game. And there are a huge number of gigantic hitters of the ball who are capable of clearing the ground by miles.
Here is the list of top 5 batsmen who hit longest sixes of history.
1. Albert Trott
The supreme place in the list is probably the oldest in this list. Albert Trott was a player for both England and Australia in the late 1800s. In 1899, he did strike a six that cleared the pavilion of the Lord’s Cricket Ground.
2. Shahid Afridi
For one more moment, Shahid Afridi makes a presence in the place. It had been Pakistan’s match versus South Africa in the 3rd ODI of the series during Pakistan’s visit to South Africa a few years back. The six was very big which it did clear the stadium and in addition to it, the ball went into the golf course nearby the cricket ground.
3. Yuvraj Singh
Perfectly, it’s minimum amazing that Yuvraj Singh’s name is usually stringed to sixes. The player to hit 6 sixes within an over in International T20 has strike lots of sixes. He is probably the only player which could clear the ground with a minor flick of the wrists.
4. Mark Waugh
One of the most stylish batsmen Australia get ever created, Mark Waugh does create his position in the list with a majestic strike against the Kiwi spinner, Daniel Vettori in November, 1997 during the second test of New Zealand’s tour to Australia. On a tossed up delivery, Vettori invited Mark to strike and he did admit the challenge and managed to hit a massive hit right over the bowler’s head.
5. MS Dhoni
Not surprisingly, for one more moment, the Indian skipper of the smaller platforms seems in the list and this moment having an much larger hit. It was the complement between India and New Zealand in March, 2009 and India, batting 1st were in way to generate a huge score. Just then, in the 44thover of the innings, MS Dhoni was standing and delivered his unique helicopter shot and the ball, just like a trace of bullet sailed deep into the stands of the long off area.
