The MVP of IPL 2019 would be included in any list where the discussion is about hitting sixes. The KKR all-rounder has a habit of hitting sixes regularly in the death overs. Russell was the hero for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) last season as he not only won the Most Valuable Player award but also won the Maximum Sixes Award (52 sixes) last season.

He smashed 120 sixes in the 54 IPL matches he has played. Overall, he has hit 436 sixes in 323 T20 matches. He is an asset for any T20 team and has the knack of clearing the boundary at will. No boundary is long enough to stop “Russell Muscle” from hitting his sixes, especially in IPL.

Those who have followed his game over the last few years would know how good he is when it comes to hitting sixes. Don’t be surprised if Andre Russel hits the most number of sixes in this edition as well.
