Punjab Kings batter Liam Livingstone unleashed this monstrous hit against Gujarat Lions in IPL 2022. PBKS were on the cusp of victory when Livingstone arrived in the middle and the Englishman escalated the proceedings. He took the in-form Mohammed Shami in the first ball of the 16th over and sent the ball sailing over the deep square leg region.

The ball travelled a whooping 117 metres as the cricket world was in shock. Even Shami couldn’t help but praise Livingstone while PBKS skipper Mayank Agarwal was left dumbstruck. Someone like Kevin Pietersen, who was also known for his six-hitting capabilities, also stated that he hasn’t seen a bigger six than this.

Shami couldn’t come back afterwards as Livingstone cleared the ropes four more times in the same over, gathering 28 runs of it. He remained unbeaten on 30 off just 10 balls as the Mohali-based team clinched the contest by eight wickets.
