Just like every other edition, the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has seen some astonishing individual and team performances. There has been no shortage of sixes, with short boundaries, massive bat sizes, and favorable conditions being some of the factors that have contributed to batsman dominance in this edition.
Surprisingly perhaps, there is no Indian player on the list which just shows the strength and destructive capabilities of the overseas talent on display this season. On that note, we take a look at the top 5 longest sixes so far in this edition of the cash-rich league.
Top 5 longest sixes hit in IPL 2022 so far
5. Jos Buttler (107m)
The prospective “Orange Cap” winner finds himself on this list as well, to nobody’s surprise. While recording the highest individual score this season of 116, the English international bludgeoned a 107 meter six off Delhi Capitals’ (DC) Shardul Thakur.
Buttler hit nine sixes in his 65 ball innings, which ended up being the difference in a high-scoring thriller where both teams crossed 200, helping Rajasthan Royals narrowly come out on top. This is also the joint-highest number of sixes hit by a batter in an innings in IPL 2022.
The 31-year-old has been having a prolific season and is the highest run-getter this season, amassing 618 runs, including three centuries and fifties each. If Rajasthan does go all the way, Buttler will have a shot at breaking Virat Kohli‘s record of 973 runs in 2016 to go with four centuries.
