Each year, there are some players who are in immensely great form and hit sixes in a rather perforated way which really amuse the audiences a lot. The list has been endless and the number of hitters in the IPL format which really devastate the opposite team and leave them on their feet begging for mercy. But that is the actual meaning of IPL where if the whole team fails to play variably, a player stands like a “One Man Army” for his team by playing brilliant innings which includes the valuable sixes of the tournament. Each year nearly there are 500-600 sixes in the tournament. Crictracker brings top 5 innings which includes maximum number of sixes.
