Top 10 Batsmen with Most Sixes in ODI Cricket

The most interesting thing in cricket is to see a sixer all over the boundary line. The spectators’ loves it as well as the batsman loves it. The score board runs quicker and the two guys who really hate that show should be the bowler and the umpire in a lighter sense. To hit a six is not even a piece of cake for the batsman. The bowlers keep on challenging the batsmen with new and varied deliveries. The ball moves around, turns, swings and behaves like it wants too. It is the batsman who still has to set himself in for the delivery, find the right area, control, timing and elevation to sail the ball into the stands for a sixer.

At No 6 is the six creator of the recent era of cricket, Indian skipper MS Dhoni. He is a kind of batsman who can hammer the best ball from a best bowler. He can hit a Yorker for a six with his signature helicopter shot. MS Dhoni has to have a higher place in the list of top batsmen with most sixes in ODI. Though he is currently placing in the second half of the list with 177 sixes registered to his name in 250 ODI matches that he has played so far. Anyone can expect him at the top of the list by the time he calls it a day from ODI cricket, for the rate and ease with which he has been hitting the monster blows off late.

Dhoni initially made himself a swashbuckling and ruthless hitter of the ball, eventually turned himself a self-controlled yet volcanic batsman who has complete faith and belief in himself and quite capable to launch a massive submissive attack on his opponents when other batsmen loose nerve.

Shahid Afridi, popularly known as “Boom Boom Afridi” is the table topper in this list of top batsmen with most sixes in ODI innings. This Pakistani all-rounder in his early years of international career was a better off batsman than a bowler. For the most part of his 18 years ODI career with 389 matches, he has appeared as a biggest threat for the opponent bowlers. Afridi has the capability to swing the tide of the match on his own and in very little time. Hitting sixes is lot like a regulation for him. Afridi never takes time to get his eye in and is always right at the job.

The former record holder of fastest ODI hundred in just 37 balls, is the man we are on at top of our list. With 342 and still counting, he is the top batsman with most sixes in ODI cricket. No doubt, he is way beyond the reach of other 9 in this list of top 10 batsmen with most sixes in ODI.

CSK all-rounder Dwayne Bravo misses IPL

CSK all-rounder Dwayne Bravo misses IPL

The west indian skipper Dwayne Bravo is possibly missing his next IPL matches after being injured at the match against Kings 11 punjab last Friday. He got knocked at his shoulder trying to stop a switch hit by Gleen Maxwell in the 11th over. He was reported taking to the hospital.

The captain MS Dhoni said,

“ sad that he won’t be part of dressing room, hope he recovers soon.”

The recovery will take 4 to 5 weeks. It is definitely a bad blow for the CSK. Now its time to see how vital he is for the CSK.

After signing in 2012, Bravo has become one of the striking players for the Chennai Chennai Super Kings. In that year, he ended up the session scoring 461 runs at an average of 46, strike rate 140 and became the highest wicket taker for CSK with 19 wickets.

CSK all-rounder Dwayne Bravo misses IPL

In 2013, he was the purple cap winner , taking 32 wickets at average 15 for the CSK. But at the very beginning of IPL 7, 2014 the injury will certainly suffer CSK, the two times IPL champion. CSK spent 40 million USD for Bravo in 2013 IPL auction.

Not only in IPL career, Bravo has important part in the West Indies team too. With an test average of 39 , ODI and T20 average 29, he is the powerful batsman for the team. As a bowler, he took 86 wickets in Test and 191 in ODI and 33 in T20. In a limited over match he is always a key player for West indies.

If you look into the last 4 or 5 matches, he had a pretty good knock in the T20 world cup held in dhaka this year. Last 7 matches he scored 154 runs being not out in the 1 game and took away 4 wickets. He used to field superbly mostly at the point.

 

There is hardly any replacement for Bravo. It will indeed a great loss for the CSK. Will they manage to overcome?
