IPL 2021 is just around the corner as the best cricketers in the world will entertain everyone again in the biggest cricket extravaganza. The tournament will be held in India which means that scoring runs will be easier as compared to UAE last season. The Indian pitches will be perfect for stroke play and the power hitters will be able to hit loads of sixes.
Talking about sixes recently Kieron Pollard joined an elite list when he smashed 6 sixes in a single over. This makes us wonder that can this achievement be achieved by any batsman even in IPL 2021.
Can anyone hit 6 sixes in one over even in IPL 2021? In this feature, we take a look at 5 of the best ball strikers featuring in the IPL who can well and truly hit 36 runs in one over and create history.
5 Players Who Can 6 Sixes In An Over In IPL 2021
5. Ab de Villiers
The great Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman is known to be a devastating six-hitter in the IPL. The margin of error for bowlers against Ab de Villiers is minimal as if they get their lengths wrong he more often than not deposits them 50 rows back in the stands.
The one thing that stands out with De Villiers is even after passing his prime he still manages to hit sixes fairly easily. Against both pace and spin, Ab is a master for executing big sixes which is why he is still one of the most dangerous T20 batsmen in the world. In his IPL career so far De Villiers has hit the second most sixes in the league’s history with 235. Come IPL 2021 if Ab is set and is looking to up the scoring rate he can very well hit 6 sixes in one over in IPL 2021.
