Everyone loves when a batsman hits those glorious boundaries from the middle of the bat. It is one of the great joys of cricket seeing a batsman hit a four. Cricket has changed once ODI matches started to roll out. The crowds got to see the rise of batsmen hitting more fours because of one-day internationals. Batsmen took more risks in an attempt to hit the deliveries to the fence for four. The powerplays also unfolded subsequently and the batting maestros became more aggressive due to the fielding restrictions.

This meant the spectators got their well-earned money’s worth as they were entertained during the match. Who doesn’t likes to see the bowlers being hit for fours and sixes everywhere? But have you ever wondered who are those destructive batsmen that have hit the most fours?
