5 players who have hit more Sixes than Fours in T20Is

Dont cricket fans just love to relive unique records created by their favorite players?

In this article we will go through a unique milestone milestone that is actually very hard to achieve. Hitting a six isn’t the easiest of tasks, even on flat pitches. Power, timing, perfection, you name it! A batsman needs the perfect combination of the aforementioned traits to register the perfect blow.

Lets take a look at 5 players who hit more Sixes than Fours in the shortest version of the game.

Evin Lewis (West Indies)

The West Indian opener is a very aggressive batsman who likes to take the bowlers head-on. Most adept in the shortest format of the game, Lewis is a very good stroke player which gives him the edge over others. However, his proclivity for the aerial routes is something to watch out for.

With 934 international T-20 runs at a staggering strike rate of 155 plus, Lewis has smashed 73 sixes vis-à-vis his 64 fours. Being an ardent attacker of the ball, he plays out of the crease for most of the time and sees off the new ball in style with big hits of his own.

Andre Russell (West Indies)

Another West Indian hard-hitter who can destroy you single-handedly if he starts to fire, Andrew Russell makes great use of his strength when it comes to smacking boundaries.

With 540 T-20 international runs, big Dre Rus has hammered 42 sixes while his boundary count is only 32. Being very candid, his technical aspect of the game isn’t great. However, he makes up for the lag with brute power in those sturdy wrists that can consign anything out of the park that falls in his slot. Such is the brawn which this man houses, that at times even edges go past the rope. It isn’t a wonder that he finds himself second in the list.

 

Colin de Grandhomme (New Zealand)

Known for his explosive batting, Grandhomme can ruin any bowler’s day in the blink of an eye. Numbers that brag about 487 runs at an ailing average of 18.03, Grandhomme is more popular for his power.

With immense power behind a deadly swing of the willow, Grandhomme has presented some blistering hits at crucial junctures of the games to deliver New Zealand out of troubles. He has clobbered 29 sixes while his fours count stands at 27.

 

Peter Joseph Moor (Zimbabwe)

Currently the vice-captain of the Zimbabwean cricket team, Peter Moor is one of the national team’s rising stars who has shown amazing talent promise in the last few years. With 364 runs in his kitty, Moor has flashed signs of vintage Stuart Carlisle in his limited batting performances.

His hard-hitting skills make him a crowd favorite as he loves to entertain the spectators with some big hits. His count of sixes is 24 while his boundary count stands at 22.

 

Asif Ali (Pakistan)

 

Though Asif’s International career is yet to take off, he has shown his batting prowess on a few occasions. If there is one thing that this lad has been regular with, it is smashing a higher number of sixes than fours.

With 19 sixes and 15 fours, Asif is trying desperately to fight the current circumstances and return to the national team. His figures read 331 runs from 25 matches at a strike rate of 128.29.
