Cricket has evolved over the years and so is batting. Only Test cricket existed before the 70’s when batters were required to show reliance and stay at the crease for long. However, the introduction of limited-overs cricket enhanced the significance of the run rate. With a certain limit in the number of deliveries, batters started focusing on scoring runs at a brisk pace alongside keeping their wickets safe.The need to run fast also motivated hitters to play big shots and hit sixes in international cricket. Hitting the ball on the strings is definitely not bread and butter, because hitting the ball with a six takes strength and timing. In the old days, players didn't really insist on taking the regional path. However, modern cricket is fast approaching and the sixth play is becoming mainstream.It wouldn't be wrong to say that the introduction of the T20 format made six hits popular. However, there were players who did not mind sending the ball over the ropes even in the longest form. In particular, the red ball speaks more than the white ball. However, in the midst of any challenge, a certain breed of hitter would support his impressive hitting skills. As of now, former New Zealand captain Brendon McCollum (107) and former Australian goalkeeper Adam Gilchrist (100) are the only two players to hit the 100 Six in Test format.Most sixes in Test matches:NameTeamSixesMatchesRunsBrendon McCullumNew Zealand1071016453Adam GilchristAustralia100965570Chris GayleWest Indies981037214Jacques KallisSouth Africa9716613289Virender SehwagIndia911048586Big hits and smashing sixes have definitely become an important aspect of batting in today's cricket. However, one must not forget that the international bowlers' confrontation with the cleaners requires batting. Therefore, taking six races out of one go requires some skill and skill. However, current players like Rohit Sharma, David Warner, and Ben Stokes have tasted success in all forms with their aggressive approach.Most sixes in international cricket:NameTeamSixesMatchesRunsChris GayleWest Indies55047819548Shahid AfridiPakistan47652411196Rohit SharmaIndia43837914900Brendon McCullumNew Zealand39843214676MS DhoniIndia35953817266Speaking of the most sixes in international cricket, universe chief Chris Gayle tops the list with 550 six across all three formats.

He has made a total of 534 sixes in international cricket (Test matches, ODI, and T20 matches in the West Indies).In Bridgetown, India was facing the West Indies in the T20 World Championships in May 2010.

But these are all unofficial videos and records without certification.If you are wondering how long is 250m and why is it impossible to reach, I can give you an idea. The Taj Mahal in Agra is only 73 meters tall! Now you have the idea, right?Who hit the shortest six?Well, there is also a record for hitting the shortest six! Pakistani wicket-taker Rashid Latif holds the record, but he did not go too far!It looks interesting? Let me tell you the story. He is at the same time funny, and goofy too.In the opening match of the Cricket Champions Cup 2002, Pakistan was facing 26th place with a score of 91/4. Upal Chandana was bowling for his team in Sri Lanka. Play a nice sweeping shot on the first ball. Unfortunately, the ball hit the helmet of former Sri Lankan wicketkeeper Kumara Sangakkara, who was behind him. Latif completes a run before the player takes the ball and returns it to Sangakara.Steve Bucknor was the match referee. He gave six runs to the batting team and declared the ball dead!mysterious? Well, the ICC rules that if a batsman hits the ball, and the ball hits the helmet placed behind the goalkeeper, five runs will be awarded to the batting team. Cute takes one song. So 5 + 1 = 6 runs!The rules are fun sometimes, right?Also, Read - Who is the Best Yorker King?
