We all love to relish unique records created by our favorite cricketers. In different formats of the game, we stay witness to our favorite sportspersons racking up various milestones with heroic performances. However, the fun manifolds exponentially when this record that we are raving about becomes an extremely difficult task to achieve.
This article will showcase a milestone that is actually very hard to notch up because in most of cases it needs sheer brute power, accurate timing, and perfect placements. On rare occasions, luck plays a crucial role. We are going to look at 5 cricketers who have smashed more sixes than fours in the shortest format of the game. These statistics will only be based on international accomplishments.
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.
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
Known for his pyrotechnics all along the park when he gets going, this burly Black Cap can ruin your team’s day in a flash of an eye. Numbers that brag about 487 runs at an ailing average of 18.03, Grandhomme is more popular for his power.
With a massive back-lift and a vicious swing of the blade, Grandhomme has delivered blitzkriegs at crucial junctures of the games to deliver New Zealand out of troubles. He has clobbered 29 over boundaries while his boundary count stands at 27.
Peter Joseph Moor
Currently the vice-captain of the Zimbabwean cricket team, Peter Moor is a rising sensation who has shown considerable promise in the past three 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.
Though this Pakistani cricketer is still to take good flight, his initial days with the bat didn’t really seem promising. However, if there is one thing that this lad went on to notch up, was smashing a higher number of sixes than fours.
With 19 sixes and 15 fours, this Pakistani hard-hitter 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.
