Biggest Six Hitter In History
Cricket has seen many entertainers and some massive hitters. There is a long list of big hitters, however a select few stand out for the shots they have played. Big hitters not only hit sixes regularly, but the biggest have consistently cleared stadiums and hit balls up to fifty rows back way past the boundary.
The biggest hitters in history can be identified from the current and past era of players. Bigger bats and amazing six hitting practice has lead to the biggest hitters officially coming from the current era.
I would say three players come to mind. One being Shahid Afridi himself who has hit some enormous balls, sometimes longer than 140 meters. However Kieran Pollard comes to the list also, with Chris Gayle. Gayle especially has hit balls consistently close to 150 meters. If he middles it, it is usually 30-40 meters well past the boundary. Pollard also hit some monsters when he was in good form several years ago, however he’s currently out of touch.
It’s a hard argument to narrow the choice between Afridi or Gayle. One would have to probably lean towards Gayle. But Afridi has hit more monster sixes from both sides of the wicket, so he probably is the winner in my opinion.
