Top 5 Teams with Most Sixes in IPL History

RCB ranks 2nd in this list even after having some big names in history

Lets see the top 5 teams with the most sixes in IPL history.

The crowd loves to see batters raining sixes. From a tantalizingly close six with ropes to a six of 50 rows into the stand. Spectators enjoy it and so does the six-hitting team. IPL has always gone past previous records of the number of sixes hit each season. Here we will see who ranks in the top 5 positions amongst the team with the most sixes in IPL.

Top 5 teams with most sixes in IPL history

5. Kolkata Knight Riders

This Kolkata-based franchise already has a kind of aura about them thanks to their connection with Bollywood stars. Well, another aura that they have is about power hitting. Since 2008, they have had batters like Brandon McCullum, Chris Gayle and now they have Andre Russell who can hit the ball really hard and really long. In total, they have hit 1113 maximums and it is 5th best in the history of IPL.

4. Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings is a surprise name in this list as they haven’t had the army of brutal batters as KKR has had. Perhaps they have scored 1165 sixes as a collective effort and with some beautiful shots. CSK are 4 times IPL champions. Over the years, they have had the likes of Brandon McCullum, Dwayne Bravo, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni and so many six hitters on their side.

3. Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings ranks at number 3 in the list of most sixes by an IPL team in history. It is interesting to see Punjab on the list as they have yet to register their IPL title glory. Anyway, they have earned maximums 1166 times till IPL 2021. They had the firepower in Shaun Marsh, Virender Sehwag, KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Glenn Maxwell, and many more.

2. Royal Challengers Bangalore 

Without RCB, the list would have been incomplete. They are a machine of scoring sixes. They had AB de Villiers who can clear the ropes on any ball. He was such a natural hitter that when he used to hit the ball in the air, no one even thought that he was risking his wicket. Then comes Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli. They have scored 1275 sixes and are at 2nd position in the list of most sixes by an IPL team in history.

1. Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians hit sixes for fun. Pollard manages to hit sixes as if he is playing with Gully cricketers and Pandya smashes with all his might. Not to forget Rohit Sharma’s lazy sixes, he hits them just as if he is strolling in the park. This most successful franchisee of IPL and 5 times winner has scored 1308 sixes which is the most by any IPL team in the history of IPL which is more than head and shoulders above the 2nd placed RCB.
