Top 5 longest sixes in International Cricket

Cricket is a game of limits. When a hitter hits a boundary, it’s a sight to behold. When a hitter scores a four, it is classic; however, when a batter reaches the boundary for a six, it is impactful and puts pressure on the opponent. While hitting the ball into the stands does need some arm strength, it is a mix of strength, skill, and timing that elevates a hit from being just another six to being a blow cherished for years to come. In a game of cricket, as essential as it is to rotate the strike and keep the scoreboard rolling, it is occasionally that one six separates the team that wins from the team that loses. In this article, we will have a sight at the longest sixes in international cricket.

Brett Lee, Australia’s now-retired ace fast bowler, is one of the oddest names on this list. He also owns the record for striking the ball over the 130-metre barrier for a maximum. To make matters worse, contrary to popular belief. He hits this six out of the park against the West Indies in 2005, putting him in second place.
