Top 5 Biggest Sixes In IPL 2022 From Liam Livingstone’s 117m to Jos Buttler’s 107m
1. Liam Livingstone-117m
Punjab Kings (PBKS) Liam Livingstone, making his second appearance in the IPL 2022, tops the list of biggest sixes with a 117-meter towering six. The hard-hitting batter is known for smashing big sixes, and he has so far lived up to his potential in IPL 2022. Livingstone smacked four sixes in a 27-ball 64 against Gujarat Titans (GT) in the early part of the season, including a monster blow-off premier Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami. It was a length delivery, and Livingstone swung his bat with ease to clear the mid-wicket region. To go along with his useful bowling contributions, the 28-year-old is Punjab Kings’ second-highest run-getter this season with 385 runs at a destructive strike rate of 180.75 (the highest for players with over 300 runs). Shikhar Dhawan is the team’s leading run-scorer, having contributed 402 runs at a strike rate of 122.94.
2. Dewald Brevis- 112m
Dewald Brevis was acquired by the Mumbai Indians in the 2022 Indian Premier League auction in February 2022. He is also known as ‘Baby AB’ due to his similarity to AB de Villiers on the field. Dewald Brevis smashed four sixes in a row against proven India international Rahul Chahar, a young South African batting gun at the time, the longest one being 112 meters, which was the second-longest six hit in the tournament at the time. The 18-year-old young batter went down on his knees to hit the fourth pitch of the inning for a massive six over the wide long-on fielder. Brevis left a lasting impression despite playing only six matches, scoring 124 runs at a healthy strike rate of 155.
3. Liam Livingstone- 108m
Liam Livingstone is a right-handed opening batsman and occasional spin bowler who can bowl both right-arm leg and off-spin. In IPL 2022, Punjab Kings (PBKS) bought him for INR 11.5 crore and he smashed a sensational 108-meter six against promising Chennai Super Kings (CSK) left-arm seamer Mukesh Choudhary. The young fast bowler bowled a length delivery, and Livingstone pounced with a big lateral loading over mid-wicket.
The PBKS middle-order batter scored 26 runs off the same over to get Punjab’s innings started. Livingstone made a quickfire 60 off 32 deliveries in a match-winning performance in which he also took two wickets and as many catches, particularly liking the inexperienced Mukesh Choudhary. Overall, the aggressive Liam Livingstone has finally made his mark on the big stage, justifying PBKS’s faith by hitting 29 sixes this edition, many of them over 100m. He is currently second in the list of most sixes hit by a batter (29) after Jos Buttler (37) and third with Andre Russell (28).
4. Nicholas Pooran- 108m
He is a Trinidadian cricketer who represents the West Indies in international matches and Trinidad and Tobago in West Indian domestic matches. The West Indian is known as an explosive batsman who has amassed impressive numbers in T20 leagues around the world. Pooran played seven games for Punjab Kings in his first IPL season, scoring 168 runs. In 2020, he became an important member of the PBKS squad, scoring 353 runs with a high score of 77. He did not have the best season in 2021, but his hard-hitting abilities cannot be underestimated. Nicholas Pooran is the complete package for T20 cricket, especially with his exceptional fielding abilities.
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will have high expectations from this Trinidadian dasher, who was their most expensive purchase in the 2022 TATA IPL Auction. Nicholas Pooran, the most recent addition to the list, was at his destructive best while chasing a steep target against Delhi Capitals (DC) in a boundary six-laden innings of 62 that included a 108-meter monster six-off star fast bowler Anrich Nortje. The tall and lanky Proteas pacer bowled a length delivery to a well-positioned Nicholas Pooran, who smashed it to the boundary. The southpaw hit the ball over the deep mid-wicket fielder and it landed on the second tier. This season, the newly appointed West Indies white-ball captain has been in scintillating form. The 26-year-old cricketer has finished some crucial SRH run chases, averaging 52.2 and striking at an impressive 147.46, including two half-centuries.
5. Jos Buttler- 107m
Jos Buttler is now the leading run-getter for RR in a single season of the IPL. Buttler has beamed through the IPL 2022 like no other batter, scoring runs at willpower. This season, he has 625 runs, including three centuries and three half-centuries. He has a strike rate of 149.88 and an average of 56.82. KL Rahul of the Lucknow Super Giants comes in second with 459 runs. To no one’s surprise, the current IPL season’s “Orange Cap” winner is also on this list. The English wicket-keeper batsman sent a 107-meter six off Delhi Capitals’ (DC), Shardul Thakur while scoring the highest individual score of the season of 116.
Jos Buttler hit nine sixes in his 65-ball innings, which proved crucial in a high-scoring thriller in which both teams crossed 200 runs, allowing Rajasthan Royals to barely win. This is also the joint-highest number of sixes hit by a batter in an innings in IPL 2022. Buttler has had a prolific season, amassing 625 runs, including three centuries and three fifties.
