Any batter in 20-over cricket aims to hit as many sixes as possible, given sixes are vital to the game’s result. The same case is with the Pakistan Super League, in which batters try to entertain their fans through the biggest sixes as much as possible. In some cases, the final outcome of a match relies entirely on the innings of a single batter. More sixes led to more runs that improved a strike rate of a batter. Hence, any team posts a big total on the board and puts themselves in a victory position in the match. In PSL, Ben Dunk hits the most sixes in an inning, with the number being 12 in PSL history.
