5 All-Time Longest Six Hitter Of Indian Premier League
Morkel is on the 1st number for hitting longest sixes in IPL. He hits 125 meters long six. The South African allrounder while playing for CSK, took charge on Pragyan Ojha when he slogged it over deep midwicket for the longest six ever in IPL history- 125 meters. The record was set in the inaugural season and is yet to be broken.
Surprise surprise! Praveen Kumar is at the second spot for a six which traveled 124m against the bowling of Yusuf Pathan in IPL 2008.
Promoted up the order, Praveen got under the ball and smashed it with sheer power high over the long-on boundary. The ball just missed the roof of the Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru. Yusuf Pathan bowled a gentle off-spinner and the Uttar Pradesh cricketer dismissed it from his sights with brute force.
He hit two more sixes in the same game against the legendary Shane Warne, but that was not enough to lead Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to a victory over the Rajasthan Royals in their home turf.
That was the beautiful description of Adam Gilchrist’s massive six against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in 2011, which traveled 122m in Dharamshala, which was a combination of exquisite timing and brute force. It sure would have found its way down the hill!
A slower ball from Charl Langeveldt deserved the treatment from the Aussie southpaw, who got into position very early and flicked it way over midwicket. Langeveldt was left watching the sky, but that was a very poor ball to bowl at someone like Gilchrist.
Robin Uthappa hit a monstrous six with ease at the Wankhede stadium in IPL 2010. The poor bowler who was on the receiving end was Dwayne Bravo, considered as one of the best death bowlers. But that delivery to Uthappa was so poor that the Karnataka cricketer lifted it over long on for a huge six.
It was a straight length ball on the stumps to a set batsman and it deservingly disappeared into the crowd. It brought huge cheers from the RCB dug out who later went on to win the match with ease. It sure did excite Danny Morrison in the commentary box too.
