TOP 5 CONTENDERS TO BREAK THE RECORD OF THE LONGEST SIX

The 14th season of the Indian Premier League has already begun and one match has been played last Friday. The match was played between Virat Kohli’s army and Rohit Sharma’s team in which the Royal Challengers Bangalore won against the last season’s winner Mumbai Indians.

There were some great performances in the match and we will see more in the forthcoming matches of the season.

In the IPL seasons, players have performed very well as compared to their performance in the T20s. Many of the great players have hit the big maximums.

As it is a 20 overs format game, it is important for players to hit maximums if they want to score and many of them did it. We have seen many players hitting the long sixes in the IPL history.
