The sight of watching a batsman stepping out and hitting the ball straight over the sightscreen is a possibility on most occasions in T20 cricket.
The likes of Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya have smashed the white leather at will and on-demand during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. While Samson (26) is second and Pandya (25) is third in the list of batsmen with most sixes in the recently concluded IPL, fans wonder, which are the names at the top if clubbed season-wise.
Sanath Jayasuriya (31 sixes) and Adam Gilchrist (29 sixes) were at the numero uno position in the first two editions of the IPL.
