He also struck eight sixes against Pune Warriors in the league stage fixture at Bengaluru. It was an incredible IPL campaign for the legendary cricketer, who also won the Orange Cap that season.

Andre Russell (52 Sixes, IPL 2019 Season):

Russell knows no fear. He is one of the clean strikers of the ball and has lit up the IPL ever since he joined Kolkata Knight Riders. The 2019 season remains one of his most destructive campaigns with the bat, as he struck 52 sixes in 13 innings. Russell thrashed Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians bowlers at Eden Gardens. It was his best season for his franchise, scoring 510 runs at a strike rate of 204.81.

Chris Gayle (51 Sixes, IPL 2013 Season)

Gayle is the only batter to have crossed 50-plus sixes in two seasons. The 2013 season was even more special because it was when he made two records, which are yet to be broken. The ‘Universe Boss’ made a fantastic 175* against Pune Warriors. On his way to the record-breaking knock, he smashed 17 sixes. It remains the highest number in IPL history. He also hit nine sixes against Kolkata Knight Riders in the same season.

Jos Buttler (45 Sixes, IPL 2022 Season)

Buttler was at his destructive best in the IPL 2022 season. The Rajasthan Royals opening batter registered 45 sixes in the tournament. The Englishman hit nine sixes against Delhi Capitals at Wankhede and gave thrashing to Royal Challengers Bangalore, Mumbai Indians, and Kolkata Knight bowlers. Unsurprisingly, Buttler took home the Orange Cap that season. 

Chris Gayle (44 Sixes, IPL 2011 Season)

Gayle, representing Royal Challengers Bangalore, piled misery on Kings XI Punjab bowling attack in Bengaluru with nine sixes in the IPL 2011 edition. It was a terrific batting display from the West Indian, who finished the season with 44 sixes. The fans at Eden Gardens, too, witnessed some sensational hitting from Gayle in that season. Against KKR, the champion cricketer hit seven sixes on his way to a maiden IPL hundred.
