Most sixes at a venue in T20s

The shortest format of the game has given the license to the batters to look for the most rewarding shots in the game without thinking about the repercussions of departing cheaply. Fans have been enthralled by some swashbuckling power-hitting over the years, with a selected group of batters taking a liking to certain venues. On that note, we list the batters who have hit the most sixes at a particular venue in the shortest format of the game.

120 – AB de Villiers – M Chinnaswamy, India

Former South African cricketer AB de Villiers wowed fans in the Indian Premier League for more than a decade with his astonishing stroke-making abilities. Nicknamed ‘Mr. 360’, the former Royal Challengers Bangalore was at his supreme best during his tenure for the Bangalore-based franchise. Some of his most memorable performances in the tournament came on RCB’s home ground M Chinnaswamy where he smashed 120 sixes.

123 – Virat Kohli – M Chinnaswamy, India

It is no surprise that former Indian skipper Virat Kohli finds himself on this list. The former RCB skipper, who has represented the Bangalore-based franchise for the entirety of his IPL career, is the outright leading run scorer in the history of the competition. He has played some incredible innings at his home turf of Chinnaswamy, smashing 123 sixes at the venue. He is more than likely to his tally in the ongoing 16th edition of the tournament.

138 & 151 – Chris Gayle – Shere Bangla Stadium and M Chinnaswamy

Former Windies opener Chris Gayle had to be at the top of this list, given his astonishing power-hitting abilities. The towering opening batter who murdered the bowlers on a daily basis in the shortest format of the game holds incredible six-hitting records at two renowned venues in world cricket. The first is Bangladesh’s Shere Bangla Stadium where the batter has accumulated 138 sixes, and the second is Bangalore’s Chinnaswamy, where Gayle has smashed a mind-boggling 151 maximums.
