Know how record-breaking nature of IPL 2022 season continues as compared to 2018 & 2019 seasons

Indian Premier League 2022 has crossed the 900 sixes mark in the game between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers on Tuesday.

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians are up against each other at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Tuesday. However, both the teams are out of the playoffs race but still fighting to finish higher in the points table. Mathematically, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) can still climb the top 4 positions.

IPL is one of the best cricketing tournaments Indian fans have ever seen. IPL 2022 has crossed 900 sixes which is the most in a season. It is because two new franchises were added namely Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans. Hardik Pandya’s men have hit the least number of sixes in this year’s IPL but the team remains on top and became the first to qualify for the playoffs. 900th six of the season was hit by SRH batter Nicholas Pooran in an ongoing game against Mumbai Indians.

Rajasthan Royals is the team which has the most number of sixes in IPL 2022 as they have got some good power hitters in their squad namely Shimron Hetmyer, skipper Sanju Samson, opening batter Jos Buttler who has three centuries this season so far, and Devdutt Padikkal. Shimron Hetmyer is also in the list of ‘Players with most number of sixes this season.’

Most 6s in an IPL season: 

2022 – 900*

2018 – 872

2019 – 784

As there are still some games to go in Indian Premier League 2022, so it is possible that the fans can witness some more huge hits and it is quite possible that this numbers can go past ‘1000’ towards the end of the season.
