Most sixes in Test cricket: Will the record of most sixes in Test cricket be broken this year? Actually, England Test team captain Ben Stokes has hit maximum sixes in this format. Ben Stokes has the maximum number of 107 sixes in the Test format. At the same time, Brendon McCullum, the current coach of the England team and former New Zealand captain, has also hit 107 sixes in Test cricket. Ben Stokes has hit 107 sixes in 89 matches, while Brendon McCullum has done this feat in 101 matches. In this way, Ben Stokes will become the batsman with the most sixes in the Test format after hitting just 1 six. Apart from this, former Australian wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist is at number three in the list of batsmen who have hit the most sixes in Test format.
Who are included in the list?
Former Australian wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist has hit 100 sixes in Test format. Whereas Chris Gayle of West Indies and Jacques Kallis of South Africa are at number four and five respectively. Chris Gayle has hit 98 sixes in 103 matches. While Jacques Kallis has hit sixes in 166 matches. Whereas, Virender Sehwag and Brian Lara are next in this list. Both players have said goodbye to cricket.
Will Brendum McCullum’s record be broken this year?
After Ben Stokes, most of the cricketers who hit the most sixes have said goodbye to cricket. Therefore, there is no threat to the record of Ben Stokes from such players, but if we talk about such players who are currently playing cricket, then Tim Southee of New Zealand and David Warner of Australia are on the number. Tim Southee has hit 75 sixes in 90 matches. While David Warner has hit 64 sixes in 101 Test matches. In this way, statistics show that Tim Southee will have to hit 34 sixes to reach Ben Stokes’ record. While David Warner will have to hit 54 sixes to break Ben Stokes’ record. However, in this way we can say that in the year 2023, by hitting Ben Stokes’s record for a six, we will make the record of hitting the most number of sixes.
