How would you sum up a tailor-made IPL knock? A fair amount of running, cheeky twos, some lusty drives, and of course lots of towering sixes.

What we don’t see often is the maximum count being more than those of the boundaries and well, some gentlemen were able to pull off this legendary feat in a state where they completely thrashed the bowlers with their swing of the bat.

Today, we bring you the list of ‘Most sixes by a batsman in an innings in IPL history. Some of the biggest names in the business feature in the list and their stats will surely leave you stunned. So let’s get in and see who took a toll on that white cricket ball and sent it right to the fans sitting in the stadium!

At the first spot, we have the Universe Boss himself Chris Gayle, who’s record breaking innings of 175* in 2013 against Pune Warriors India took the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore to storm. In his blistering knock, he smashed 17 sixes! Yes, you read that right, seven-teen!

Next up is a legendary white-ball player, Brendon McCullum. This score of 158 came in the first-ever match of the IPL way back in 2008 where the Kiwi smoked RCB’s bowlers for 13 massive blows into the stands. This innings still remains as one of the greatest of all time in the history of the league!

Surprised to see Gayle again!? Well, he’s 4 times in this list and that’s enough to say about the magnitude of the sheer power that is stored inside the West Indian batter. He notched 128* against the Delhi Capitals in the 2012 season where sent the ball sailing 13 times in Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium.
