The sixth edition of the Indian Premier League was held between April 3, 2013 and May 26, 2013. A total of 76 matches were played between 9 teams with each team playing against each other at least twice.
Chennai Super Kings topped the table with Mumbai Indians finishing second and Rajasthan Royals third. The final was played between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, with the former crowned champions for the first time.
There were some very impressive performances with the bat as well as the ball, but let us take a look at most sixes from each team.
9. Yusuf Pathan: Kolkata Knight Riders (14 sixes)
2013 was a forgettable year for Kolkata Knight Riders as they finished the year at number 7 in the points table and hardly posed any threat for the opposition. Coming into the tournament as the defending champions, fans had high hopes from them.
However, regular injuries and lack of consistency from their core group of players ensured their early exit from the league. One of the few players, who enjoyed a good season from KKR's camp was Yusuf Pathan. Coming in as a finisher at the latter part of the innings, Pathan had the complete authority to go after the bowlers and to get those crucial runs during the death overs.
He hit a total of 14 sixes in the entire tournament, which may not sound much, but considering the number of balls he faced at the death overs, it is pretty impressive. Some of those hits helped his team in getting away with close victories and to stay in the tournament as a title contender for a bit longer.
8. David Warner: Delhi Daredevils (14 Sixes)
Like KKR, Delhi Daredevils was another team that could not replicate the heroics of the previous year as they finished the season at the bottom of the points table. Players like Kevin Pietersen, Mahela Jayawardene and Virender Sehwag struggled with the form consistently and it gave young players like David Warner an added responsibility, who tried to fulfil it to a certain extent.
David Warner tried his best to score those crucial runs at the start of the innings after the failure of the top order on multiple occasions. He hit a total of 14 sixes in the entire tournament and took a special liking to Mumbai Indian and Pune Warriors India against whom he scored 4 sixes each in one inning.
