IPL Longest Six

The record for longest six in the IPL was set by Albie Morkel while playing for Chennai Super Kings in the inaugural IPL edition and it still stands today. Albie's humongous strike of 125 m is the current IPL Longest six. Second in the table is the 122 m long monster by the former Australian opener, Adam Gilchrist which he struck in 2011 for Kings XI Punjab.

Robin Uthappa's 120 m six stands third in the tally. Unsurprisingly India's treasured T20 specialist Yuvraj Singh's 119 m six which he hit in 2009 stands tall in the fourth place. Yuvraj Singh and Robin Uthappa are the only Indians in the list. The fifth longest six is by Ben Cutting and it has measured a mammoth 117 m.

The IPL tournament is an exhibition of brilliant batting and skillful bowling. But undoubtedly the most exciting aspect of T20 cricket is the abundance of sixes which we get to see during the matches. IPL too has seen its fair share of dynamite hitting over the years and has recorded some of the longest sixes in the history of T20 cricket.
