Yuvraj Singh is the only batter to have smashed six sixes in an over in ICC T20 World Cup history. He achieved that feat while playing against the England cricket team in ICC T20 World Cup 2007. After an argument with Andrew Flintoff, Yuvraj destroyed Stuart Broad and hit sixes off all the deliveries he bowled in one over.


AB de Villiers and Jehan Mubarak are two batters to have scored 29 runs in one over. Mubarak accomplished it in 2007 against Kenya’s LN Onyango, while de Villiers wreaked havoc in an over bowled by Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan in the 2016 T20 World Cup.


Chris Gayle holds the fifth spot in this list. He smacked 26 runs off one over bowled by legend Brett Lee in the 2009 T20 World Cup. Meanwhile, Australia’s David Hussey scored 27 runs off an over bowled by Mohammad Sami in the 2010 ICC T20 World Cup Group A match.


It is highly unlikely that Yuvraj Singh’s record for most runs in one over in a T20 World Cup will ever be broken. It will be interesting to see if someone can equal his record.
