World Cup 2019: 5 biggest sixes of the tournament
- The list features some of the biggest hitters of the game.
#4 Mahmudullah, 98 meters
Bangladesh had a good World Cup campaign. Though they failed to qualify for the semi-finals, they played some exceptional cricket throughout the tournament. Bangladesh lost to Australia in a high-scoring game where more than 700 runs were scored on the day.
During the chase, Mahmudullah played a vital inning of 69 and during the knock, he slog-swept Pat Cummins’ slow ball for a huge six over deep mid-wicket. The ball travelled 98 meters into the crowd for a huge six.
#3 Andre Russell, 103 meters
The Caribbean star is known for hitting huge sixes. Andre Russell demolished bowlers in IPL 2019 and came into the tournament in a great form. Russell had a below-par tournament with the bat and his presence at the 2019 World Cup was curtailed because of an injury. The strong all-rounder played only four games in the tournament.
In the game against Australia at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, Russell hit Adam Zampa for a 103-meter six over the long-on boundary. However, he failed to convert his good start, only managing 15 off 10 balls. West Indies lost the game by 15 runs.
