Despite showing flashes of his brilliance, Shimron Hetmyer had a mediocre tournament, if not poor. However, he played quite a few breathtaking shots in the World Cup. In the game against Bangladesh, the 22-year-old flashing left-hander scored a 26-ball 50 and his knock included three big sixes.

One of his sixes off off-spinner Mosaddek Hossain went over mid-wicket for 104 meters. Though West Indies lost the game by seven wickets, Hetmyer played a scintillating innings.


#1 Jason Holder, 105 meters

West Indies captain and all-rounder Jason Holder has struck the biggest six of the 2019 Cricket World Cup. In the game against Bangladesh, Holder played a brilliant cameo (33 off 15 balls) to take his team to 321 for 8 in 50 overs.

Despite setting a huge target, West Indies lost the game in 41.3 overs as Bangladesh chased the target with ease. The game produced 17 sixes and some of them were huge ones. The 27-year-old hammered Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza over wide long-on for a gigantic 105-meter six.
