Aiming to hit more amount of sixes involves immense power-hitting skills and its hardly easy for a lot of batsmen to hit sixes at will. While the growth of the T20 format over the years has made it slightly more comfortable, on a few grounds, it becomes challenging to clear the boundaries. But there are a handful of marvels as of today, who have more sixes than fours.
When taken into account the time T20 internationals were first played, only one or two batsmen would have such statistics, mainly due to long boundaries and seaming wickets. Now that the pitches are slightly easier to bat on and fences being short, more batsmen have joined the list.
We take a look at top five batsmen who have more sixes than fours in T20 international cricket:
5. Colin de Grandhomme – 27 fours, 29 sixes:
New Zealand’s Colin de Grandhomme makes it to the list as well. Colin de Grandhomme has become one of the most reliable all-rounders for New Zealand in the last couple of years with his game tailormade for T20 internationals. Nevertheless, he has been excellent in ODIs and Tests as well.
However, the Harare-born cricketer is most potent when it comes to T20Is. In 36 fixtures in the format, he has smashed 27 fours and 29 sixes, maintaining a strike rate of 143.23. De Grandhomme has also featured in 24 Tests and 42 ODIs, having made his international debut in 2012.
