The game has come a long way in the last decade. We see a lot more sixes as compared to earlier times. The bats have got better with time and the new rules are tilted in favour of the batters. Thus, we witness a plethora of shots clearing the boundary. In fact, there is some world class batsman who has the skills to clear the ropes with ease.

The likes of MS Dhoni, AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle are clean strikers of the ball and once they time the ball with perfection, it stays hit. In fact, we have seen that the ball has even cleared the stadium on many occasions.

Here are the longest sixes in International cricket:

MS Dhoni is well known for his pyrotechnics. Dhoni has powerful hands and he has the skills the send the ball a long way. The talisman batsman was at his peak when he clobbered Clint McKay towards the long-on region in the Commonwealth Bank series. That massive six was measured to travel a massive distance of 112 meters. India went on to win that match by four wickets and Dhoni added the finishing touches to the run-chase.
