Ever since the emergence of T20 cricket, the game has changed a lot. Batsmen have become all the more aggressive, and this shows in ODI and Test cricket as well. Hitting sixes has become a trend in which various batter excel nowadays because the game demands it.
While accelerating the innings is possible by hitting boundaries and running smartly between the wickets, the ability to hit big shots over the fence gives the team a big momentum boost, and obviously, it gives the fans the thrills which has nowadays become synonymous with limited-overs formats.
While in ODI cricket history, there have been some batsmen who’ve created records by hitting most sixes in the format, there are some others, who failed to hit a single six despite playing a plethora of matches in their careers.
Here are five batsmen who retired without hitting a single six in their ODI careers:
5) Callum Ferguson
Callum Ferguson last played an ODI for Australia more than nine years ago, and won’t be in contention for selection any time soon.
Since his debut in 2009, the 35-year-old has only played 30 ODI matches, scoring 663 runs at an average of 41.43, including five fifties.
Ferguson’s stats might come across as that of a slow batsman, but that’s not the case, he has a strike rate of 85.
But despite this, the right-handed middle-order batter doesn’t have a single six to show for his exploits.
