Cricketers hitting a six in Test cricket was a rarity not long ago. They were more into building an innings and hen batting deep and long to notch up a good score and help the team post a good score in the process. However, since the last decade, Test cricket has become enthralling and entertaining. The birth of T20 cricket has a lot to do in batsmen taking a bit more risk to score runs in the longest format of the game too. Thus we get to see a lot more sixes hit in Test cricket in the modern game.
In this article, we list down the names of active cricketers with most sixes in Test cricket. Interestingly, this list does not have names like Chris Gayle, Brendon McCullum, and Virender Sehwag who themselves played over 100 Tests each.
Most Sixes In Tests Among Active Cricketers
Ben Stokes- 79
Stokes leads the list of cricketers with 79 sies to his name. He is one of the few all-rounders who plays all formats for his team and is equally productive in the formats. One of his best Test innings came against Australia in Headingly where he helped them win the game scoring an unbeaten 135 helping England chase down 362 in the fourth innings in the 2019 Ashes series. He scored the last 70 odd runs with Jack Leach scoring 1 off 17 balls in a matchwinning partnership.
