The IPL 2021 kicked off on April 8, 2021, with a bang and the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) pulled off a thriller that went into the wire against the Mumbai Indians (MI). Maxwell’s innings was the talking point as he regained his form in the IPL — and hit a huge 100 meter six during his innings which hit the top of the stadium roof.
The IPL has already been enlightening with the season opener turning out to be a nail-biter and there haven’t been any red signal to the entertainment factor. Over the years, the IPL stars have gone on to hit sixes out of the stadium and it is time to look at the 5 longest sixes in the history of the tournament.
5 Longest Sixes In The History Of The Tournament:
The South African all-rounder Albie Morkel is at the top of the list for the longest sixes hit in the history of IPL. Playing for the Chennai Super Kings, Morkel hit a humungous 125 meter six in the bowling of left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha in the cow corner area.
It was low scoring in the inaugural edition of 2008 and Morkel’s innings of 29 runs in 19 balls took CSK to a respectable total of 144 for the loss of seven wickets. However, the Deccan Charger chased it down in the end with seven wickets in hand and two overs left.
