The inaugural ICC World Test Championship (WTC) will conclude with the final staged between India and New Zealand in Southampton from June 18. Both the teams played top-quality cricket and registered historic victories to make it to the finals for the ultimate crown.
Australia batsman Marnus Labuschagne is the leading run-scorer of the ICC WTC and his teammate Pat Cummins has taken the highest number of wickets (70) so far in the cycle. India’s Ravichandran Ashwin, if selected, will have the opportunity to surpass Cummins as the off-spinner has 67 wickets to his name in the cycle.
Here, we look at which players hit the most sixes in ICC World Test Championship 2019-21:
5. Jos Buttler – 14
Jos Buttler is one of the most fearsome strikers of the cricket ball. A hard-hitting lower-order batsman, Buttler hit 14 sixes in the maiden ICC WTC cycle, where England finished fourth on the table.
Buttler’s best knock came in the Manchester Test against Pakistan last year. Chasing 277 on a two-paced surface, Buttler counter-attacked the visiting bowlers and scored a brisk 75 off 101 balls helping England seal the game, and eventually the series, where he would hit his second Test hundred and confirm his spot in the eleven.
