Which are the five longest sixes in the history of IPL?


Physical Education Trainer | Posted

IPL has witnessed many huge sixes that fascinated crowd and commentators at the same time. Few sixes are very longest that may have landed on the other planet :)

5. Ross Taylor (119m)

The Kiwi right-handed batsman took charge on one such delivery when he smashed a 119m long six against Chennai Super Kings.

4. Robin Uthappa (120m)

Robin Uthappa smashed one of the longest sixes in IPL history when he lashed out a 120m six off a length delivery from CSK’s Dwayne Bravo.

3. Adam Gilchrist (122m)

It is no wonder that this Aussie wicket keeper/batsman features in this elite list of longest six. One of the finest and aggressive openers of all time, Gilchrist brutally hit a monstrous 122m long six over the deep midwicket against RCB.

2. Praveen Kumar (124m)

Don't get surprised Praveen Kumar who has the reputation of a swing bowler brought himself into this list by hitting a massive 124 m long six while batting down the order for KXIP. 

1. Albie Morkel (125m)

The South African al-rounder while playing for CSK, took charge on Pragyan Ojha when he slogged it over deep midwicket for the longest six ever in IPL history- 125 meters. The record was set in the inaugural season and is yet to be broken.

Here is the video that shows all five monstrous sixes:
