Next two in the list are Yusuf Pathan and Yuvraj Singh. Other two players to have hit more than 100 sixes are MS Dhoni (109) and Virender Sehwag (103). With the all controversy happening between Yuvraj Singh and Dhoni, it will crucial to see who ends the tournament with more sixes. There is nothing both these need to prove to the world. It just the hype that keeps the fans interested and players going. 

 With a lot of big hits expected to happen in the tournament, there is a big chance that there might be a new face in the list aprt from the Top 7. Closest are Uthappa from KKR and and Shane Watson, the captain of Rajasthan Royals team.
