In the ODI or T20I cricket, the number of sixes is very crucial as it always helps to move the scoreboard in the fastest way. During the 2007 ODI World Cup (official name was ICC Cricket World Cup 2007), the batsmen hit a total of 373 sixes.
In the 2007 ODI World Cup, while the champions Australia hit the most number of sixes (67 sixes), the semi-finalists South Africa were the only other team to hit 50 or more sixes (51 sixes).
Here we are talking about the top five most six hitters in the 2007 ODI World Cup.
