In limited-overs cricket, the number of sixes is very crucial as it brings the maximum runs from one ball. In the 2019 ODI World Cup or officially known as the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, a total of 357 sixes were hit which were the third most sixes in a CWC edition.
A total of nine different batsmen managed to hit 10 or more sixes in the 2019 ODI World Cup.
Here we are talking about the top five batsmen with most sixes in the 2019 ODI World Cup.
Chris Gayle (West Indies) – 12 sixes
There is no surprise to see the name of the Caribbean opener Chris Gayle in the list of most sixes in the 2019 ODI World Cup. While it was expectedly his last Cricket World Cup, the left-handed batsman Gayle, who is the only international cricketer to hit 500+ sixes (534 sixes), hit 12 sixes in eight innings of that tournament.
In that tournament, Gayle’s most sixes in an innings were six sixes against New Zealand at Manchester on 22nd June 2019 (In the League Stage match) where he scored 87 runs.
