A captain is the most crucial part of a team as his character sets the image of his team. While most of the team generally opens up the captaincy opportunity for the good batsman, who understands the game in a very better way, nowadays we have seen some captains who are famous for the big-hitting.
Though it is very risky, the modern batsmen still try to go for the sixes as it helps to move the scoreboard quickly and release the pressure for their batting side. Modern captains also follow this strategy and some of them are master in this role.
Here we are talking about the top five captains with most international sixes
AB de Villiers – 135 sixes
Former South African captain AB de Villiers was a great batsman. While the right-handed batsman is an aggressive batsman, he has the incredible ability to play shots and snatch runs from all over the ground. Due to this excellent batting ability, De Villiers has earned the nickname of Mr. 360. Many bowlers have admitted that De Villiers’ dangerous batting destroyed their confidence level.
During his international career (2004-2018), De Villiers led the Proteas team in 124 international matches from 2012 to 2017. The right-handed batsman hit 135 sixes during his tenure as a captain of the South African team. In overall, he hit 328 international sixes – the most number of sixes for a South African batsman.
