Most sixes in an innings of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is a tournament packed with power hitting and six-frenzied excitement.  But which batsmen have truly mastered the art of launching the ball over the boundary the most times in a single innings?  Let’s look at the top 3 players with the most sixes in a T20 World Cup match:


Chris Gayle (11 Sixes)

Topping the list is the legendary Chris Gayle, also known as the “Universe Boss.”  Gayle is synonymous with big hitting, and it comes as no surprise that he holds the record for the most sixes in a T20 World Cup innings.  His incredible knock of 11 sixes came against England in 2016, along with 5 fours and a blistering score of 100 runs off just 48 balls.  With a mind-boggling strike rate of over 200, Gayle’s dominance over the bowlers was absolute.


Chris Gayle (10 Sixes)

Chris Gayle doesn’t just hold the top spot, he makes a second appearance on this prestigious list!  This time, his knock of 10 sixes came in 2007 against South Africa.  While he scored slightly more runs in his record-breaking innings, this knock showcased his consistent power hitting ability across multiple World Cup tournaments.


Rilee Rossouw (8 Sixes)

In third place, we have Rilee Rossouw of South Africa.  While he doesn’t quite match Gayle’s sheer number of sixes, his knock of 8 sixes against Bangladesh in 2022 was still a remarkable display of power hitting.  Scoring 109 runs off just 56 balls, Rossouw’s innings helped propel South Africa to a dominant victory.


These three batsmen have cemented their place in T20 World Cup history with their incredible six-hitting abilities.  Their power hitting not only entertains the crowds but also puts immense pressure on the opposing bowlers.  As the T20 World Cup continues to evolve, it will be exciting to see if future players can challenge these records and become the next six-hitting kings of the tournament.
