Top 3 IPL Finishers with the Most Sixes in the 20th Over

The final over of an IPL match is often a tense affair, with teams needing quick runs. In this high-pressure situation, some batsmen thrive under the spotlight. These are the finishers, who can clear the boundary with ease and even snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

 

This article takes a look at the top 3 IPL batsmen with the most sixes in the crucial 20th over:

 

MS Dhoni (61 Sixes)

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, fondly known as “Captain Cool,” sits on top of the mountain when it comes to last-over heroics in the IPL. With a staggering 61 sixes in 303 balls to his name in the final over, Dhoni has been the ultimate finisher for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). His ability to stay calm under pressure and find the boundary when needed has saved CSK from countless defeats.

Dhoni’s mastery extends beyond sixes; he also holds the record for most runs scored in the final over of IPL matches.

 

Kieron Pollard (33 Sixes)

The big-hitting all-rounder, Kieron Pollard, stands second in the list with 33 sixes in 189 balls in the 20th over. Playing for the Mumbai Indians (MI), Pollard has used his brute force and clean hitting, which has been instrumental in MI’s many close victories throughout the IPL seasons to take his team over the line on numerous occasions. His strike rate of 152.70 in the final over showcases his fearlessness and ability to score quickly.

He’s a constant threat with the bat in hand, and his ability to find the boundary in the final over keeps the opposition on their toes.

 

Ravindra Jadeja (29 Sixes)

Sir Ravindra Jadeja might surprise some on this list, but the all-rounder from CSK has proven himself as a dependable finisher with 29 sixes in 171 balls in the 20th over. While Dhoni might be the main finisher for CSK, Jadeja has stepped up in crucial moments, showcasing his ability to hit big when the team needs it the most.

Interestingly, Jadeja holds a unique record. He’s the only batsman to hit five sixes in the final IPL over of an innings. This showcases his ability to take bowlers apart when on song.

 

The players mentioned above have mastered this art, turning the final over into their personal stage.  Their power-hitting, combined with their ability to stay calm under pressure, makes them invaluable assets to their teams. As the IPL continues to evolve, we can expect to see new young talents emerge and challenge these veterans for the title of “King of the Last Over.”
