With the majority of the matches being utterly one-sided from the beginning, this tournament has been unlike any other this year. The match between India and South Africa yesterday is the most recent example of the overabundance of failures in the second innings and too many runs in the first that we have seen. With all teams finishing eight of the nine group-stage games, this competition is rife with runs.
Team India came out to be the best side in this World Cup with zero defeats till now where all the other teams have lost two or more. Indian top order has been up to the mark in producing match-winning knocks which has paid off well.
We brought to you the latest updated ICC World Cup 2023 Most Sixes Rankings and let’s check who are the top 5 six hitters in this World Cup till now.
Most Sixes in ICC World Cup 2023
1- Rohit Sharma- 22 Sixes
Rohit has smoked 22 sixes and 50 fours in 8 matches which means around 3 sixes and more than 6 boundaries per innings. He is also among the top-5 players with the most runs in the World Cup 2023.
The skipper “Number 45” is leading the Indian team from the front. His ruthless hitting right from the first over has been one of the main reasons for India breaking all the thresholds. He has scored a total of 442 runs in 8 innings at an average of 55 and a strike rate of 122 which is the highest strike rate in the top 10 players with most runs.
2- David Warner- 20 Sixes
The Australian Southpaw David Warner is dealing heavy for his team at the top. He has shown his experience and ability to take the momentum away from the opps. He scored 163(124) vs PAK, 104 (93) vs NED, and 81 (65) vs NZ and smashed 18 sixes in those 3 innings. He failed in the last match against England but is still in the top 5 of the most runs rankings and most sixes rankings.
He is ranked fifth in the most-run rankings of this tournament after Quinton de Kock, Virat Kohli, Rachin, and Rohit. He amassed a total of 428 runs in 7 innings with an average of 61.14.
3- Fakhar Zaman- 18 Sixes
A new entry at the top 5 following some smashing and bashing. Fakhar Zaman of Pakistan was the counter-attacker of Pakistan who were almost at the doorstep of the exit gate. Fakhar’s attacking character and good form have helped him be the savior of the Pakistan team.
Fakhar was dropped off the team after the first match owing to his poor run but he took the place of out-of-form Imam and has played two match-winning knocks. He has smashed a total of 18 sixes in a span of two innings which is quite unbelievable.
4- Quinton de Kock- 18 Sixes
Another left-handed opener on the list. Quinton de Kock took Bangladesh by storm when he smoked 174 runs with the help of 15 fours and 7 sixes. QDK has provided South Africa with a brisk start in many games with ended in a winning cause.
He is also at the top of the most runs tally with 550 runs. He averages 68.75 in the 8 innings of this World Cup. He has a total of 18 sixes and 55 fours(most fours by individual in World Cup 2023) under his belt till now and sits 4th in the most sixes rankings.
3- Heinrich Klaasen- 17 Sixes
Where all the other players in the list are top-order batters, here is an odd entry. Next on the list is Heinrich Klaasen, a powerful batter for the Proteas. The foremost reason why South Africa have been winning matches is the strong middle order, and Heinrich Klaasen is the guy responsible for this.
Any hitter who comes in fifth or sixth at the crease and punches the ball down with such force knows that it is not an easy task. He has smoked a total of 17 sixes and amassed a total of 316 runs.
