Watch: Nicholas Pooran, Jofra Archer, MS Dhoni and Sanju Samson hit the fix biggest sixes in IPL 2020. All shots travelled more than 100m.

17 batsmen slapped 15 or more sixes in the tournament, with ten players breach the 20-mark. While all of those shots counted for just six runs individually, a few of them were big enough to be worth double that.

Nine batsmen slammed sixes that were measured at 100m or more in IPL 2020. Punjab’s Nicolas Pooran features in the list twice, while Rajasthan Royals have two players in the mix in the form of Sanju Samson and Jofra Archer. MS Dhoni, who is the Indian with the most sixes in the tournament’s history, also makes it to the top five.


Let us take a look at the five biggest sixes from IPL 2020:

Nicholas Pooran 106m

Two of the biggest sixes of the season were slammed by Nicholas Pooran in his incredible knock of 77 off 37 for Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He registered five boundaries and seven sixes in the innings, playing an extraordinary knock in a losing cause.
