IPL 2021: How the total number of sixes in IPL surged over the past few seasons- The world’s richest T20 leagues, IPL is a game dominated by batsmen. The tournament is a run-fest for the batsmen where they take on bowlers to hit massive sixes out of the park. The bowlers try everything from bowling yorkers, bouncers, knuckle-balls but it’s still the batsmen who get the better of the bowler for a majority of the time. Since the inaugural season of IPL, the number of sixes in the tournament is on a rise. The most number of sixes in IPL were scored during the last season while the fewer number of biggies were hit in the second season of the cash-rich league. Take a look at the complete stats below.
