Biggest Six: Most of the giants could not score more runs this time around in the T20 World Cup 2021. But, some new players have shown their bat power and proved their uniqueness.
Saturday, November 6 is a very special day in the T20 World Cup 2021. In this rain of sixes, the longest six record was broken twice in just a few hours. The record for longest sixes in the presence of power hitters such as Chris Gayle, Jose Butler, Andre Russell, Glenn Maxwell and Asif Ali was set by England middle order batsman Liam Livingston, who played in the last group-match against South Africa. It rained sixes.
Kavingo Rabada hit three sixes in a row in the 16th over of the innings. The first six of these went 112 meters. It set a record for the biggest six in a tournament.
Andre Russell, who set the record on Saturday just hours before the Livingston attack, broke the Livingston record. Russell hit a record 111-meter six off Mitchell Starc’s fifth ball in the 20th over against Australia.
Before the Livingston and Russell records, the longest six in the T20 World Cup 2021 was named after young Afghan batsman Najibullah Zadran. Zadran hit a huge 103m six against Scotland in the first match of Group 2 against Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, England opener Jose Butler and New Zealand opener Martin Guptill have also been added to the list. Both hit 102m long sixes. Butler played this huge shot in his stormy innings against Australia. Guptill, however, sent the ball too far against Scotland.
