IPL's Top 5 Bowlers Most Vulnerable to Sixes

IPL's Top 5 Bowlers Most Vulnerable to Sixes

The T20 format could be more manageable for bowlers. With batters encouraged to play fearlessly, every opportunity is seized to attack, and the shorter boundaries only compound the challenge for bowlers.

Despite enduring relentless onslaughts, bowlers often emerge victorious against batters. However, there are occasions when they concede too many runs in their pursuit of wickets.

In the Indian Premier League, it's not uncommon for teams to surpass the 200-run mark, which can be quite punishing for bowlers. Moreover, the prevalence of maximum hits in the shortest format of the game adds to the challenge bowlers face.

We've delved into the statistics at Fast Live Line to uncover the top 5 bowlers who have endured the highest number of sixes in IPL history. Let's examine their records.

5. Amit Mishra - 182

Formerly regarded as one of India's finest leg-spinners, Amit Mishra significantly contributed to the Indian cricket team. However, his journey in the Indian Premier League hasn't been without challenges, as he currently ranks fifth for conceding the most sixes in the league's history.

In his IPL career, which has spanned various franchises, including Delhi Daredevils, Deccan Chargers, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi Capitals, and currently Lucknow SuperGiants, the 42-year-old has showcased his cricketing prowess.

In his 161 IPL appearances, he has taken 173 wickets but has also conceded 182 sixes.

4. Ravichandran Ashwin - 189

Ravichandran Ashwin, one of the world's greatest off-spinners, also holds an unwanted record.

Despite being one of India's most successful spinners, Ashwin's statistics in the Indian Premier League don't mirror his success with the national team, as he ranks fourth in conceding the most sixes in the IPL.

Throughout his IPL career, Ashwin has played for various franchises, including Chennai Super Kings, Rising Pune Supergiants, Punjab Kings, and Delhi Capitals. Currently, he plays a vital role in the Rajasthan Royals team.

In his 202 IPL appearances, Ashwin has taken 172 wickets but has also conceded 189 sixes, earning him a spot on this unwanted record list.

3. Ravindra Jadeja - 199

Ravindra Jadeja, the premier left-arm spinner of the Chennai Super Kings, often faces the brunt of aggressive batting. Despite being a reliable bowler for CSK, he has been targeted by numerous batters, resulting in him conceding a considerable number of sixes. As a result, he occupies the third spot on the list of bowlers who have conceded the most sixes in the IPL.

The all-rounder has been a vital asset for the CSK team across all facets of the game. As a bowler, the left-arm spinner has clinched 155 wickets in 202 innings. However, he has also been on the receiving end of aggressive batting, conceding 199 hits into the crowd, landing him on this unwanted record.

2. Yuzvendra Chahal - 200

Yuzvendra Chahal, the primary bowler of the Indian Premier League, is the leading wicket-taker in the IPL.

Despite his effectiveness as a wrist-spinner, Yuzvendra Chahal has encountered instances where he conceded a significant number of runs and massive hits. This places him second on the list of bowlers, with the most sixes conceded in the IPL.

The leg-spinner began his IPL journey with the Mumbai Indians before becoming a key player for the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

After joining the Rajasthan Royals a couple of seasons ago, Yuzvendra Chahal quickly made his presence felt. Despite claiming an impressive 198 wickets in just 150 innings, he has also been on the receiving end of 200 sixes in the league thus far.

1. Piyush Chawla - 211

Piyush Chawla, one of the top wicket-takers in the IPL, has showcased his talent and skill in the Indian Premier League, often being underrated despite his impressive performances.

Like Chahal, Chawla has been vulnerable to conceding numerous runs despite his proficiency in the league, landing him at the top of the list for conceding the most sixes.

Throughout his IPL career, Chawla has showcased his skills while representing various teams, including Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians, and Chennai Super Kings. With 181 wickets in 185 matches, he has had notable success, particularly shining in the 2023 season.

However, in terms of sixes conceded, his deliveries have soared over the ropes a staggering 211 times, marking the highest number in the history of the IPL.
