Because sixes are so important in 20-over cricket, every hitter strives to smash as many as possible. The same is true in the Pakistan Super League, where hitters attempt to delight their fans as much as possible by hitting sixes. In rare circumstances, the fate of a match is entirely dependent on the innings of a single hitter. More sixes resulted in more runs, which boosted a batter’s strike rate. As a result, any team can post a large total on the board and claim victory in the match. Ben Dunk has the most sixes in one match in PSL history, with twelve.
