Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma created history on Saturday (April 22) during MI’s IPL 2023 match against the Punjab Kings at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The 35-year-old right-handed batter became the first Indian batter to score 250 or more sixes in the cash-rich league. And in the overall list, he is in third place.
|1.||Chris Gayle||KKR, RCB, PBKS||142||4965||357|
|2.||AB de Villiers||Delhi Capitals, RCB||184||5162||251|
|3.||Rohit Sharma||Deccan Chargers, MI||233||6058||250|

In the history of the IPL, only two batters—Chris Gayle and Ab de Villiers—have managed to hit more sixes than Rohit. While Gayle tops the list with 357 maximums in 142 games, De Villiers is at No. 2 with 251 big hits in 184 runs. It’s a matter of time before Rohit breaks De Villiers’ record and reaches the No. 2 position. In the list of Indian batters with the most number of sixes in the IPL, Rohit is followed by MS Dhoni , who has 235 maximums to his name, and Virat Kohli , who occupies the third spot with 229 big hits in 229 IPL matches.
