With the introduction of T20 cricket in recent years, it has been demonstrated that nothing is impossibly difficult in the history of cricket. The game of cricket today has a tonne of really powerful players who are capable of regularly striking the ball out of the ground. Some people have specialized in the skill of hitting sixes because the batsman needs to time the ball and have enough force to easily clear the boundaries.
Many batsmen, like Chris Gayle and Yuvraj Singh, have the capacity to blast massive sixes out of the stadium. Even in the first World T20, which ignited interest in the game’s then-newest format, Yuvraj blasted Stuart Broad out of the ground on six consecutive deliveries. The more sixes there are in the game, the more entertained the crowd is.

Before cricket began keeping detailed statistics, it was said that English player Albert Trott had hit Monty Noble out of the park during a Test match against Australia to score the longest six in the sport’s history. Nearly 120–125 meters had been covered by the ball. When Trott smashed the ball over the Lord’s pavilion, it wasn’t even the 20th century; it was back in 1899.
