New Delhi: A whirlwind match will be played at Bengaluru’s Chinnaswamy Stadium today. The storm will be thrilling for those watching the match, but it can be unnerving for the players, especially the bowlers. Because today, instead of the match between Kolkata and Bangalore, there will be a superhit match of six.
You may be wondering how? So let’s say that of all the sixes hit so far this season, the most sixes have been hit at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Apart from this, the batsmen who have hit the most number of sixes so far this season are also going to take the field together today.
102 sixes have been rained at the Chinnaswamy Stadium so far
After 35 matches played so far in IPL 2023, a total of 531 sixes have been hit, of which 102 sixes have been hit at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. Apart from Chinnaswamy, Narendra Modi Stadium is another such stadium, where 86 sixes have been hit the most.
Now the ground which has the highest number of sixes, if the century of sixes is reached halfway through the tournament, it will be showered with runs. And, something similar will happen today when not one, but three Sixers Kings land together.
Du Plessis, Maxwell and Rinku will be in the field today
These are the three batsmen who have hit the most sixes in IPL 2023 so far. One of them is Rinku Singh of Kolkata Knight Riders and the other two are friends of Virat Kohli namely Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell.
Currently, Faf Duplessis tops the list of most sixes in IPL 2023 with 25 sixes. He is followed by Glenn Maxwell who has 23 sixes to his name. And Rinku Singh is just below both with 17 sixes. This means that in today’s match, RCB is looking heavy on KKR by 2-1.
Who will win the triangular match of sixes?
Anyway, in cricket it is said that what numbers speak is usually true. If Faf Duplessis and Glenn Maxwell are ahead in the race for sixes, it is because of their good form. Faf du Plessis is the highest run-scorer this season after playing the most 7 matches. He has 405 runs to his name.
Not only this, there have been 9 century partnerships so far this season, 5 of which belong to RCB and five to Faf du Plessis. Interestingly, out of these five partnerships, he has shared 3 with Maxwell, who has scored 253 runs in 7 matches.
On the other hand, Rinku Singh’s strength is that he scored a lot of runs in the last 4 overs. It has no match in this regard. He has scored 233 runs after 7 matches, his most runs have come in the last 4 overs. Now when the runs rain at the end, the sixes hit hard. So get ready today to watch the superhit battle of sixes between these 3 batsmen.
