Top 10 Six Hitters In T20 Internationals

To find out the most dangerous batsmen in T20 cricket, we considered all the batsmen who had a chance of coming in the top 10 based on our criteria. We then judged the batsmen who qualified on the basis of four criteria to arrive at the final top 10 six hitters in T20Is. It is to be noted that we have mentioned only the final 10 batsmen in all the criteria to make things uncomplicated.

The Trend Setter (TS) is the batsmen who does the best in a criteria with certain prerequisites. It is not necessary that he is ranked among the top 10. However, his rating is taking as the benchmark. If a batsman does better than the TS, he gets the max points in the criteria but others are not judged based on his rating.

It must be noted that Top Teams are the best teams according to Win/Loss ratio in a decade. Wherever applicable, performances against them are considered only if they fall in the time period when they were among the top nations.

All ratings are based on some basis. Our rating favours batsmen who have scored more runs at a high average and a good strike rate. Thus runs scored, average and strike rate are the most important criteria. So, without further ado, lets find out who are the most dangerous batsmen in T20 Internationals.


This criteria gives points for the total number of sixes scored in your overall career.

Note: To be a TS in Prolific, the batsman should have scored the maximum sixes.

This criteria gives points for the number of sixes hit per inning (SPI). To make the rating more interesting, we also found out the SPI of a batsman against top oppositions. The Consistent Rating is a combination of your overall SPI and againt top oppostions. Both the ratings are out of 150.00 points.

Note: To be a TS in Consistent, the batsman should have the highest Sixes Per Inn with 50 or more sixes in career. For Top Teams, this is reduced to 30 sixes

In this criteria, points are given for the number of balls a batsman takes to hit a six (BPS). The lower the BPS, the better the rating. Like in the previous criteria, we have divided this criteria into overall and top teams.

Note: To be a TS in Dominant, the batsman should have the lowest Balls Per Six with 50 or more sixes in career. For Top Teams, this is reduced to 30 sixes.
