Most sixes in T20 World Cup

Throughout the world, T20 cricket is one of the most popular and entertaining formats of the game. In the shortest format of the game, power-hitting batters make this an exciting game because they hit the ball outside the boundaries of the field. Batsman like Yuvraj Singh struck six sixes in one over of Stuart Broad during the inaugural season of the T20 World Cup, which is a record for a batsman at this level of play at the international level. This was the first time a batsman had achieved such a feat at the international level. In the T20 World Cup, Yuvraj Singh is the only batsman to have reached this milestone.
