Amidst fears of flat pitches being the norm in the World Cup, the mega-event in England and Wales has experienced quite a few low-scoring contests. Despite the largely even battle between bat and ball, there were some unforgettable lusty blows from the bats of some players that went deep into the stands.
Unsurprisingly, the Caribbean players rule the list of the longest sixes in the World Cup so far as they most famously possess the most depth in batting firepower. Universe Boss Chris Gayle expectedly features in the list when his brutal hit against Matt Henry almost touched the 100-meter mark.
Bangladesh’s Mahmudullah is the most startling addition in the esteemed list since the right-hander is not known for his power hitting skills but he middled a stupendous six against Pat Cummins. The longest maximum – 105-meter six – belongs to none other than West Indies captain Jason Holder, who punished the Bangladesh bowlers with his stunning hits.
