IPL 2024 shatters record of most sixes hit in single edition with more matches to go

In the last few years, the T20 format has become a batter's game with bowlers' plans revolving around how to control the batters from scoring runs at an exponential speed. As a result, the six-hitting has increased too, with batters wildly swinging the willow in almost every ball.

The Indian Premier League 2024 is moving toward its business end. With games coming thick and fast and teams battling out for a top-4 spot, the tournament is expected to become more intense as it progresses. Moreover, the IPL 2024 has seen many records being shattered. One of the most obvious records tumbled on Tuesday when Delhi Capitals took Lucknow Super Giants: Most sixes in a single IPL season. Before the match, most sixes in a single IPL season was 1124 in 2023. However, that record was broken on Tuesday with still quite a few matches to go in the group stage.
