Dewald Brevis Hits the LONGEST Six in IPL 2022

There have been several big sixes in IPL in the last few years‚ but the one hit by Dewald Brevis is the LONGEST six in IPL history. Brevis is not alone‚ though. Albie Morkel and Adam Gilchrist have also hit sixes of epic proportions. In fact‚ Brevis hit the longest six of the IPL in the same game! Mumbai Indians beat Punjab by 177 runs‚ and that is why Dewald Brevis is the biggest six of all time.

Dewald Brevis hits longest six in IPL 2022

Dewald Brevis hit the LONGEST six in the IPL this season. The Mumbai Indians' opener hit four consecutive sixes against the Punjab Kings. The last six travelled 112 meters‚ making it the longest six in the history of the competition. Dewald also hit two consecutive hundred-metre sixes. The run-scoring rate for Mumbai Indians was just over four per over. Dewald Brevis has already impressed cricket fans around the world after his brilliant innings in the U-19 World Cup earlier this year. His innings was so impressive that he was dubbed 'Baby AB'. The innings wasn't enough to save Mumbai Indians from a fifth successive defeat‚ but he did hit four sixes off Rahul Chahar's ninth over. Bevald Brevis is the 'Baby AB' of IPL 2022. The young South African batsman hit four sixes in a single over against Punjab Kings to score 29 runs. He also hit the longest six in the IPL 2022 season‚ which was 112 meters‚ off Chahar's final over. But despite being hailed with praise‚ he couldn't lead the Mumbai Indians to a win. The 102-metre maximum by Brevis was followed by two straight sixes over long-on. He then played a more expansive six over mid-wicket and scored 49. But he was unsuccessful in reaching his 50-run landmark despite making a sluggish start. And he missed out on the half-century. But what is the best way to mark a career?

Adam Gilchrist has hit biggest six in IPL

Adam Gilchrist has become one of the most iconic figures in Australian cricket‚ and his latest IPL hit has added to his legacy. Playing for Kings XI Punjab‚ Adam Gilchrist hit the longest six by a wicketkeeper in the history of the IPL. He scored 106 runs in his first IPL season‚ and hit a 122 meter six off South African pacer Charl Langeveldt. The innings ended in a 111-run win for Kings XI Punjab. With IPL 2022 now underway‚ it's clear that batsmen are kings of the T20 format. As a result‚ the power-hitting will only improve as the tournament progresses. Here are the players with the most sixes in IPL 2022. While these sixes are not necessarily the most elusive‚ Adam Gilchrist's record-breaking innings will definitely be a memorable one. In 2009‚ Gilchrist was with the Deccan Chargers and Kings XI Punjab and managed to smash the biggest six of all time. The same year‚ Chris Langeveldt scored the highest score in the World Cup semi-final. In IPL 2022‚ he has achieved the record against the same opponent. Robin Uthappa‚ meanwhile‚ is with the Chennai Super Kings and has also played for the Rajasthan Royals and KKR. The first six-hitter in IPL history came in the inaugural edition in 2008. Albie Morkel‚ who played for the Chennai Super Kings‚ blasted a massive six against the Deccan Chargers. Afterwards‚ the ball stuck in the stadium's roof‚ which is the record for the longest six in IPL history. The record for the longest six in IPL history still stands at a whopping 161 yards. Another player with an IPL record for biggest six is Dewald Brevis‚ also known as Baby AB. He hit four sixes in the same innings against the Punjab Kings. This was his biggest IPL six ever. His 124-metre six came off a left-arm spinner. The last two deliveries were hit for sixes by him. But this does not mean that he's the only player who has hit the biggest six in IPL 2022.

Albie Morkel has hit biggest six in IPL

The longest six in IPL history was struck by Albie Morkel‚ a South African cricketer‚ against the Deccan Chargers in the inaugural season of IPL in 2008. The ball stuck on the top cover of the stadium and became the longest six in IPL history. It made the inaugural season of IPL memorable. Earlier‚ Morkel was thought to be the successor of Jacques Kallis‚ but failed to live up to expectations. But after a tumultuous start to his career‚ he went on to play in IPL 2022. The TATA IPL 2022 longest six was scored by Liam Livingstone‚ who was bought for 11.5 crores by the Punjab Kings. He scored 60 runs in 32 balls and hit a strike rate of 187.5. He hit five sixes and a four to claim the title of the IPL's longest six. Albie Morkel still holds the record for the longest six‚ but he did it in 2008. The longest six in IPL history was struck by Albie Morkel‚ a South African bowler-batsman who played for the Chennai Super Kings in 2008. His sixth century was a 125-meter smash off left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha. The strike was so spectacular‚ the entire crowd at the MCG was stunned. A video of Morkel's innings can be viewed here. Adam Gilchrist is the legend of Australian cricket. He is also one of the most famous batsmen in the IPL. His 122-metre-long six against the Deccan Chargers in 2011 is still the longest six ever hit by a wicketkeeper. It remains a record until this day. It isn't easy to match this feat‚ but it certainly makes the game more exciting and memorable. AB de Villiers is the only player to score 50+ sixes twice. He is the second-longest six in IPL history‚ behind Chris Gayle (222 meters). But despite his poor international career‚ he is one of the most successful batsmen in the IPL. Against the Chennai Super Kings in 2010‚ he hit a 120-meter six. The six was a record in the third season of the IPL.

Mumbai Indians beat Punjab by 177 runs

In IPL 2022‚ Baby AB is back with four big sixes in a row. Against Punjab Kings‚ Dewald Brevis struck four sixes off the last over bowled by Rahul Chahar. Brevis' last six measured 112 meters and is the LONGEST six in the competition. It also has the highest gap among all IPL sixes. Mumbai Indians' innings ended in a disaster last night when the franchise lost to the Punjab Kings by 12 runs. Dewald Brevis scored 49 off 25 balls‚ including five sixes. He hit four consecutive deliveries from Rahul Chahar before falling to a superb Odean Smith. The Mumbai Indians are still alive in the competition‚ but it looks like they'll be swept by the Kolkata Knight Riders. Against the Punjab Kings‚ the Mumbai Indians are in for a tough battle. Dewald Brevis blasted four consecutive sixes against Rahul Chahar‚ making it the longest six in IPL 2022. This was not a one-off occurrence‚ but rather a rare occurrence‚ which made the feat more special. There are no other Mumbai Indians players who can match Dewald Brevis' incredible batting performance. The Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to field first. Punjab batted first and scored 198/5 in 20 overs. Mumbai were unable to chase the Punjab total‚ and managed just 186 in 20 overs. It is still unclear if this record will be beaten this year. It would certainly be a great feat for Mumbai Indians!
