The game of cricket has come a long way since it evolved as a global sport in the 19th and 20th century. Though red-ball cricket is still prominent among cricket fans, limited over formats like T20 are getting more and more popular these days.

Since the advent of T20 cricket, and especially the Indian Premier League, the cricketing world has seen a lot of innovation in run-scoring as well as high hitting. In fact, the IPL has been the platform for some of the longest sixes in cricket history.

Here’s a look at the top 10 longest sixes in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Who has hit the longest six in the IPL?

The longest six in the IPL came with the bat of Chennai Super Kings’ former batsmen Albie Morkel. In a game against Deccan Chargers in the inaugural edition of the league, Albie Morkel went on to hit a mammoth 125-meter six. The distance travelled by the ball on Pragyan Ojha’s delivery was enough to set the audience in awe.

The likes of Adam Gilchrist, Chris Gayle, Robin Uthappa and Ben Cutting has also smashed some of the longest sixes in IPL history, but none of them has been able to break the 125-meter record till date.
