Butler hit most sixes this season

Jos Buttler of England is at the forefront of hitting sixes this season. He has hit 37 sixes in 14 matches. At the same time, Liam Livingstone has hit 34 sixes. In this list, Andre Russell is third with 32 sixes, KL Rahul is fourth with 25 sixes and Rovman Powell is fifth with 22 sixes. However, now Russell, Livingstone and Powell have no matches to play. In such a situation, the record of most sixes is likely to remain in Butler's name, because next available batsman Rahul is far behind him.
