The cricket fraternity has seen countless battles between the batters and the bowlers against the run of play. When the batters play the game with intent, it is important for the bowlers to find an alternate route to keep the batters in check. If that isn’t the case, then chances are high that they would get belted for maximums.
The bowlers who vary their pace and bowl at different lines and lengths tend to be more successful than the bowlers who don’t. Even a slight misjudgement or miscalculation could be costly in competitive cricket. The bowlers who fail to live up to their reputation have paid the price.
On the same note, let’s take a glimpse at the four bowlers who conceded the most sixes in T20Is this year.
1. Arshdeep Singh
Arshdeep Singh operates as a left-arm fast-medium bowler for the Indian cricket team. Like any bowler, he often faces challenges related to consistency in line and length. Maintaining accuracy and avoiding loose deliveries are important in preventing runs and Arshdeep needs to pick up lessons. However, with so many years of cricket left in him, we are certain that he will become a better bowler in the future. He comes first on the list as he conceded the most sixes (27 sixes) in the ongoing calendar year.

2. Yuzvendra Chahal
Yuzvendra Chahal is one of the most experienced spinners in international cricket. The experienced leggie is known for his potential to bowl at the right line and lengths to take wickets when it mattered the most. At the same time, he has often made costly mistakes by leaking plenty of runs with his loose deliveries. We have seen him getting smacked for sixes when he bowled right at the slot. He comes second on the list in terms of conceding the most sixes (20) in T20Is in 2023 so far.
3. Ish Sodhi
Ish Sodhi is known for his potential to turn the ball both ways and create all sorts of problems for the batsmen. He has been attacking but at the same time, he has conceded runs for not executing the bowling variations properly. Ish Sodhi conceded as many as 18 sixes in T20Is this year. One must know that consistency in terms of the line and length, along with adaptability to different match situations is very important for the leg-spinners to minimize the flow of runs.
4. Tabraiz Shamsi
Tabraiz Shamsi operates as a left-arm chinaman bowler from South Africa. He has been highly effective in limited-overs cricket with his unique style and variations but at the same time, he has also been targeted by batsmen when his variations turn out to be predictable. However, in order for him to keep the batters in check, he needs to continuously evolve his game. He has conceded as many as 15 sixes so far in 2023.
