It is no doubt that the batsmen stamped their authority in the T20I format most of the time compared to the bowlers. Deep down inside, the fans are aware of the fact T20 has been the batsman’s game since the batters dominated the proceedings ever since the format was launched.
On the other hand, the majority of the bowlers haven’t been that successful. Even a slight mistake in terms of line and length could be a huge mistake as the batsmen might capitalize on the opportunity to better effect.
We have seen bowlers getting smashed for maximums if they fail to bowl at the right line and length. In this article, we will now go through the names of five bowlers who conceded the most sixes in Twenty20 Internationals. In fact, the majority of the bowlers in the list are spinners.
