Today we bring you the list of top 10 biggest hitters in the world of cricket, first we take a look at the recent history players who light up cricket grounds in the world with their massive strokes, than we will take a look at top 10 biggest hitters from the past.

Shahid afridi biggest hitter in world cricket#1. Shahid Afridi (Pakistan)
Total Sixes: 404

Boom Boom is a six hitting mechine, even into his late 30’s he can strike the ball as good as anybody. He is the leading six hitter in international cricket (test + odi + t20), already crossed four hundred sixes in his career. Shahid Afridi’s fastest century record was broken by Corey Anderson but Afridi has all the talent in the world to take the record back.
Chris Gayle six#2. Chris Gayle (West Indies)
Total Sixes: 253

One of the finest hitters of cricket ball and has been a revealation in the shorter format, his 253 sixes in International cricket could be doubled if we count all domestic t20 matches. Gayle is powerful hitter but his record could have been even better had he taken the game more professionaly.
Sanath Jayasuriya biggest hitter#3. Sanath Jayasuriya (Sri Lanka)
Total Sixes: 302

Started the trend of blasting in the first 15 overs, since than he has been a constant pain for bowlers with his flick of the wrist shots over cover and leg flicks which got him so many sixes. Jayasuriya retired from cricket in 2009 but his legacy is untouchable.
Yuvraj Singh Biggest hitters#4. Yuvraj Singh (India)
Total Sixes: 221

Hit 6 sixes in an over against Stuart Broad in 2007 world cup t20, Yuvi got the best timing of all the players on this list. He is a match winner on his day and won quite a few for Indian over the years.

andrew flintoff#5. Andrew Flintoff (England)
Total Sixes: 177

Freddy Flintoff’s career was short-lived but was fun as long as it lasted. He was a well built player who could strike the ball far and handsome. I am absolutely convinced his six tally could have been much higher if he was just a batsman, bowling caused him injures and had to retire early than many would have expected.
Adam Gilchrist six biggest hitter#6. Adam Gilchrist (Australia)
Total Sixes: 262

Adam Gilchrist arguably the greatest wicket keeper batsman ever and as long as his career lasted he demolish every bowler he faced, Wasim Akram rate him as the most difficult batsman to bowl against, he was equally impressive in test matches.
Brendon McCullum six#7. Brendon McCullum (New Zealand)
Total Sixes: 277

Brendan McCullum is quite a short player by stature, but when it comes to hitting the second to none. He has some great knocks under his belt including that 100 in the opening match of first IPL season.
Virender Sehwag six#8. Virender Sehwag (India)
Total Sixes: 243

Now he is a proper batsman with absolute great timing and touch and Sehawag can slog his way through as well. He was part of Indian opening pair for over a decade and produced some of the greatest knocks in World Cricket.
Lance Klusener six#9. Lance Klusener (South Africa)
Total Sixes: 96

Started the career as a fast bowler who could only bat at no.11, but boy he turn things around. Lance “Zulu” Klusener was one of the finest late order batsman and his baseball style back lift when batting helped him to master the art of big hitting.
Andrew Symonds biggest hitter#10. Andrew Symonds (Australia)
Total Sixes: 142

A troubled off pitch player but at his peak he was one of the best hitters in modern cricket. His big stature and ability to hit the ball long way was evident from the start of his career when he hit 20 sixes in one match at just age 20 in english county game.
