Cricket has over the years been regarded as a gentleman’s game, where finesse and technique are at the epitome when it comes to the batsmen. Technically gifted and crafty players have been held in high regards and there have been many instances where six-hitting has been attributed to an act of exhibition of brute force by a player.
While it does take some arm strength to hit the ball into the stands, it is a combination of power, technique and timing that takes a hit from being just another six to become a shot that is remembered for years to come. In a game of cricket, as important it is to take singles, rotate the strike and make sure that the scoreboard keeps ticking, sometimes it is that one six that differentiates between the team that ends up on the winning side and the one that loses.
And, there are only a select few players who have the capability to hit the ball sailing into the stands for a memorable maximum at will.
