Will the man with the most sixes influence IPL title hopes?

It is always worth considering who you think the man to blast the most sixes will be ahead of the new season when looking to bet on the overall winner.

Having such a player in the side can be the difference between winning and losing on the big stage. Having that player in the ranks can only help a side's chances of winning the title.

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians are the joint-favourites to secure the 2020 title. They are both made 5.00 (4/1) chances with bet365.

Chennai Super Kings are the third-favourites at 6.00 (5/1). Behind them is Delhi Capitals, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders all at 8.00 (7/1).

King's XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals are the outsiders at 10.00 (9/1).

Shimron Hetmyer Chris Gayle West Indies

Big-hitting brilliance from the IPL's superstars

You’d expect nothing less than the IPL to highlight those players to pummel the most sixes each season.

This is again another popular and enjoyable market to bet on. What cricket fan doesn’t love to see their chosen big hitter to start launching the ball into the packed stands.

This award has been dominated by West Indian superstar Chris Gayle over the years.

He won it for three successive years in 2011, 2012 and 2013. He regained his crown in 2015.

The only other player to win it more than once in Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell. Both men team-up for KXIP this campaign.

Both men are again set to feature in IPL 2020 and could prove popular selections in this market.

It will be some feat if anyone can beat Chris Gayle’s brilliant total of 59 sixes back in 2012.

Fellow West Indian Andre Russell is the only other man to break the 50 mark when he powered his way to 52 sixes in 14 matches last season.
