IPL 2024: Longest Sixes and Underperforming Stars

June 05, 2024

The 2024 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) has reached its end, delivering thrilling performances and record-breaking feats. This season, batsmen have redefined six-hitting, sending the ball soaring out of stadiums with unprecedented ease and distance.

Monumental Sixes of IPL 2024

The sheer power displayed by the batsmen this year is remarkable. Leading the pack is MS Dhoni of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), who smashed the longest six of the season, sending RCB's Yash Dayal’s delivery a staggering 110 meters out of the park in their final league game. Following closely is Dinesh Karthik of Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), who launched a colossal 108-meter six off T Natarajan’s bowling at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, landing the ball on the roof.

Several other players have also impressed with their six-hitting prowess. Venkatesh Iyer (Kolkata Knight Riders), Nicholas Pooran (Lucknow Super Giants), Heinrich Klaasen (Sunrisers Hyderabad), and Shimron Hetmyer (Rajasthan Royals) all hit sixes measuring 106 meters.

Here's a quick look at the longest sixes of IPL 2024:

Disappointing Performances: Flop Players of IPL 2024

Despite the dazzling displays of power hitting, some prominent players have failed to live up to expectations this season.

Hardik Pandya
After a successful stint with Gujarat Titans, Hardik Pandya's return to Mumbai Indians (MI) as captain was underwhelming. MI finished at the bottom of the points table with only four wins. Hardik’s individual performance was below par, scoring just 216 runs at an average of 18, and his leadership was frequently questioned.

Glenn Maxwell
Glenn Maxwell’s season with Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) was forgettable. Expected to be a key player on batting-friendly surfaces, Maxwell managed only 52 runs in nine innings at a dismal average of 5.77. His future with RCB ahead of the IPL 2025 mega-auction looks uncertain.

Ajinkya Rahane
After a stellar previous season with Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Ajinkya Rahane couldn’t replicate his form in IPL 2024. Scoring 242 runs at an average of 20 and a strike rate of 123, Rahane’s inability to provide momentum was a significant factor in CSK’s failure to reach the playoffs.

Fans eagerly await more breathtaking moments and hope their favorite stars find their form in the remaining matches. Whether it's the joy of seeing a ball sail out of the stadium or the unexpected struggles of top players, this IPL season has been anything but predictable.
