With 2 teams added to the tournament since 2022, the number of games in the tournament is more than usual. Not just that, over the years, the batters’ mindset are getting more and more positive and they play with intent right from ball one. Also, the implementation of the impact player rule, the penalty to field only 4 fielders outside if the overs are not completed on time, etc are some of the main reasons for so many sixes in the tournament. Over the years, the sixes have been hit quite frequently in the IPL. Also, the pitches are prepared more in favor of batters.

In IPL 2023, the batters hit six after every 15.34 balls, bettering IPL 2022’s 16.21. In IPL 2024 so far, after 57 matches, the ball per six number is 13.01. So you can see, six-hitting is getting better and better over the years.
