Suryakumar to break Rizwan's T20I record

Most sixes in a calendar year (Full-member nations). Here are the top five batters.

Ireland batter hit 36 sixes from 23 innings in 2019. No other Ireland batter has hit more than 25 sixes in a year in T20Is. 

5 | Kevin O'Brien

West Indies opener hit 37 sixes from 18 T20Is in 2021. Lewis's sixes to fours ratio was not that high.

4 | Evin Lewis

The Kiwi opener hit 41 sixes in 18 innings in 2021. He missed Rizwan's record because of lack of T20Is.
