Since the days of yore, I have had witnessed a lot of Test stuff. And to be honest, it has some similarity on offer regarding what life throw at us for instance: batsmen with most sixes in Test cricket. The most sought-after batsman Virender Sehwag from India had done tremendously well for the Indian National Cricket Team before walking off in style.

Well, the rollercoaster ride is all about the moments of pitfalls and an enticing move to cherish the road to glory. While being the staunch advocate of the limited-overs cricket many cricket pundits once in their respective lives have had admitted the format like Test cricket has the advantage to gain the popularity in the contemporary cricket.

With a captain marvel of Indian National Cricket Team like Virat Kohli donning the whites, Test cricket in itself has a chance to expand the chart to a booming high.

So, to discuss some of the top positions with most sixes in the Test fold, cricket eventually, in general, has set the bar high to entertain one and all.

Outrageous with the bat, Brendon McCullum steals the show after garnering 107 sixes in 101 Test matches. He tops the charts with Australian batting prodigy Adam Gilchrist following McCullum with exactly 100 maximums in 96 sixes.

However, India’s lone player owing to the top ten list of players with most sixes in Tests is none other than Virender Sehwag. Having the knack of dominating the bowlers early on, Sehwag has maintained the fifth position with 91 sixes in 104 Tests.

Moreover, the South Africa National Cricket Team’s stalwart Jacques Kallis might be a surprise for many, but his pure stroke play has done wonders for the Proteas over the years. He has struck 97 sixes in 166 Test to find the fourth spot of the most sixes list.

The 10th spot is held by explosive former Australian National Cricket Team opener Matthew Hayden. He had 82 sixes under his belt in 103 Tests.

The list also introduces West Indies Cricket Team’s Brian Charles Lara (6th) from the Windies shores and Andrew Flintoff (ninth) from England.

Interestingly, Chris Cairns from New Zealand is placed seventh at the moment with 87 sixes in 62 Tests. It eventually stands as the least number of Tests played by a player who has made it to the top ten list of batsmen with most sixes Test cricket.
