The 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League has seen some monstrous maximums being hit out of the park.

A match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals on September 22 saw 33 sixes being hammered. Royal Challengers Bangalore's AB de Villiers, last Monday, hit two sixes which ended up denting cars and holding up traffic outside Sharjah.
