A crisp drive through covers or an elegant glance of the pads, or even a powerful slog or a reverse sweep, there is nothing more beautiful than seeing your favourite player sending the ball to the boundary. Boundaries play a crucial role, especially in T20 cricket where quick runs are the need of the hour. While six is the best result a batting team can get, it’s not always easy to send the ball over the boundary.
However, hitting fours is an art itself. It’s no way easier than hitting sixes. However, some players are very good at those. Over the years, the Indian T20 League has seen many talented cricketers grace the cricket field and help their team win crucial games. In the process, they have hit numerous boundaries as well. Here in this listicle, we will read about teams with the most boundaries in Indian T20 League.
