2003 ODI World Cup: Top 5 Most Six Hitters
Sixes or over-boundaries hugely play as the deciding factor of a match in the limited-overs cricket. During the 2003 ODI World Cup, which was officially named as the ICC Cricket World Cup 2003, we experienced a total of 266 sixes.
Many aggressive batsmen showed their true ability in hitting sixes on the African soil during the 2003 ODI World Cup.
Here we are talking about the top five most six hitters in the 2003 ODI World Cup.
Scott Styris (New Zealand) – 9 sixes
While many of the New Zealand batsmen were underperformed in the 2003 ODI World Cup, played some firing knocks during the 2003 ODI World Cup. The right-handed middle-order batsman was the second-most run-scorer for his team in that tournament (268 runs in seven innings). He smashed a total of nine sixes in that tournament.
During that tournament, Styris played his best knock during the Group Stage match against Sri Lanka (at Bloemfontein on 10th February 2003), where he single-handedly fought to chase 273 runs target. While he scored 141 runs off 125 balls, he smashed six sixes in that innings along with three fours. However, his team lost that game by 47 runs.
