Bengaluru: By the way, Chinnaswamy Stadium has always been considered a paradise for batsmen. The pitch here has always been helpful for batting. Then in T20 matches, it rains runs here. The small boundaries of the ground also help a lot in this and hence the IPL matches held in Bengaluru are often high scoring. In-spite of this Royal Challengers Bangalore Captain Faf Duplessis hit a six against Lucknow Super Giants, let alone Chinnaswamy, any boundary would have been proven.
RCB captain Faf Duplesey entertained thousands of fans at the Chinnaswamy Stadium on Monday evening. When Duplessy, who started slow, picked up the pace, it became difficult to stop him. Then in the 15th over, Duplessi thrashed Ravi Bishnoi in such a way that increased the noise inside the stadium manifold.
Skyscraper six by du Plessis
Duplesey sent the third ball of Bishnoi’s over for 6 runs by playing over the deep covers. On the next shot of Duplessy, everyone’s mouth was left open. The Bangalore captain hit this ball very high towards deep midwicket. The shot was not only high but was also very long and fell on the roof of the stadium.
This six of Duplesey reached 115 meters away, which is the longest sixer of this season. Earlier, 101 meter sixes were hit by two different players.

Glenn Maxwell also started laughing after seeing this shot of Duplessy. After Duplessy, Glenn Maxwell also hit a six on the last ball of the same over. Duplessy missed out on equalizing the record by a margin of 10 metres. The record for the longest six in IPL is in the name of Albie Morkel, who hit a sixer of 125 meters.
