Sanju Samson Sets New IPL Record: Fastest Indian to Reach 200 Sixes

In a thrilling encounter between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi, Sanju Samson etched his name in the annals of Indian Premier League (IPL) history by becoming the fastest Indian to reach 200 sixes.

Samson achieved this remarkable milestone during the DC vs RR IPL 2024 match, marking his 200th six in just 159 innings. Surpassing the previous record held by MS Dhoni, who reached the landmark in 165 innings, Samson’s achievement highlights his explosive batting prowess.

This feat catapults Samson into an elite list of IPL stalwarts, alongside the likes of Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers, David Warner, Kieron Pollard, and Andre Russell, who have also amassed 200 or more sixes in the tournament.

In the match against DC, with the Royals chasing a challenging target of 222 runs, Samson approached the milestone with characteristic flair. Sitting at 199 sixes, he wasted no time in dispatching Khaleel Ahmed’s delivery over the ropes, reaching his 200th six in just six balls.

Samson’s innings weren’t just about the record-breaking feat; he also displayed his batting brilliance by notching up a half-century in a mere 28 balls. His aggressive yet calculated approach to batting exemplifies his importance to the Rajasthan Royals’ lineup and solidifies his status as one of the premier batsmen in the IPL.

As Samson continues to dazzle with his remarkable performances, his latest milestone adds another feather to his cap and underscores his significance in the cricketing landscape, both domestically and internationally.
