Albie Morkel 125 metres: The Longest six in IPL ever

There have been some impressive power hitting performances in the IPL, with players hitting the leather cricket balls incredibly far. Albie Morkel, who struck the longest six in IPL history at an incredible 125 metres, is at the top of the standings. A lower order batsman who can come in, bat down the order, and take on himself to swiftly score runs and end an innings well is a necessity for every IPL squad. That player for the Chennai Super Kings was Albie Morkel. Despite being Chennai’s starting pacer and opening the bowling during the powerplay with his swing bowling, he is a relatively underappreciated ball striker.

His sixes in the IPL Tennis Ball Super Sixes Challenge, where he launched the ball 105 metres into the air, must be fresh in everyone’s memories. However, in IPL 2008, he hit the ball for 125 metres against Pragyan Ojha of Deccan Chargers, which stands as the official highest six in IPL history. In IPL history, he is still the only player to have crossed the 125-meter milestone.
