India and England also feature in the list at the third spot as well after both teams hit a combined 56 sixes in the three-match ODI series way back in 2017.

England's Jonny Bairstow currently leads the tally in the series with 14 sixes. He is followed by Rishabh Pant, who has smashed 11. Third on the list is all-rounder Ben Stokes, who tonked all of his 10 sixes in the second ODI when he played a bombastic 52-ball 99 runs knock.

Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are next on the list, with eight and six sixes, respectively.

India ended the first innings with 11 sixes, taking their tally to 33.
