Royal Challengers Bengaluru, on Saturday (May 18), created history by becoming the first-ever team to hit 150 sixes in a T20 tournament including the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Bengaluru-based outfit achieved the feat during the game against Chennai Super Kings at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. 

The record for hitting most sixes in an IPL season was previously held by Chennai Super Kings who had hit 145 sixes in 2018. The record was broken this season by Sunrisers Hyderabad who have hit 146 sixes so far and can become the second team after RCB to hit 150 sixes in a season. RCB, on Saturday, leapfrogged SRH in the sixes list and created history by becoming the first team to hit 150 sixes in a season.

In the first game of the season, RCB hit 6 sixes against CSK before hitting six more against Punjab Kings. In the third and fourth games, they hit 11 and 8 sixes respectively.
