The Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024) has been an action-packed season so far as fans have witnessed 16 riveting games in the mega event. The entertainment level has gone several notches higher in the ongoing 17th edition of the T20 extravaganza as record books have been shattered time and again. During the 17th game of the season between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Punjab Kings (PBKS), IPL 2024 added another feather in its cap as it recorded 300 sixes in just 17 games, the quickest ever in the history of the tournament.

Gujarat captain Shubman Gill registered the 300th maximum of the season as he smacked Harpreet Brar over his head on the last ball of the first over of the match. Notably, IPL 2023 earlier set the record for most sixes in the first 17 games with 259 sixes. However, courtesy of a couple of high-scoring games the sixes meter has been busy in the ongoing season etching its name in the record books.
