Aaron Finch (Melbourne Renegades)

Biggest Hitters of the BBL: Best of Aaron Finch

When you think of clearing the rope in the Big Bash League, the name Aaron Finch quickly comes to mind. The second most prolific six-hitter in the tournament’s history, the powerful opener averages 1.3 sixes per game and always dominates the highlights packages whenever he’s at his big-hitting best. Finch also has the distinction of forcing a rule change in the competition; balls that hit the roof at Marvel Stadium are now worth six runs after the Renegades opener was robbed of a maximum when he hit the roof in a match in 2012.

D'Arcy Short (Hobart Hurricanes)

Matches: 43

Sixes: 71 (Rank 5)

Balls per six: 17.3 (Rank 22)

% of runs in sixes: 24.1 (Rank 27)

Biggest Hitters of the BBL: Best of D'Arcy Short

A powerhouse at the top of the order for the Hobart Hurricanes, D'Arcy Short is more about volume of runs than just six-hitting ability, but he's no stranger to clearing the rope. An average of 1.65 sixes per game puts him behind only Chris Lynn amongst the competition's top 10 run-scorers and Short has hit some of the biggest sixes the BBL has seen, including a handful onto the roof at Blundstone Arena.
