The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup has ended. Australia have won their maiden T20 WC title. But, there are many statistics, which have drawn the attention of the cricket lovers. Bangladesh batters Liton and Naim have been included in an embarrassing list.

Without any six- most number of balls played by the batter’s list consists of Tiger batters Liton and Naim. Both of them have played more than 100 balls without any over boundary in the run tally. Naim has played 105 balls, while Liton played 104 balls without hitting a Six!
Scottish batter Cross is at the number 3 of the list. He played 80 balls, but couldn't hit a Six! His countrymen Greaves is at number 4 in that list, who was the hero of Scotland’s famous winner against Bangladesh. Greaves played 73 balls.
There are some popular names on the list too – Steve Smith (71) Quinton De Kock (64) Roston Chase (56). They are 4th, 5th, 6th in the list respectively.
Twenty/20 cricket is pre-eminent for the explosive batting display. Hitting boundaries is not an easy job. Every team practices to hit the ball on a regular basis. In this format scoring higher is the key to challenge the opponents.
Hitting the ball out of the park is a bit of a difficult task to be done. But, scoring a Four is not that complicated. Although there are some batters who didn’t hit any boundaries in this year's T20 World Cup.
Scotland’s McLeod, West Indies’ Lendl Simmons, Namibia’s Jan Frylinck are in this discomfiting list. Caribbean Simons is well known for his batting ability, but, his inclusion in the list would leave many cricket fans in a despairing mode.
McLeod, Simmons, Frylinck have played 46, 42, 33 balls respectively.
