In the Asia Cup, some batters have shown why it's not a huge deal to hit massive sixes. Former Pakistan player Shahid Afridi smacked 26 maximums in the competition and is ruling the chart for scoring the most number of sixes in the competition. His match-winning back-to-back couple of sixes against Ravichandran Ashwin in the 2014 Asia Cup is still one of the best moments for the Pakistan cricket supporters. Indian Skipper, Rohit Sharma matched Afridi's number in the India vs Pakistan Super 4 clash of the Asia Cup 2023.

They defeated India in the final by 100 runs in Karachi. Jayasuriya played an aggressive knock of 125 which included five sixes. 

The Indian skipper became the second-highest six-hitter with 22 maximums in 24 games. In the 2018 Asia Cup, Rohit became the leading six-hitter in the competition, with 13 maximums in five matches. In the Asia Cup 2023, he hit 4 sixes against Pakistan to match the tally with Afridi.

Suresh Raina is the fourth-highest six-hitter with 18 maximums in 13 games. The former India captain Sourav Ganguly is in the fifth position on the list with 13 maximums.
