IPL 2024 is turning out to be a dream season for Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) as they are rewriting the record books of T20 cricket. May 18 (Saturday) turned out to be a special day for the Bengaluru-based franchise as they qualified for the playoffs after defeating the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

The playoff qualification came after a dramatic turnaround as RCB won six games in a row to ensure the same. However, the spotlight on RCB's playoff qualification took the sheen away from another world record that they registered at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Saturday.

RCB hit a total of 16 sixes in the 68th match of IPL 2024 against Chennai to become the first team ever to smash 150 or more sixes in a single edition of a T20 tournament. RCB have hammered a total of 157 sixes already in the ongoing edition of the IPL which is the most by any team in a particular season of a T20 tournament.
