There are many different ways of hitting a six and it all depends on how the batter approaches the situation. If he is in an attacking mood, he would obviously generate immense bat speed from the pace of the ball.
On the other hand, some batters often rely on their timing to hit sixes, especially while locking horns with the pacers. As a batsman, both factors including “timing” and “power” are essential to the core.
