Although David Warner is one of the highest run-scorers in IPL history, six-hitting is perhaps not his most well-known attribute.

So, the fact that he lies in second place on this list of batsmen with Highest Number of Sixes against RCB in IPL games with 36 big hits in 15 innings, goes to show just how many times he has been well-set while playing against Bangalore!
