During his time with the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Robin Uthappa was an aggressive batsman and a strong hitter. His timing is superb, as evidenced by his 120-meter six off Dwayne Bravo, the fourth-longest six in IPL history.
In the 2008 edition of the IPL, New Zealand batsman Ross Taylor was a member of the Royal Challengers Bangalore and smashed a 119m six, which is still the fifth-longest six in IPL history. He smashed Jacob Oram of the Chennai Super Kings for a huge six in the deep mid-wicket area, which has been his favorite spot.
