Sharma has hit 76 sixes in 40 matches against Australia, including 29 at Australian venues. At second spot in the list is former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi with 25 sixes. 

Sharma has had an impressive record against Australia in ODIs. In 40 matches, he has scored 2208 runs at an average of 61.33.

Shahid Afridi - 25 sixes 

Viv Richards - 21 sixes

Sharma will miss the T20 and ODI series against Australia due to hamstring injury he sustained during the recently-concluded Indian Premier League.
