    If he tried to bat properly he would hit less sixes, and vice versa..

    You can't have it both ways..

    For me the type of sixes you hit counts. Thts why i will always think of big hitters as poeple like Cairns, Hayden, Freddie and maybe even Pieterson. Who seem to play the same shots as every else, but the ball just goes further. Im anti-slogging

    No but when Afridi swings he isnt trying to clear the boundary.. he is trying to clear the stand and the road outside it! Thats why his sixes look better than most because he tries to hit the ball for a 12.

    Flintoff can block the ball for a six, theres not even a follow through in some of the shots he plays.

    That's because..
    a) flat wickets
    b) small grounds
    c) more ODIs!

    flat wickets ?
    thats a common misconception about the subcontinent.
    Massive scores are being scored everywhere and have been since time immemorial. So flat wickets doesnt hold water.
    Small grounds ? Mate, most grounds in the subcontinent are bigger than NZ or ENG or WI. Eden and Wankhede are just about the biggest grounds out there or amongst the top
    And while more ODIs is a credible point, we should also look at the ratio of sixes/match to get a more accurate picture.

    Considering the volume of meaningless games those nations play on the traditionally batsman friendly wickets - is it really much of a surprise?

    Rubbish.

    How many times has 300 been hit in an ODI in England or NZ?

    Because neither team has quality batsmen obviously. The only one I see is Kevin Pietersen, and he's a South African. Strauss too, oh wait he's South African. Cairns is okay too I guess.

    By the opposition ?
    Not that infrequently as you would lead us to believe.
