    Oval: 6 in 86 inns (inc E-SL 75 and NZ-USA 04 - only one genuine game in the 50 era)
    Lord's: 4 in 82 (inc E-I 75 (Gavaskar's Game))
    Old Trafford: 0 in 68
    Headingley: 0 in 56
    Trent Bridge: 3 in 60 (inc P-SL 75, none in the 50 era)
    Edgbaston: 2 in 76 (inc NZ-EAf 75, none in the 50 era)

    So, in total, on the six major ODI grounds, we have 15 totals of 300+ in 428 tries, of which four were bludgeonings of non-Test nations and seven further were before the time of fifty overs a side.

    That leaves four genuine scores of over 300, which I'd grant as five seeing as England made 363/7 in 55 against Pakistan in 1992. So about one percent. Loads...

    What's your point... ok, there isn't many 300 scores there but if you are trying to suggest they are all being scored in the subcontinent then you are wrong. Even in this VB series so far Pakistan has made 307 and West Indies made a huge 339.

    Besides... the topic is about sixes... not scores of 300+

    Sehwag309 started it when he mentioned how seven of the top 10 were subcontinentals and so they're the best six hitters, I suggested it was a spurious conclusion, CC told us all how every team coming to England and New Zealand made 300 in all their ODIs, then we were bombed for hiding WMDs.

    I may have got carried away someplace there.

    I merely suggested that sub-con had the culture of going for bit hits...they either like to do it, can do it or merely like to please the crazy-public there which is constantly on their back

    But others came with flat pitches, what not! everyone has their own theory


    Ab the HACKS?..I guess u didnt get it when I said OUTBACK?..Aussie Outback

    In my opinion Afridi has changed his batting style a little bit:

    Look at his runs he has scored in the VB Series....:

    against Australia 56 runs of 27 balls (4 fours, four sixes)
    against West Indies 48 runs of 37 balls (3 fours, 3 sixes)
    against West Indies 17 runs of 16 balls (0 fours, 1 six)
    against Australia 30 runs of 13 balls (3 fours, 2 sixes)
    against West Indies 23 runs of 10 balls (1 four, 2 sixes)
    --------
    Finals
    against Australia 26 runs of 15 balls (0 fours, 3 sixes)

    Total : 200 runs
    Average: 33 runs in an innings (6x)


    And then you have to look at his strike rate.....

    Strike rate : 194

    So i think Afridi has done very very well in this VB Series......His strike rate is outstanding and the runs he has scored are respectable.

    So dont cry on Afridi...he is improving himself, thanks to BOB Woolmer...

    Quite an interesting question actually.

    Can you read???

    --------
    Finals
    against Australia 26 runs of 15 balls (0 fours, 3 sixes)

    => 15 sixes in 6 innings and he has at least hit 1 six in an innings.
    Very interesting to see, how much fours he has scored... 11 fours in 6 innings.
    ...interesting...

    An average of 33 isn't bad at all... hopefully he can keep this up and boost his average up. Right now it's at 24 which isn't very flattering. But his strike rate is very impressive... 102 in all matches and 200 in this series!

    considering afridi's overall impact to world cricket and pakistani cricket, i can't think of a more insignificant world record or world record holder...

    Only disproving what someone claimed about the conditions worldwide.

    Clearly the lack of 300+ scores is for a reason - ie the pitches aren't as easy.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Incorrect.
    ENG or NZ dont have a hall of famer batting lineup anyways and as such, since they will play the lion's share of matches on their shores, 300+ isnt very viable.
    But check opposition teams....275-300+ is not rare.....infact it isnt rare anywhere in the world anymore.
