    What are you judging them on? The frequency of sixes per innings (Flintoff has the highest ratio in ODIs at over 1 per innings), the average size of the sixes they hit (Cairns), ability to hit sixes at the start of their innings (Afridi)...?
    I think if these guys had a six derby like baseball's home run derby than Cairns and Afridi would be who I would put my money on.

    I take it purely by your list that this is only considering ODI's??

    yes admittedly its a bit of a "hit and giggle" type list...

    I'm simply judging them on the chance they would be likely to hit a six in any given innings...so really the likelyhood they would clear the ropes in an innings if a was a bookmaker

    yeah seen that list..Mcmillan and astle are in the .40 region from memory which would prob be in the top twenty..

    Look out for Pietersen's ratio once he's played enough games to qualify for the list...If he continues at his current rate he may beat them all.

    Pietersen has hit 18 in 9 innings so leads them all with a rate of 2 per innings if my arithmetic is correct. (A enjoy a bit of trainspotting now and then).

    Sehwag
    Ganguly
    Flintoff
    Powell
    Gilchrist
    Gayle

    Thats a round dozen. In no particular order although I think the top five would be the top five for me.. If I have to remove two....errr...I might remove Ganguly and Gayle.

    You can be forgiven for including me (sitting on top of that list or close to the top anyway) as one of them !
