    Biggest Six You've Ever Seen

    I think McMillan's 6 tonight that left Wellington Stadium has to be one of the biggest hits I've ever seen. Any that stick in the mind or anyone have any good stories about huge hits?

    Mark Waugh straight drove Vittori and the ball landed on the Lillee Marsh stand at the WACA.

    98 I think.

    Shane Bond vs India, Eden Park 2003. Baseball type swing, cleared the West Stand. Unbelieveable. That's the biggest I've ever seen at a game, McMillan's tonight on TV looked massive though, probably bigger.

    I remember in Brett Lee (i think it was) in South Africa (haha sorry but i think it was that too, not sure though) a few years ago hit a six that went over the stand and smashed a car window in the car park, apparently it was some politicians car, although im not sure if that was entirely true. That was pretty huge

    I heard Tom Moody say that was the biggest one he saw but for comparison the one afridi hit into the opposite end in the recent vb series must have been a good 40m back up on the 2nd tier, huge. Also remember Martyn hitting a straight one out of the ground at Cairns last year against Sri Lanka. Then of course there is the one Freddy hit straight into his dad's lap against the windies at Edgbaston.

    Davison hit a huge one at the World Cup 2003. Way, way out of the ground. Cameron White last week also bloody smashed MacGill. They were huge. Symonds onto the roof at the WACA, Afridi into the 2nd. tier at the WACA, all massive hits.

    You wouldn't think someone Martyn's size could figure in the big hitting stakes. Must have timed it magnificently. Would be nice to be able to measure them somehow some time in the future and have the figure come up on the screen like the bowling speeds.

    Another one I remember is in a domestic game at Eden Park Outer Oval, Andre Adams (at least I think it was him) hit one out of the ground and it landed on the road outside the ground.

    Tom Moody said the other biggest six he had seen on this pitch was Waugh against Vettori but afridis was bigger

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    I remember Jayasuirya hitting a big six in Singapore that went well out of the ground. I think it was the innings that he got the fastest 50 or the one the he got the fastest 100 before Afridi took it over.

    I think Afridi six at the WACA was as big as that one but, it was also probably bigger then Mark Waugh.

    yeh afridi's six at the WACA was HUGE. just wondering, is the WACA a really really big ground? coz if ppl have hit it out of the ground, and yet the 2nd tier on the waca is considerred bigger?


    i'd say the biggest six wld b hit by afridi considering he hits soo many of them and hits them very very hard

    I remember John Dakin hit Andy Caddick out of the county ground and over the neighboring car park..

    Simon Francis cleared the River on the other side of the ground as well, over some quite high stands too...
