    Most Sixes By A Test Player

    I believe that Chris Cairns (NZ) holds this record before he retired in England last year.

    I cannot find anywhere how many he hit? Does anyone know?

    Who if anyone will be able to catch him? Pietersen perhaps?

    Gilchrist will catch him first. Who knows after that.

    Flintoff. Has many more years in him yet. And already has 59! But yes... Gilchrist will get it... but maybe not in this series the way things are going for him!

    Wow. Mikey Holding scored nearly a quarter of his runs (23.7%) in maximums! Kudos!

    Yeah, Flintoff is a good chance, as is Ponting potentially. Hayden too if he ever recovers his career. He hit nearly 10 of those sixes in the one innings, of course. Also Shahid Afridi, who has a phenomenal average with his sixes... he has 28 in under 20 tests, while Flintoff has 59 in 50 and Gilchrist 80 in 71.

    Gilchrist, Ponting, Warne, Symonds and Lee will hold down the top 5 of deliberately played and well executed sixes when all is said and done.

    I'll say it again for clarification.... what??

    Symonds? Lee? Warne?

    Symonds - will never play another test. Maybe two if he's lucky.

    Lee - bats at no. 9, hardly a regular six-hitter

    Warne - the odd innings with a six, but will hardly challenge it. Even after 120+ tests..

    Gilchrist is the only candidate really. Ponting.. i'd be surprised but its possible.

    No, you didn't stutter.

    Shahid Afridi will end up with the most

    There is no body that can hit more sixes then afridi in any form of the game

    whether he is from

    England
    Australia
    etc

    Shahid afridi rules all of them sixers
    Bob is very insane stay away from him

    FAVOURITE UNDER 19 CRICKETER JP McNamara AKA ORTHODOX

    Quite surprised to see Kallis up there, not the type of player from what I saw in the winter and in previous series.
