    Couldn't give a ****, but I hate Symonds, so Dhoni. Plus Dhoni is probably better anyway.

    trying to confirm the criteria

    the ability to hit the ball as far as possible or the ability to hit 6s [even if it clears the rope by a few centimeters] more often than not

    Symonds hate can't extend to the fact he is superb at limited overs cricket and probably the strongest man in cricket ATM. He can hit a six as far as anyone.

    Not as far as A. Morkel. I wonder if Symonds could throw a kettle over a pub though.

    Both have good reputations but Symonds has been doing it for longer and arguably better. So I would say symonds.
