    The biggest I've seen was by someone you might not expect - Shane Bond. Smashed Ganguly out of Eden Park one time. Monstrous hit.

    Mark Waugh's off Vettori onto the roof of the Lille-Marsh Stand at the WACA ought to be in reckoning. Garner hit one onto the roof of the Members' at the SCG, and I saw Kim Hughes hit Bishen Bedi into the top deck of the Ladies' Stand at the same ground in 1977. I think that's still the biggest six I've seen hit live.

    Would probably just about clear mid-off at the MCG then.

    To be fair, it was over the West Stand, so one of the longer (or at least less ridiculously short) boundaries.

    I think that Mark Waugh six is talked about in the Afridi six video that I posted on the previous page. Tom Moody talks about that WACA six by Mark Waugh but says he thinks this is the biggest.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Just remembered that one from Eoin Morgan - hitting Dale Steyn out of the ground, across the street and onto the next building.

    How annoying it is when you search for Imran Khan on Google or YouTube and you end up with results for Imran Khan the actor. The cricketers should be allowed to patent their names.
    RIP Phil Hughes. Forever 63*
