voted for Yusuf Pathan. And my religious following of international aside from our beloved Tigers makes me qualified to list down the honest and legitimate six-hitter nominations from each team, as follows:

Australia: David Hussey
Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal
Canada: Rizwan Cheema, John Davison
England: n/a
India: Yusuf Pathan, Suresh Raina
Ireland: n/a
Kenya: n/a
Netherlands: Ryan ten Doeschate
New Zealand: Brendon McCullum, Ross Taylor
Pakistan: Shahid Afridi, Abdul Razzaq
South Africa: AB de Villiers
Sri Lanka: Tillekaratne Dilshan, Angelo Matthews
West Indies: Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard
Zimbabwe: Elton Chigumbura

Of these, a curtailed list of 7, who are true contenders to finish with the most number of sixes at the end of the tournament, would be:

David Hussey
Tamim Iqbal
Yusuf Pathan
Shahid Afridi
Angelo Matthews
Chris Gayle
Kieron Pollard

Excellent breakdown Mahir.

So far I have heard of only that centurior partnership of Razzaq that's why I didn't include him because lack of nadim's chorai links i couldn't watch any other games of him. So my decisions were based more on a consistency of six hitters. I'd say for instance Yuvi should be also included with Raina and Pathan. Same with Doeschate. Haven't seen any of his games. That's the reason for my list to be incomplete.

Razzaq's hitting abilities are no secret - his power-hitting is still as raw as ever! His flat-batted swats would go through a dozen concrete walls!

As far as Yuvraj is concerned, he has lost his confidence so much so that he only resorts to a more careful approach in his batting nowadays, and anything that he's tried hitting in the air has brought him trouble. He would do well to keep it on the ground (which he's sublime in doing anyway) and build his innings through the percentage shots without taking unnecessary risks. Yuvi himself and India will benefit from that. And that makes his chances of finishing in list of top six-hitters very minimal.

Doeschate is simply Netherlands' best power-hitter. He doesn't stand a chance in any list that includes the more prominet and elite hitters of the game. Ditto for the Canadian duo.

Tamim is great-batsman in process but I don't think he is a hitter , he is more of stylish fast run scorer than 'can hit six for fun' kind of player. What you guys think?


My best bet is (in no particular order):

1.Raina
2.)Y.Pathan
3.)Afridi
4.)Razzaq
5.)C.White
6.) Watson
7.) Morne van Wyk
8.)Brendan
9.) Gayle
10.)Pollard

Dude I can't possibly include everyone. It's can be very subjective. Only one I should've included automatically was Razzaq which Mahir pointed out. As I said it has more to do with consistency.
