Default Aftab Ahmed ranked fourth in International Sixes League

Aftab Ahmed ranked fourth in International Sixes League





Despite a last-minute charge from Sanath Jayasuriya, Chris Gayle is the inaugural winner of the SKY Sports International Sixes League with a total of 37 sixes in the calendar year.
Jayasuriya made it interesting by hitting five maximums in his century in the first One Day International against New Zealand, but was unable to add to his tally in the second match played on 31 December - and so ended one short of Gayle's tally.

Indian MS Dhoni had a barren Second Test against South Africa at Durban and so remained in third place on 32 with the triumvirate of Aftab Ahmed, Andrew Symonds and Adam Gilchrist on 29.

Over the course of the international cricketing year of 2006, a total of 1,142 sixes were hit by 203 different batsmen.

We need our own S. Rajesh to make up those conditions and both Tiger_Eyes and sadi can apply for the position. :p

Ha ha Zakir, you just beat me to it. I do like the idea of using S. Rajesh as the synonym for the "lies, dam lies, and biases statistics" school of analytics. We can say, "pulling a SRajesh, Aftab is the worlds top young talent in hitting 6" and put a small footnote which says "cutoff was set at age 23".

alternatively, he could go in the opposite direction of the panesar article and set the max number for qualification to 29 sixes

I think Aftab has highest average of sixes/innings (assuming everyone played 2 inningses/test and batted in every ODIs and 20/20 matches)

Here's the six/innings of the top four:

37/50 (Gayle)
36/41 (Jayasuria)
32/44 (Dhoni)
29/30 (Aftab)

Aftab Ahmed 34.27586
Sanath Jayasurya 39.16667
Andrew Symonds 43.03448
Adams Gilchrist 46.06897
MS Dhoni 50.90625
Abdul Razzak 63.625
Chris Gayle 71.86486
Mark Boucher 82.13636
Brian Lara 89.3913
Kevin Pietersen 127.9048
Ricky Ponting 128.3478

Good one Spitty and Miraz. We have a joint winner for Rajesh's spot. Actually we can can do better than him with any stats.
