I would like to know

Who hit the shortest international six in cricket?

I don’t want to see answers quoting Mark Waugh or Steve Waugh’s time sixes. Since they are not accurate. The sixes after the six distance calculation invented in international cricket should come under consideration.

I think, the sixer distance depends on the ground. So it cannot be said which is the shortest six. For your consideration, you can refer this video dailymotion.com/video/… for the shortest six; –  Ganesh Babu . T. Y Apr 1 '14 at 6:52
@Ganesh - Nope. That was not considered as a six (i.e. boundary). They got 5 runs for penalty and 1 run for completing 1 run (or crossing each other) before the ball hit the helmet. See the law 41.3 Protective helmets belonging to the fielding side –  hims056 Apr 1 '14 at 9:17
@Ganesh, I meant this six. –  Sports Fan Apr 1 '14 at 9:38
