    130m+ is bloody impressive. Nice strike.

    I don't think they did, and I have seen a few go over the roof at Adelaide which can't be measured due to the set up of Hawkeye/Eagleeye.

    I don't think the measurement of sixes means much, as there are different sized grounds, the measurement technology has it limitations, they don't take into account the height of the ball whn it impacts etc.

    I would be more interested if the measurement technology could track balls going out of the ground, or give a predicted distance the ball would have gone eg. for one which was still on the up when it smashed into level 2 of Etihad Stadium.
