The two sixes hit by Matthew Hayden on Friday against New Zealand took his tally of sixes in this edition of World Cup to 17. This is now the highest tally of sixes for any batsman in a single World Cup tournament. Before today, Hayden was at level with India's Sourav Ganguly with 15 sixes.

Hayden's 17 sixes, in fact, are the most hit by a batsman in any series / tournament in one-day internationals' history. Hayden equalled India's MS Dhoni's world record. Dhoni had hit same number of sixes when Sri Lanka played a seven match series in India in 2005-06 season.
