I downloaded Electron-Cash-2.9.4.exe from https://electroncash.org/downloads/2.9.4/win-linux/

In the SHA1.Electron-Cash-2.9.4.exe.txt file in https://github.com/fyookball/keys-n-hashes/blob/master/sigs-and-sums/2.9.4/win-linux/ , the checksum is given as a7a780c049f26734dd9fb8ff6eb6646546bfa638  

Whereas when I find the SHA1 of the downloaded application (using HashMyFiles or IgorWare Hasher), it comes out to be 6618ca0ed201f2958212149e183063c7f1ba3d0

What's going wrong?

Also, the downloaded application is of 6MB? Should it be more?

I take it that you want to claim Bitcoin Cash, correct?
Just to be safe make sure to run and install the .exe on separate PC or sandbox, in case the wallet tries to steal your bitcoin.
And then, move your bitcoins into a new wallet before sweeping your current address for Bitcoin Cash.

That URL is correct, so the wallet should be legit, not sure why the checksum is different, try to contact the developer?
Edit: I was an idiot, didn't realize the size is different

you have either downloaded a wrong file or your file is corrupted (wasn't downloaded complete to the end). the installation file size is 31 MB (31,836k to be exact). try using a download manager to download it instead of your browser and make sure it completes correctly.
then try again with hashing the file and checking it.
