Afridi has the most runs out of all players with 250+ wickets after Kallis and Jayasuriya in ODIs with 5715
Thanks for the info. Seems like Kallis is alone in achieving 10 000 runs and 250 wickets in both formats
( 3 wickets away) and no other player is close. Must say, Jayasuriya has a very impressive ODI record !
Kallis might put some people to sleep but when you wake up, you'll realize that he has this incredible all-rounder's record that's not gonna be beaten anytime soon!
Should be a great match today with four very good spinners included in the teams. I think the team that plays the spinners the best and keeps the run-rate up during the middle overs has the best chance.
This tournament is so short and almost every game becomes a must win. With the exception of WI, every team has a very realistic change of taking the trophy. Still, home conditions and current form put SA in the lead.
