i dont think that is a sure thing...of the scores in ODI which have come pretty close to 200,most of them are vs fully fledged,and in a lot of them, strong teams.
And the way Ponting was batting in the World Cup final,maybe if he had batted for say 8 or 9 more overs, he may well have broken the 200 barrier.
For me, I think Gilchrist is in the best position to do it, that game vs USA in a couple of months looks pretty ripe for it
