    Pieterson vs Warne

    A commentator on the radio made the comment that Pieterson vs Warne was now surely the premier one-on-one duel to watch in the sport, taking the place of previous great rivalries like Tendaulkar/Lara-Warne etc.

    What do people reckon, and how do you score the rivalry so far this series?

    To be fair, Warne is probably a little past his best, so it's not exactly all it could have been. I'm inclined to agree though. England and Australia are the best teams in the world at the moment, and Warne and Pietersen have plenty going on with their rivalry, and you'll rarely see such a fascinating contest. It was even interesting when Pietersen was bowling to Warne.

    McGrath and Lara was always my favourite, but neither of them are quite the players they used to be and they'll probably only meet in tests once more, if that.

    Pietersen is ahead in the battle for this series, and I'd call it pretty close last Ashes. Pietersen got on top of him a few times, but Warne also got his wicket more than once.

    Was thinking of making this thread. Highlight of the series so far.

    2-1 to Pietersen IMO (for this series).

    I suspect however, if you asked Pieterson which "one" he would least liked to have lost, today's dig would have been it.

    Warne is going to retire soon enough so this rivalry won't last long enough to be called a classic imo.

    How many of the great rivalries that people talk about encompass more than two or three five match series anyway? There's every chance Warne might hold on until 2009 - even if he doesn't the 2005 series plus this one are sufficient for it to be remembered.

    its def the best rivavlry right now, its really fun to watch because they both have agressive and positive body language too
    unlike the shoaib and tendulkar rivalry where sachin barely ever said a word, he didnt have to really his bat did the talking

    but i think rivavlries need some word exchanges and aggresive gestures, lara vs kaneria is another good one going on right now though

    Warne playing at 40? Don't think it would be possible.

    Don't see any reason why not to be honest.

    No - Advanced Hair fixed that and now his hair is as thick and luxurious as an English greentop.

    Seriously, is there any sound reason to say he couldn't bowl til he's 40?
