    Steve Waugh didn't reach 200 until his 76th Test. He never got there again for another 92.

    Scoring 158 is a great achievement. Doing it 3 times in a very young career is even better.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Collingwood double ton was in his 17th Test. That makes him more elite than Tendulkar and Steve Waugh then I guess... oh and lets not forget Wasim Akram and Gillespie.

    Robert Key did it in his ninth test, which makes him better than Collingwood and Jacques Rudolph, Matt Sinclair did it on debut which makes them two the best cricketers of all-time.

    IMO he is in a Satanistic cult and the number 158 has a dark significance.

    Indeed:

    6 = 1 + next number in Pietersen's score
    6 = 5 + previous number in Pietersen's score
    6 = 8 - amount of numbers preceding 8 in Pietersen's score

    Let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast!

    Wasn't it revealed that 666 is not the number of the beast?

    What an anticlimax...

    I think you're right, if my memory is right 616 was the devil's number.

    Curiously, I'm now on 168 career runs. Unfortunately I've been dismissed 30 times on the way to getting there, but...
