    Pietersen's start to his oneday career...

    I know its only early days and he's only played 11 matches, but has anyone statistically speaking made a more impressive (almost freakish) start to their oneday batting career than Kevin Pietersen.....

    M Runs Ave 100s 50s s/rate

    11 558 139.5 3 2 100.72

    I doubt even Bevan made a start quite like this !!!

    No. I think the next best would probably be Viv Richards. Pietersen was the quickest to 500 runs in history. Michael Clarke might be better than Viv. I'll do a bit of research on Cricinfo if you like. Just wait there.

    Atherton never had too many problems scoring runs in ODIs, he was just a bit too slow.

    Nope, what I'm worried about is there just has to be a really, really barren... Symondsesque... spell coming-up sometime soon.
    I'd hate for him to have pasted Ntini and Nel when he could have been bashing Lee, Hogg and Kasprowicz... and I mean really hate it.

    He was always unfairly thought of as not an ODI player IMO.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    There's no disputing he was too slow of times, though there were certainly plenty worse players.
