    I don't think it's quite as good as when Afridi hit that red-ball into a roof, embedding it, at Worcs that time.

    Because windows have been broken before... something lodging in a roof is a bit special.

    Neil Johnson's broken 1 in a ODI.
    And why does the level of cricket mean that to break a window is such an achievement (hardly see that it's really an achievement, anyway)?

    I'm sorry Richard but nobody has claimed it to be an achievement, James simply showed photos of a window broken by a Gilchrist six.

    I just thought it wierd that someone would claim lodging a ball in the roof as a great thing compared to smashing a window.

    lodged in the pavilion ? smashed a window ? whopee ding!
    The ball has been smashed OUTSIDE THE STADIUM quiete a few times in the past....so when you have people clearing the entire stadium-roof window,flag and all, what is the hoo-haa about lodging it in the roof or smashing a window ?
