    Next Player To Score 10,000 Runs

    I was just thinking about this. Of the current players, Inzamam, Dravid, and Ponting all need just over 2000 runs to get there. I think due to his age Inzy won't quite get there. So, it's really out of Dravid and Ponting I feel. They should both get there, but who first? Also, Kallis needs just over 2500 runs. He could beat them to it.

    Ponting cus Australia play more matches in general, but then again Dravid and Kallis might get more chances to bat twice.

    Ponting, due to the amount of Tests Australia play per year.

    Cant say in time since no idea who is playing how many games, when. They need ..

    Imzy : 2045
    Dravid : 2106
    Ponting : 2062
    Kallis : 2580

    Ponting and Dravid will have it close as to how many games they will take from today to do it. I would back Dravid since...

    Dravid has scored at just over 66 per innings during last four calendar years ! Its an amazing record. Over last six years he has averaged 63 per innings. His worst year in this period being 2001 when he averaged 46.5 !!

    Ponting had a great year in 2005 but keeps having bad patches. Averaged 41 in 2004 and 38 in 2001. Of course, one could say that Dravid is "due" for a bad patch but with

    Inzy too had a great year this time but last year was ordinary. He may find it increasingly difficult to keep up.

    Kallis has had two fantastic years in succession but the gap between him and the others is not just 500 runs it is 20 %, that may beat him.

    I think it will be very tight between Dravid and Ponting. I'll go for Punter, since he's Australian.
    I bowl seam-ups and take the pace off the ball.

    Clearly its Gagan Khoda as he is the only player I can think of from Rajasthan! Or maybe Sanjeev Sharma. Left arm bowler who played for Rajasthan briefly and played international cricket ages ago.

    Chris Read or Stuart MacGill as they're the only current Internationals to have played for Devon.
