    Damn that's ridiculous ... a double century in boundaries itself. I'm interested to know who the bowlers were.

    Karthik, who had ended Tuesday unbeaten on 251, propelled his side to 660 for one declared - a record for the highest total in the first division. Rovers, however, couldn't force victory.

    Selfish much?

    Strange. While he was in the India side they probably didn't let him near the domestic scene, yet here he is smashing clubbies all over the shop.

    He, or his captain, should have declared early on. It just shows cricket's preoccupation with the individual performance over the team performance.

    As was shown in another thread when someone was saying how good Lara's 400 was.

    I dont think the preoccupation is throughout cricket though. Just certain people and groups with certain mentality.

    I still think for most, that the win is more important than the individual performance.

    So everyone in this thread who has called Karthik selfish also must admit that Lara 400* was selfish.


    I think both of them were selfish.

    Lara's was selfish, but it was the world Test record. Karthik's will just appear in the 'highest scores in minor cricket' section of Wisden. It is not a great performance to flog club bowlers all around the park.

    400 is a 400

    I agree with you at the end there, but I think that the prevalence of relative statistics in cricket means that we will have the individual performance often coming ahead of the team performance. In football, for example, there is only one really relevant individual statistic: the goalscorer. All other stats, whether compiled by Opta or whatever, are fairly irrelevant and carry zero prestige. However in cricket you might prefer chasing 10 wickets in an innings, or a triple hundred, or most wickets in a calendar month, than win a game. I am unlikely to ever score a fifty. If my captain declared with me on 49, for the good of the team, I would be gutted. I would still be gutted even if we won because of the decision.

    I think of all cricket's records, Lara's two records perhaps the ones you can be excused from chasing down regardless of the match situation.
