    Sure 40+ now, but he'll soon settle into 35 mediocrity (if he gets a game with Freddie back). IMO, Bell is the best chance of a consitant 50+ batsman (if the Aussies don't shatter his confidence again).

    Thirty five is still pretty good for a cricketer who got out to Chris Gayle whilst playing for the spin. Gayle turns one ball ever millennium!

    Wow, he went against a second rate bowler and came out on top. Impressive, that. Let's see how he handles Warne (Warne, Murali being 1st rate, Kumble being 1.5 rate, Kaneria, Harbhajan being 2nd rate).

    Collingwood isn't a bad cricketer and is massivly underrated.

    and how is not being able to bat, with a team full of guys avging 40s
    i'd say that englands lack of good bowlers is a bigger problem then there batting.

    Collingwood isn't a very talented player to be honest, but if every player worked as bloody hard as he does, and used there given talent like him, then loads of bats could average more than 50. I really like Collingwood, and think that he should be in the Brisbane starting line up.

    Every side has a team full of batsman averaging 40's. In fact, those who don't average in the 40's (*COUGH* SINGH/KAIF *COUGH*) should be dropped.

    just face it, England has been really poor over the last few decades....there biggest problem being inconsistant I think.
    but this crop of players playing cricket at the moment, most definetely have the quality to average around 50.

    Yousuf and Younis is just a fraction away. Also Miandad from the recent past.

    As for SRL, Jayawardane is just a fraction away.

    Mohammad Yousuf (53.12) and few decent scores against the West Indies and Younis Khan will be averaging more than fifty.
