    Who will the first to break Anwar's 194?

    its hard to beleive it has been 10 years already since that great innings of 194 by Saeed Anwar against india in 1997. So now 10 years onwards who do you think is the first batsmens that will break that record?

    I think that Gayle or Herschelle would be among the top contenders, on their day.

    Gibbs, Jayasuriya, Ganguly or Ponting. Definitely could see a few huge scores in the WC against the minnows.

    It's really interesting, because despite all the super high scores (400+) and all the other one day records being broken, that Anwar's 194* still remains the highest ODI score. He was a very under rated player.

    Anyway, i'll say that if his world record does not get broken this world cup, that it will remain for a good 10 more years.

    The reason i say that, is if someone can't take advantage of the tiny grounds, and many games against 'associate nations', then it's unlikely to broken later on on larger grounds against better opposition.

    I think people forgot that the record was set against India not a minnow. I seen a lot of players get close to the record but get out cus they are bored of minnow attacks. I'll back someone to do it this world cup, but it wont be against a minnow, unless its say RTD doing it against Scotland.

    I think there should be a law that the minnows will always bat first . I hate the sneaky average boosters and flat track and minnow bullies !!!

    The day Gilly bats 50 overs he will score more than 200 with ease, and i have a feeling he might do that in this world cup against the likes of Scotland or Netherlands. Ponting or jayasuriya are my next best bet.

    yeah Gilli could do it but he would have to do it in this worldcup, because he is getting old.
