    Matthew Haydens, and not just because it came in a big game or because of it's speed but because it was some of the cleanest, hardest hitting of a cricket ball i have seen for some time. The shots he played were 4 and 6 on any ground in the world. He looked in absolutely immaculate touch, reminded me of him a few years back. Fantastic batting.

    Only 2 of those innings came against a quality attack. That innings was the fastest hundred in ODI history. It is a conclusion definitely foregone.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Haydos was the obvious choice because of sheer ease and comfort with which he scored his runs, so i have voted for him.

    But i would like to specially mention Clarkie's knock which was also excellent the way he paced his innings was great and good to see him coming good at no.4. Pity he missed out on a deserved hundred.

    Although Matthew Hayden's was the better innings and will likely be judged so, I have to say that I enjoyed watching Michael Clarke bat far more than I did with Hayden.

    Steady on. He's a good 30+ balls of that.

    Don't you find Clarke ugly to watch when he gets in slog mode?

    Not particularly, not as ugly as Hayden standing there and thumping the ball repeatedly over mid-on/midwicket. I think it's more entertaining to watch Clarke step away slightly and smote it over cover.

    One did not see Imran Nazir's and Chanderpaul's innings but only two of the five (the two Australians) faced a decent attack. I think Hayden was magnificent.

    I have never been reminded of Viv Richard's batting in such a vivid manner as i was by Hayden even though he is a left hander.

    For those who did not see Richards demolishing the best attacks in the world like a superman, just watch Haydens innings against South Africa through a mirror.
