    Interesting to note the difference between Peitersen & Styris century celebrations

    A team man like Styris didn't go overboard when he reached three figures vs Sri Lanka yesterday. He was low key as his mind was clearly on his teams less than ideal situation...not his own personal milestone. It came up as he smashed the ball to the boundary in an attempt to get some quick added runs for his side towards the end

    Whereas Peitersen played slowly for his ton as the 50 overs drew to a close, ensuring he got it then celebrating like "he" had won the tournament. (I say he instead of "his team" as he would have been less animated than he was, if it were the latter)

    Then he proceeded to finally play a shot, got out...and turned and walked off as soon as he had hit the ball up in the air. Without regard to trying to cross with his partner, Nixon thus getting him the strike instead of the incoming Mahmood.

    Pietersen's ton was not one of his best. Far too slow from 50-100. I thought his celebration was a bit OTT but he was probably delighted he got one against Australia and wanted to rub it in to them. Another reason there was a difference is that Pietersen and Styris are completely different personalities. Styris is not as flamboyant as extroverted as KP

    I think it's interesting to note a pattern in BLE's names and guises. Sometimes it's actually a name like Prakesh, and other times, it's a name like Shane_Warne. Ingenious.

    In his own mind, sure.

    Oh and I guess I can also accept it being in the same way as when Harmisson was.

    What's so laughable about it? Harmison was the best bowler in the world at one point, wheres the problem with that?

    The fact that he wasn't is my main qualm.

    a freakish haul of 7-12 against a "dire" West Indies at their most hapless doesn't quite do it for me.

    In the same way Chris Gayle wasn't the best batsman when he got his 317.

    The rankings take into account the strength of the opposition, the pitch, the amount of runs scored in the match and other factors. You can't cheat the rankings.

    I actually said the same thing to PhoenixFire over MSN when Pieterson was celebrating. Don't much like that when your team is losing/on a losing course.
