    Adam Gilchrist is pretty good under pressure, big performances in World Cup finals.

    I'd say Harmison too as one of the worst. His technique doesn't exactly lend itself to being good in pressure situations.

    Yeah right. Failing to get 40 odd in two innings on a flat track and not beat Javeds record puts him right up there with the best doesn't it?

    If only he'd eaten less chappaties and run a few more singles, eh?

    There wasn't any game pressure though, just a personal record. It's completely different.

    Justin Langer then as well. That was incredible too.

    The funiest sledge came from that game was an unnamed Pakistani player shouted at Langer: "You're not good enough for our second XI". It is in Steve Waugh's travel diary at the time if you want to check the quote.

    His innings wasn't the same calibre of Gilchrist's though, while still being a fine knock.

    I mean just imagine such a lousy handler of pressure and this is what he does. International cricket sounds like a stroll in the park by a seventy year old lady in hijab...

    Add to that a billion arm chair critics who think they would have done better...

    Maybe it is cricket punditry that comes so easy.....
