    I believe that in 2020, Prince EWS will still be a ****.

    If I win, I get to pick your avatar for 40 years, if you win then you get a signed picture of Richard from Prince EWS.

    Any takers?

    I get to personalise the message? If so, I'm taking this bet.

    Will get there by the end of the 3rd Test IMO.

    I also believe Kallis will eventually take the mantle, but am less confident to 'bet' on that.

    Even after taking away minnows (including Zimbabwe), which is stupid for aggregate runs anyway, you're still a long way behind buddy.

    Sachin (minus Zimbabwe and Bangladesh) 12775 runs
    Ponting (minus Zimbabwe and Bangladesh) 11783 runs.

    To be fair, removing them for aggregates is more relevant than removing them for averages.

    Sachin & Kallis WAGs! Continue to back this baby up.

    You can't just cancel it. Admit you are wrong and I will grant you a pardon.

    I'll bet that Alastair Cook, Kevin Pietersen and Ian Bell will all break the record for most runs (8900) and centuries (22) for England batsmen.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Roach, presuming he doesn't have a career threatening injury, will end up averaging under 27

    Ishant Sharma will bowl atleast 7 rank long-hops outside off-stump regardless of the conditions in every test match spell-which is atleast 3 overs long- he bowls from now to the end of eternity.

    There's something about Virat Kohli that bothers me a bit.. he seems to play with "hard hands". Not sure how he'll do against quality spin. Will probably nick a lot to slip as well.

    Hmm, technically speaking once one of them break it then there's a new record So you're expecting them to all out do one another?
