    Id give you 15-1 on Warner making a couple of 300 plus scores.


    Not so worried about $$ as Benchy will owe me 4K soon.

    Still haven't transferred me that m00lah. Bets are only confirmed once money is put down.

    Odds aren't fixed.

    Big call - are you sure he's got the concentration and technique?
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    As has been said before, Warner's technique, especially against pace, is much better than Sehwag's. He's one of the most technically capable young batsmen in Australia and the fact that he plays lots of shots doesn't detract from his technique in playing those shots. If he does have a couple of problems they're shot selection and - as you said - concentration. I don't think he's got a triple in him at the moment but I don't think it'd take significant changes to his game for him to get there.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    10-1 on Warner making one 300 plus score and I'm there...

    Yep, he made his 180 off 159 balls. When it happens, he will go from 200-300 in about 40 balls, so concentration won't be the issue!

    Lack of technique hasn't hindered someone like Graeme Smith from racking up big scores while staying at the crease for a long time. As much as it's a cliche, he's probably the classic example of a batsman who "knows his limitations" well enough not to be too ambitious at driving the ball through the off-side against say a James Anderson swinging the ball away from him.

    In other words, 'good technique' as a neccessity is overrated imo when it comes to making big scores - especially the last few years with pitches not offering much sideways movement. Shows why Sehwag and Hayden were so prolific at big hundreds in this era really.

    Maybe I am missing the context but if you are making a bet wouldn't you want longer odds (15-1)

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    He only wants it on him making one triple century. NUFAN was offering 15-1 on him making multiple.

    Yep. Would be reasonably comfortable with his potential to make one 300+. Not so confident that he'll make 2 or more.

    Just to clarify, I'm not actually going to accept the bet. Hadn't thought enough about the next batch of emerging cricketers-turn commentators.

    Seems to get on extremely well with the other Fox Sports commentators and obviously speaks well enough on the mic judging from today, so if the current lot are still there when he retires (which lets face it is extremely likely) and he wants a go at it, I reckon Blewy and Fleming will put in a good word.

    Thought I'd put this one out there while he's in the doldrums a bit so I might get a bite - $10 on Virat Kohli being ranked #1 in the ICC Test batting rankings at some stage during his career.
