    Didn't India go through a period in the mid-90's where they played stuff all test cricket and ridiculous amounts of ODI's?
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Will he be as good as Tendulkar tho?

    I'd say almost definitely not, but he could conceivably play 160+ Tests which could get him to 15000 runs.

    As long as his average is around 48 I'lll be pretty happy. Doubt Smith can average that high.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Do we really think the frequency of test matches are going to increase?

    No IMO. Whether we like it or not, Twenty20 will have to fit into the schedule already, and we're starting to see the effects of playing so many games as it is. I actually think the frequency will decrease.

    Fair nuff.

    If he gets as good as Haydos, he'll score about 86 runs a test..meaning he needs to play about 175 test matches.

    At the rate of games he is playing annually (12) he needs to play about 14.6 years making him 36 the time he retires.

    Unlikely.

    At the rate he is currently scoring, about 79 runs a test he needs to play about 190 test matches. At this rate of games, he needs to play about 15.8 years making him over 37 the time he retired.

    Unlikelier.

    Just my point of view.

    As Prince said, I don't think we will see a great deal more Test cricket than we have in the last 10 years or so. With the emergence of Twenty20 and some cricket boards reliant on ODI profits, then I'd hazard a guess and say we may see even less Test cricket and more limited overs stuff.

    Thing with Cook is if he doesn't play many ODIs he can go on for ages in Test cricket, however with the English media and climate I'd be surprised if anyone could last that long. Can wear even the strongest down. Wont make 15000.

    If the Black Cap selectors realise that Jeetan Patel is our third best ODI bowler and play him more often, then he's in with a good chance. Certainly a quality off-spinner, but selection will be the key.

    I'd say that McCullum isn't a chance in hell to score an ODI ton, but in recent times when Jacob Oram, Dwayne Bravo and Justin Kemp have all notched up a century lately, then it's not completely out of the question.

    I think McCullum will be given ample opportunity under Bracewell to score one. Unwisely being constantly put up the order he's bound to eventually hit one. A very talented batsman, who just needs to calm down at the crease IMO, yet I have no real problems with the way he plays if stuck in his rightful place down the order.

    Jeeves deserves the wickets.

    Personally, I don't think McCullum is that talented as a batsman at all. As I said in the other thread, he creates the illusion of talent by attempting lots of shots, often off good balls. It usually causes his downfall but on the odd occassion it comes off, he looks great. It's nothing that any batsman couldn't do if he actually thought it would be a good idea, which it isn't.
