    50* 22 balls told you he could hit.

    Second fastest 50 ever by an Australian by the way.

    Are you watching this Age ??

    haha well now hes gonna have to bat like that more often, now that hes shown he CAN ACTUALLY SCORE FAST


    loved Brett Lees spell, beat the bat 22 times and didn't get a wicket, too good for the Bangladeshi's te get bat on...

    I agree, bevan is SO slow. Anyway, my apologies again for my unfortunate Martyn "Boring" comments.

    I Know Greg Chappell was counting the times Lee beat the bat I though that was funny.

    I hope Lee bowls like that more often and does not get despondent because he did not get any wicket's becuase that about the best he has ever bowled.

    I think it's signifigant that he only bowled 2 yorkers and 5 bouncers and the rest were good line and length it's usualy the other way around.

    Leave Bevan alone, he's by far and away Australia's best 1 day batsman. how many times have we been in the situation when australia have looked like getting taken up the bum and he comes out and saves us. Who cares if he stole marto's century. the selectors have stolen 20 test match centuries off bevan by not lletting him play

    Wasn't Martyn's one-day strike rate up in the 80's even before this innings??

    It certainly wasn't slow. He got Langer syndrome... no matter how fast he scores, people always consider him a slow grafter...
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I think Bevan shouldn't be accused. Sure he's not the fastest scorer, but think how many times he has saved Australia's bum. He doesnt have an average of 54 for nuttin.

    As for Martyn, he's a bloody legend. He's shown hes capable.

    Witch is weird because unlike Langer Martyn looks fantastic when he bats. Now that mark Waugh has gone he is our most elegent batsman.

    You cant associate lack off power with him ether at least not through the offside. I have never seen anyone hit the back foot cover drive harder than Martyn can.

    I've never seen Bevan open before. Symonds opened for Kent a few times in the 20Twenty this year.

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    Dont accuse Langer, he's good. Bevan is good to.

    As for Symonds, he's bad
