    So good to see I am not the only one getting it wrong sometimes ...

    To start with I think he is a wonderful sportsman - now that counts 80% already.
    He has bags full of talent and he is a hard worker. Combine that with a humble attitude and a will to learn every day and you have the making of an all time great. One of my favourites right now without a doubt.
    yep awta
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Pretty happy with this.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Yeah, I don't expect him to age as well as some other players. Presently though, he is damn good.

    I just had a look at the ODI batting rankings and I noticed that Amla has crossed the 900+ barrier. he is currently on 901. my question is, is he the first player in odi histroy to achieve this?? no one in the top current 100 has a personal best of 900 or more.

    EDIT: just noticed that he is the 9th batsman to achieve this. Sir Viv has the all time best of 935.

    Amla's ODI record is just RIDICULOUS.

    -62 matches
    -Average touching on 60 (average actually is exactly 60 if you only include the full ODI status countries - basically an anti-minnow basher).
    -SR 91.72
    -Averages 35+ against every core OD team.
    -Averages 50 or more in every country he has played in (including all of the big ones), except Bangladesh.
    -An even better away record, but both excellent anyway.
    -Awesome conversion rate.

    I never knew his ODI record was that good. Absolutely insane.

    I'm irked by giving it the 'I played against him, my story' etc but played against Amla in his time in the SA u19s and you could tell he was a class above then. Never hit fielders, timed the tits off it, nice guy, he was always going to be a star. But this good? Wow.

    Absolutely nude chin. EDIT: Seems like it wasn't completely nude but not what it is now. No one else really kicked from that side but he more than made up for them.

    it's funny to me that both amla and trott have had exceptional starts to their careers. similar in that they are stoic type batsmen, especially in tests. Most of the successful ODI batsmen of the last 10-15 years have been much more flashy.

    In case you didn't notice, Amla has quietly gone on to become the fastest batsman to get 100 runs. Viv Richards is now a distant second.
    RIP Phil Hughes. Forever 63*

    My question is if his average will be brought back to the mean like Hussey and Pietersen.

    Obviously it will be back to something real like 47.

    We will be able to evaluate Amla, the ODI player only after he passes 150/200 ODIs.
