    No English batsmen to cross 5000 ODI runs?

    There is no English batsmen who has ever crossed 5000 ODI runs in his career, Currently Paul Collingwood is getting close with 4550 runs.

    Thanks for informing me about that. It ensures that when Colly achieves this milestone I can start a thread about it. Possibly comparing him to Bevan.

    Why did England suddenly lose interest in ODI's?

    England made the finals in 3 of the first 5 world cups and the semis in the other 2.

    I blame Margaret Thatcher.

    We don't play enough games to accumulate the same amount of runs as players from the Indian sub=continent.

    No need for insults when the poster's just replying to the intended topic.

    Is saying someone's stating the obvious really classed as abuse (have always said "abuse" not "insult" is the appropriate term, as insults are taken not given) these days? Shame if so.

    The opening post in this thread is stating the obvious - that reply was stating the obvious. That fact was pointed-out on the counts of both posters, don't really see why "really Captain Obvious?" is any different to "Thanks for informing me about that." Is it because a noun was involved and "captain obvious" is seen as name-calling?

    IMO this thread serves no worthwhile purpose. Is that abuse now as well?

    Crap man that struck me and yet they can muster up a really good ODI team most of the time. But bear in mind that most of them are just young players tbh...

    Umm... no, they can't. England haven't had a remotely good ODI team for 8-9 years now.

    Won away to Australia, Sri Lanka, South Africa. Hammered South Africa at home, beat India at home, cbf thinking of any more.

    Of course, we've also been pasted by NZ,India and Australia. But you don't win the series we have done without a 'remotely good' team.

    I think you do. None of those victories were what I'd call victories over quality sides. And BTW the England team which featured in South Africa is for me notably the best England ODI team since 2001 - and it's still not that good.

    South Africa pasted Australia 4-1 in consecutive series.

    Victory in Australia came against the side that won the World Cup 3 months later (granted, England were absolutely dire at the start of the CB series).

    Victory in Sri Lanka against a side who were runners up in the World Cup.

    Interesting definition of "quality sides."
