    Also, I note Sachin Tendulkar has never gone over 900.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Note the use of the word OR in that statement. The games he scored runs in in that tour were high scoring ones.

    Tendulkar's career best is 898 and touched 890 last year too. In comparison Akram's highest is only 840. So the two cases are quite different.

    Of course this will be overlooked
    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

    I know full well it's 898 because I looked, but as that is less than the figure of 900 brought up by kyear I thought it quite an interesting thing to see, especially when 8 of his contemporaries have exceeded 900.

    What do you mean by it being overlooked?
