    Yeah, never mind his Ashes exploits or his double ton against India to help England to number 1 in the world. He hasn't scored a ton against Bangladesh.

    It's a meaningful achievement definitely - but like with many achievements it's a function of both time, your opportunities to play everyone, and being consiststant.

    So at no point over the last 15-20 years (at least) can it be considered meaningful.

    Sangakarra's 150 s every country is pretty impressive I must say.

    It only becomes meaningless if you use it in a silly way. For example, if I use the argument that that Gary Kirsten has a century in every nation and Pietersen or Inzamam do not hence Kirsten >Pietersen and Inzamam, then it becomes meaningless and a silly argument, especially because Pietersen has a 99 against Bangladesh and Inzamam a 95* against South Africa.

    However, as an isolated achievement, it is a great achievement to have a century against every test playing nation of your time. Say someone like Marvan Attapattu, not a great player but he can always look back at that and feel good about himself..or his fans can feel good looking at that..whats wrong with that.

    Sanga does not have a century in every country but has a century against every country.
