    It's a bit like saying a 5 year old kid should have less sore muscles than than a 25 year old if they lifted weights that were equally difficult for their bodies' capabilities.
    Then he's just not talented enough. This isn't a schoolboy team where everyone is special. You are judged by your relative prowess.

    Man The Jacket can hit a ball. Serious shot here, good old Pakistan.

    If only Umar Gul was playing too.

    Yes, and just because he's slower, doesn't mean he's poor?

    Mick Lewis 434 game I believe. Don't think that has been topped.

    0-113 I think.

    Not at all. I'm saying that the speed he is bowling at does not excuse no-balls - irrespective of effort.

    Yeah agree there, think the ACSU need to investigate him.

    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

    Damn Afridi's knock was ridiculous entertainment.... how can you not love him? so unpredictable, but when he has a good day, boy is it fun to watch

    That six he hit which went out of the ground probably looked bigger than it was because of how tiny the stadium is but it was still obviously HUUUUUGE. Any measurements?

    A rare innings from Afridi. Next time you'll see this from him will be in another 2 years, so Afridi has ensured his spot in the side for the next 2 years and just in time for the WC. But in between that time, he will be as good as a number 11.

    Afridiís record for most number of sixes is never going to broken, is it?

    Has over 100 more than the Gayle, the closest active player to him and for someone like Dhoni to surpass him, MS would have to play 200+ ODIs more going by MS six to innings ratio.

    Great watching Afridi come off as he strikes the ball so cleanly and that inside out cover shot he has, only guys like Tendulkar can play that, serious shot.

    As for the game, only way South Africa have a chance is if AB and Hash perform and still the bowlers had trouble defending this. Steynís a great bowler but unless you are going to give him two slips or more all the time, he isnít taking a huge volume of wickets in ODIs, as the edges go for four. The vast majority of Steynís test wickets are caught behind yet he bowls in ODIs with only the keeper behind the bat, it doesnít make sense.
