Anyways mate, sorry if I misinterpreted you, but when people start on about being a selfish batsman (i.e making slow runs, having a low strikerate etc.) my mind just goes straight to thinking that basically, batsmen people consider selfish are the ones who aren't taking unnecessary risks and losing their wicket cheaply all the time. Chanders has proved that he can attack when necessary, and he's also saved many matches for the Windies with his "selfish" batting.
Voted for KP, he is class above. Never enjoyed Sangakkara's batting. Sanga vs Chanderpaul will be better fight.
why do people think SL is full of flat tracks - usually they turn a mile by day three or they are soft green tops due to monsoonal conditions...
not scoring runs in some conditions doesn't make you a worse player than someone who scores everywhere - you have to be damned good in your own conditions to wind up with an average pushing 60.

SL pitches do get a rough deal I agree, but when their most popular ground is quite probably the flattest deck in the world, not hard to see why people have that impression.

get ready for a broken ****in' arm
OOH, Sanga has scored some more runs against Banga, count it against him, quick......
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Which is just so ****ing weird, IMHO.
I've also gone past annoyance and am flirting with amusement about this thread, surely not since the iliad of woes that was Dicko, has such a one-sided argument, gone on so long.

I do find it funny though. People say Sanga getting runs in SL is boosting on flat tracks, but then nothing of such is said for all of the batsman in the current New Zealand v England series. I'd also like to know why a side like England go to Sri Lanka and so regularly bat like headless chickens if the pitches are such roads too.
