    The greatest ODI performance ever?

    Is Afridi's 76 not out off 55 balls on one of the most difficult pitches for batting along with a 7 wicket haul the best ODI performance ever?
    The only other batsmen to reach a decent score was Misbah who took 121 balls to score 52 runs, for WI, the top scorer Samuels, consumed 75 deliveries for his 25. Lendl Simmons 10 runs in 46 deliveries also deserves a special mention.
    Is this your homework Larry?

    in and of itself perhaps......given that it was such a meaningless series then in context perhaps not
    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

    Centuries in WC finals are better ODI performances but on pure stats, it is tough to beat this one..

    I think series relevance is given way too much importance wrt ODIs. So what if it's a meaningless 7 match ODI series, just watch the game, and judge for yourself based on the quality of bowling, the quality of the batting, the conditions and the other basic criteria we use. I agree that delivering in pressure situations demands more respect, but it's unfair to give that much extra weightage to performances in WCs without looking at the overall quality of the game itself.

    yeah it is a big injustice to Boom Boom if even after such a performance we still need to argue the greatest allround ODI Performance.. I mean, this is the Bradman of ODI all round performances

    Viv Richard's 189 runs against England in 1984 (Old Trafford) was pretty impressive. The team total was 272, and the next highest score was 26 by Eldine Baptiste;

    Kapil Dev's 175 against Zimbabwe in the 1983 World Cup was also impressive. He came in with the score at 4/9, then 7/78. Final Indian total was 266;

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I think this performance by Tendulkar is up there.

    Big occassion, the quarter-final of basically the first Champions Trophy and good opposition, Australia albeit without Warne and McGrath

    141 with the bat and 4/38 with the ball including the wickets of Steve Waugh, Bevan and Martyn.

    Tendulkar's 143 and 134 at Sharjah against Australia, the century by Gibbs in the great chase, Ponting's century in the WC final and Warne against SA in the WC semis are few things which stay on mind..
    But as an allround performance, Afridi trumps all..

    I might be a tad biased, but KP's 110* against New Zealand at Chester-Le-Street in 2008 is right up there for me. It was one of the best examples of KP at the peak of his powers. He absolutely destroyed the New Zealand attack, and took the game away from them. It was one of the first time's he'd brought out the switch hit and used it with success. Superb knock, probably his best in ODi's. It was chanceless, with the only times he came close to being out being a couple of mis-timed pull shots, with one of them dropping short of the fielder, and one coming off the inside edge and flying for four.

    Virat Kohli's fastest innings against Sri Lanka with score of 133 in just 83 balls. This match is created record of fastest run chasing of India with a help of great "Virat Kohli."

    How about a century and 3-42 in a WC final. Aravinda has a shout for the title.

    Dave Callaghan scoted 169 and then took 3-32 against NZ IIRC. Must be up there.
    Diuretics are used to look good at TV shows

    I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran
