    I always thought it was funny that Bevans highest ever ODI ton was only 108. I fully understand why mind you, middle order bat in a strong team and only got 6 tons anyway. Wanted to look at some other similar examples

    Saleem Malik got 5 ODI tons with a best of 102. Now that's throwing it away after 3 figures


    Kallis got 17 tons in ODIs for a best of only 139. One of the few legendary top order bats to not get a 150

    Kallis probably ran out of time.

    Bevan did make that 185* against a full-strength Asia XI, which was probably a better attack than you'd face in almost any ODI

    That exhibition game has sort of become glorified like a World Cup final on here. Didn't OS post that Akram was bowling with a tennis ball or something for part of it?

    lol not sure where you got that from but I've watched extended highlights and it absolutely looked like a proper match. Strong teams too. Well the Asian team was a lot stronger, ROW had a few random hacks in there

    Vaguely remember him posting something along those lines, my memory isn't the most reliable though

    He bowled an over or two with a tennis ball for a laugh. Not that it dis-counts the Bevan innings entirely or anything but still.

    Wasn't it the very first ball of the innings? Not an actual full over when the game was in the balance


    I'm not sure though I haven't seen full highlights

    Bevan's highlights for reference:

    looked like quality bowling

    Yeah thought so. So it wasn't even counted as a legal delivery. OS made it seem like Bevans side got to face a couple of legit overs from a tennis ball in the heat of the contest

    I think they might have still counted it as the first ball of the innings. Don't think it really matters either way though.

    Bigger discrepancy is how Nantie Nayward, Andy Caddick, Neil Johnson and Franklin Rose were playing in a "World XI"

    Johnson was pretty good around that time tbf (had a superb '99 World Cup), but the others are bizarre selections.

    What a joke. Should be regarded as no more than a warm up imo.

    Still yet to be convinced Bevan isn’t vastly overrated.
