    Will Kallis now overtake Sachin?

    Sorry for yet another Sachin thread, but this is a worthwhile question in my opinion.

    I knew Sachin would fight tooth-and-nail to outlive Ponting, but Kallis always hinted at outlasting the little man. He looks like someone who can do a Gooch and play into his 40s.

    For what it's worth, I think it would be a bit of a shame if Kallis overtakes SRT in the runs or centuries stakes, because despite Kallis' great achievements, SRT is the greater batsman.
    World XI Since 1990 -

    1. Gooch 2. Dravid 3. Ponting 4. Tendulkar 5. Lara 6. Kallis 7. Gilchrist 8. Akram 9. Warne 10. Ambrose 11. McGrath

    Jeez the Tendulkar threads are going overboard

    Anyway, I take great offence to your statement that it would be a shame if kallis got the record. If he gets there he deserves it, plain and simple. No use getting worked up about it anyway because kallis getting the record wouldn't change the minds of those people who think Tendulkar is better. Not if he bats till he's 55 and gets 25000 runs, anyway

    Do you mean a Sachin sub-forum; or a forum for sub-people?

    If he plays till he's 42, he's going to have to score ~700 runs a year. I guess it's possible but I doubt he'll get there. If he does it'll be 22 years of Test cricket for him, which is pretty awesome as well.

    Sure, and 8 centuries in 4 years isn't out the question.

    The beauty of Kallis and why he was always a bigger threat to Tendulkar's runs record than Ponting imo is because his game is based so much around his technique rather than his eye. If he can keep going he's ever chance, but Kallis will have his Ponting, Dravid, Tendulkar moment and collapse soon. Its inevitable.

    You are making huge assumptions. Let's first wait for Kallis to regain his form.

    No. Nooooooooooooo. Nope.
    This was a serious post:
