    that Virat Kohli

    Virat Kohli got a century. Again. He now has 25 ODI centuries. And he's the quickest to reach the mark, taking only 162 innings. That's incredible! And averages over 50. Is he a guaranteed pick in the ATG ODI team now?

    Who is second to him in the centuries tab in this generation? It's a large gap even though he's got 1 year headstart. I reckon KW will shorten the gap and will end up second best.

    He's a contender. But there's also Viv, Ponting and AB DeVilliers to contend for those #3 - #5 spots

    He's 2nd among batsmen with 10 or more centuries, in terms of dismissal per century. It's also incredible how far ahead the 3 modern greats Amla, Kohli and AB are ahead of the rest

    Actually Amla is a decent shout to be Tendulkar's opening partner in an ATG ODI XI.

    Amla
    Tendulkar
    Kohli
    Viv
    Bevan
    Dhoni
    Klusener

    - this is a solid top 7

    By 'Akbar' do you mean 'Akram'? Because that's who I'd have at 8 in that side.

    Williamson will struggle to finish with 25 tons in his career.

    this. Comparing Williamson to Kohli in ODIs is a massive stretch.

    Kohli's in his own class.

    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
