    17 fours, 1 six

    121 from 194 balls
    17 fours
    62.37 SR
    yeah he is way more inclined to be aggresive than he is deffensive these days.

    He even scored a hundered for WA off about 70 balls last season.

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Based on what? His List A record isn't outstanding.

    But he hasn't had a chance to show what he has at this level yet.

    Well if he has got a poor record at a much lower level then why would he do better in ODI's.

    As those stats show?? My God, after 4 games, Michael Clarke was averaging 208. If we're gonna pigeon-hole a player after 4 matches, then I've been right all along: He is the best!

    Doesn't always work that way, of course.

    Michael Vaughan, Marcus Trescothick, Hamish Marshall, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Steve Harmison...
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    richardson has a very simple strategy as batsman....block.block.block.(block)to the power100.coverdrive.block.block.coverdrive.block.b lock.flick.block.block.
    and its quite simple that as an odi player with such a limited variety of shots he is not going to get anywhere. its no surprise he said that he wished he were an adam gilchrist.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    the thing with butcher is that he drops more than half the catches that come his way....clearly in ODIs you have to be at least a decent fielder to be able to make the side.

    Yet not as good as the average of Michael Kasprowicz!

    Neither is Strauss or Vaughan. And I thought you enjoyed England's random selection policy with no regard for county performances.
