    And we don't have to slavishly follow what he thinks

    Otherwise, shut the forum down if its purpose is not to give your own view

    Haha, this is David Warner, remember? Of course he would. He's not smart enough to squash a personal opinion for sake of doing what's right.

    No one's denying your right to an opinion. You have absolute right. We're just saying we disagree.

    What do you think he's going to say..."no I want to go for the record"

    If so, one has no idea about how cricketers act in a group environment.

    That was very Shakespearian of you, that last sentence.

    No, he wouldn't say that. Although he as much as anyone is capable of it. He's done dumber things.

    But just be aware that even if he wouldn't say it, that doesn't mean you're right that he was thinking it. Equally he could have been saying it with genuine honesty.

    Its a strange argument when you are relying on what someone hasn't said to justify it. Doesn't matter anyway. His ambitions are secondary to the team's goals. He'd look a dick if he did complain and he'd know it. He's got alot of making up to do. There's no way he's going to make a statement placing his ambition above a captain's declaration. Which means he accepts it despite what his private feelings may be.

    No one reckons anyone has to slavishly follow what others think. When there are differing povs other people reading them will just come down on one side or the other.

    Yeah, also I think Warney got his 600th wicket maybe in Chennai, not exactly the record. My memory is failing me, cannot recollect if it was the record or 600th wicket that he got there.


    EDIT: He did go past Murali at Chennai, with the wicket of Irfan Pathan. 533rd wicket. Thanks Google.

    If day 3 had have had as much rain as expected, or even more rain, the match would have finished with less than a session left if the batting went exactly the same. And this was after the follow on was enforced.

    Now think if even one or two more batsmen had have hit a half century. Pakistan might have scraped out a draw if Paine didn't declare when he did. It's only with the benefit of hindsight that one can say Warner should have gone for the record.

    Think about how selfish you would have to be to score 400 in a (rain affected) draw when you could have won.

    I don't think there would've been a result in that Antigua test, but the general consensus was that innings became pointless and I remember even journalists remarking that it probably won't ever be broken because of that.

    All the complaining about the crowds on day 4 of the utter thrashing look a bit silly when AB Field sells out for the WBBL final.
