    Read his latest biography and you'll find out why. His attitude of "if the ball's there to be hit I will hit it" often lead to his downfall but is also what lead to him being a very succesful and popular cricketer.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    IMO i think sehwag was talking about the UAE game, even if he didnt actually speak the words "it think i can get 200 against UAE".

    Robert Key's highest Test score is higher than the highest of either Mark Butcher, Michael Atherton, Nasser Hussain, Alec Stewart and Graham Thorpe.
    Anyone think he's a better batsman than them? Personally I don't think he even comes close.
    The best players don't always get the best scores.
    Sometimes a no-more-than good player (eg Malik) can put-in an outstanding performance, and that outstanding performance can reap reward few have come close to.
    wow... i learnt nothing new there. talk about stating the obvious. who has the fastest ODI hundred? afridi. i was merely commenting on the fact that you stated you werent at all suprised that malik had got a whopping score, even when he was batting at three, and the fact that he hasnt done a huge amount batting for Pakistan. whats your next prediction oh master...

    No, he was quite clearly talking about the upcoming Aussie series, isn't it obvious from when he was speaking?

    I assure everyone that it is going to be Mr. Ganguly who is going to acheive this magnificent feat & it is going to be in the next one year.

    Now dont me call me an astrologer when he gets one.

    Real Pakistani do you think that such a feat can be achieved ever by any pakistani.
    All positive feedback is welcome & may be directed to me. Just in case you have something negative to say, kindly write it on a clean sheet of paper and throw it in the dustbin. Cognitive dissonance is fatal !!

    on one of those rare occasions, i actually agree with you......
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Which of the following is more likely?

    Scenario 1:

    Sehwag on his own without being asked anything about a 200 says: I can get a 200 in this Asia cup seeing as India are playing UAE.

    Scenario 2:

    Reporter : Sehwag, are you capable of scoring a one-day double hundred?

    Sehwag: Yes, IF I bat for the full 50 overs. In fact a lot of batsmen can make a double hundred if they bat the full 50 overs.

    Reporter: Do you think you'll score it against a weaker side? (obviously referring to UAE)

    Sehwag: No opposition could be taken lightly. It just takes 1 ball to dismiss a batsman.

    Reporter goes back. Next day's headline: Sehwag warns UAE: 1st ODI 200

    (Note that these are the actual quotes of Sehwag)

    Yes, because coming in at 6 behind the Aussie top order he'll get plenty of chances to score 200 runs won't he?

    If Glen McGrath ever gets a bat in an ODI again he might do it too

    Realistically you think it would be Gilchrist or Ponting although Gilly's best days are probably behind him. Gayle has a slim chance as does someone like Vincent, Dhoni or Jayasuriya. I just can't see Sehwag doing it, nor can I see Flintoff. If Pietersen comes in early then why the hell not. My money would still be on Ponting although you could probably get some nice odds for Mohammad Ashraful.

    Best counter for that highest score argument? Jason Gillespie's a better batsman than Steve Waugh
    Stedders' Supported XI (in batting order)
    NJ Kruger, *SM Katich, LA Carseldine, MEK Hussey, Mohammad Ashraful, NT Broom, AA Noffke, +Mushfiqur Rahim, Mashrafe Mortaza, DE Bollinger, WAP Mendis.
