Just passed 12,000 test runs (in the quickest time - 224 innings), knocked up his 38th test century, and his 11th double century (one behind the world record held by Sir Donald Bradman). His average is a bees dick under 59. Amazing.

And it wasn't like it was a featherbed - team was 5-78 at one stage. He made 203 out of 350 odd.
One of the classiest batsmen I've ever seen, and a gentleman to boot.
Just awesome this bloke.

Would love a No.3 just half as good as he is in our side. Compare Watson's stats with Sanga and you get quite a giggle.

Compare Watson's stats with just about anyone (bowling or batting) and you get quite a giggle…

A new ODI record has been set by South Africa. Highest ever total 2/439 off 50 overs with Amla scoring 153*, Russouw 128, and De Villiers 149.

De Villiers 149 off 44 balls with 9 fours and 16 sixes. His hundred came up in 31 deliveries. FMD.

No matter how piss weak the Windies bowling was, or how hard a concrete block the pitch was, that is one phenomenal effort :shock: :shock: :shock:

I look forward to a day when a team scores 500, and every scoring shot is a reverse of everything conventional. Won't be long folks...

Windies are dead to cricket. It used to be their religion 70's & 80's. Then the school kids started shooting hoops and kicking soccer balls in the 90's.

The problem is, the West Indies isn't a nation. It's a group of island countries getting together to form a "national" team. There is a lot of bickering between Islands, and they aren't really united.

It's a shame.

My favourite part of that whole scorecard is the guy from WI who did get a crack and made 1 from 15 balls. You'd just about have to give it up.

Who likes Bangers & Mash? I thought the English do. I wonder how it tastes for them at the moment?

What an engrossing conclusion. Good luck to the Deshi's! [-o<
