    Sobers' record safe

    Ian Bell was all set to repeat Sobers' feat of scoring 6 sixers in an over (or atleast 5 sixers and a three) at Chester-le-Street yesterday, but for Sangakkara effected a run-out and saved his team from such an ignominy. Wondering why? Especially, when it comes from me, you have every right to wonder, but that's the only way he could have reached a hundred yesterday. But the writer at CricInfo believes so, as Strauss was too worried about World Cup plans. By the way, is there anyone here who knows if England had a plan for the World Cup? I thought, they just wanted to retain the Ashes and not worry about the World Cup especially with 10 of the 11 spots sealed for World Cup.

    5 sledge(s):

    That's actually only four sixes away from a century, Ganesh. If he hit five sixes and a three, he'd have 110.

    England's ODI plan can only be hoping that the opposition rest key players for their group matches at the World Cup, having rightly considered England to be minnows.

    Then it'd be a good idea to bring back Ganguly, given the way he scored against minnows in 2003 :) Assuming India and England do qualify from their first round games [perhaps not a sure thing given the way England're playing onedayers :)], then they face each other in the second round round-robin.

    Irfan Pathan will be a certainty, then - he is the minnow-basher extraordinaire.

    Good timing that, Geoff. I was planning a post on how he really shouldn't be considered a specialist bowler at all henceforth and probably even just a one-day specialist!
