As well as being in the running for second highest run scorer in the year 2007 (nobody is going to catch Hayden with 1526 to date), Bell (1069) and Collingwood (1062) could overtake the English record for most runs in a calendar year. This is held by David Gower, who made 1086 runs in 1993, albeit from only 20 matches.

The thing is that this year England will have played 34 ODIs, more than ever before, so our players are up there in the records, both national and international. You can say, ah but look at their averages, blah blah - but they have still had to go out and score those runs or take those wickets.
