Two of our batsmen are in the record books after the Sri Lanka series.

Kevin Pietersen passed 3000 runs in his 33rd test match, equalling the achievement of Herbert Sutcliffe.

Pietersen is also the only England batsman to reach 1000 runs in the year 2007. He is one of only 3 batsmen to reach this target, and is in 3rd place behind Kallis (1125) and Ganguly (1023), but KP has played more innings than them.

Alastair Cook's century gives him 7 test hundreds before his 23rd birthday (on Christmas Day). He is the only England player to do this. Ahead of him, Bradman and Tendulkar had made 8 centuries at the same age, and Cook equals the achievement of Javed Miandad.

Wasn't he always level with Viv Richards for 1000 & 2000 runs in terms of number of tests played to reach those milestones? I'd be interested to know how many it took Viv to reach 3000

With stats as impressive as that to call upon it's easy to see why Cook is touted as a future England captain. Of the players currently in the squad he's the only sensible alternative to MPV.

He's clearly going to be a very good opening batsman but I still don't see why that qualifies him to be the captain, although his name will keep coming up. But let's not have that discussion on this thread.

Nah, surely Bell is the best option.

Don't you start.

Isn't it enough that you introduce a wicket-keeper debate into every thread you visit?

I never talk about wicketkeeping. Anyway, am I not allowed to troll Psy now?

We can't have a captain who is a good fielder.

That wouldn't rule Cook out, which I presume was your point. Hussain was an excellent fielder though, in the covers; at slip for the spinner or under the helmet later on in his career, oddly. He wasn't captain by then though.

Yes a pity Hussain didn't take that simple catch when Smith was on 8 who then went on to make 250.

Wow. So they're level again. Proof, if needed, that KP is the white Viv Richards.

Total international runs in 2007 (tests and ODIs, excluding 20/20):

KP : 1896
Bell: 1857
Colly: 1829

Pietersen played about 7 or 8 ODIs fewer than the other two though (and still comes out top!) and is the only player to have reached 1000 in test matches, whereas Bell and Colly each have over 1000 in ODIs.


Edit
Posted before I saw FBU's similar but not identical post.

It seems FBU and I were thinking along the same lines, and posted at roughly the same time - I didn't see her post when I clicked the box.

Don't know about FBU but I got my figures from Cricinfo records for the year 2007 and added the test and ODI totals together myself using a pen and paper!

I am never rude about Collingwood, I think he and Bell are both good players at a similar level of achievement, as shown by these figures. I'm not saying who the WUM is in the exchanges with C5 but it ain't me!

I know that, but I reckon if we made a list of most ardent supporters of Ian you'd be fair high up and if we made a similar list for Paul Collingwood... well actually Collingwood5 would be on some kind of restraining order list.

As for mistletoe I've got some here although drink might have to be taken first.
