England. The second ODI was England's first ODI victory in Sri Lanka ever, so winning the next two consecutive matches was obviously record-breaking as well.

The series win was the first for England in the sub-continent since 1987.


GBG and AH have pointed out that both these assertions are incorrect. Not the first ODI win by England in SL, but the first since 1981-2. Likewise not the first series win on the sub-continent since 1987 because England beat Bangladesh 3-0 in 2003/4.

I think it is safe to claim that it is England's first ODI series victory over Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka.

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.

You do still have to score runs or take wickets but it certainly helps if you can spread them out over X amount of games

But some players have had that amount of games and still not scored the runs or taken the wickets.

David Gower set that record of 1086 runs in 1993 and nobody has come near it since then, even though England have usually played more than 20 matches.

I thought England beat Bangladesh 3-0 in 2003/04?

Not quite the first victory ever- England won a match in 1981-82, when (among other batting performances) Geoff Cook got 28.

I am guilty of accepting what the commentators said without checking up. Sky text is still saying "first series win by England on the sub-continent since 1987" but I noticed that in the Telegraph this morning they refer to the "first major series win for 20 years". Nobody has mentioned the match AH refers to. SL won the second of the 2 match series so it is at least true that England has never won an ODI series in Sri Lanka.

Thanks for putting us right.

The claim was specifically about the sub-continent, which would mean India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Zaheer Khan has taken another wicket v. Pakistan, bringing him level with Anderson and McGrath as leading ODI wicket takers of 2007, and on course to overtake them.

He has 13 overs to do it in. I was hoping they would drop him and bring Sreesanth in.

(Anderson still has bowled the most maidens but Pollock will overtake him)

Khan leading wicket taker 2007 - 40 wickets.
I think the only bowlers that could pass that look like Bracken, Hogg and Vettori.
Ganguly takes his 100th ODI wicket.
Khan gets 200.

Panesar has three test matches to play before the year end. How many do South Africa have left?

In that case, with one innings of hapless New Zealanders still left, 10+ more wickets for Steyn I'd say
