375?
BLARA 375 766 538 45 0

Hayden needs a little over 100. Yep, he can do it. If not he can challenge Taylor and get the Aussie record.

Passed Bradman 270.

I find it absolutely ludicrous that the 5th wicket partnership is between batters whose averages are 55.98(Hayden) and 59.06(Gillchrist).

They should just give the Australians honorary ODI and test worldcups for the next 20 years and let the rest of the teams play among themselves.

"Along the way he surpassed his previous highest score of 203 in Chennai in 2000-01, took 50 balls to move from 150 to 200, and 29 balls from 200 to 250."


Destructive is an inadequate term.

ML Hayden (LHB) runs 271 338, strike rate 80.18 . what was Lara's strike rate?

I wish I could watch this great innings.

Also why are they only showing India and NZ series on www.willow.tv. why dont they broadcast Pak-SA, Aus-Zim and BD-Eng. :( :(

I am kinda interested to see what Lara himself will do when he plays Zimbabwe for the first time in a few weeks.

Now Gillchrist is on a roll.

69 off 56 balls.

This is a massacre of unseen proportions.

Gilchrist becomes the first(?) modern day batsman(barring Smith), to have an average of 60+

This is actually quite sad come to think of it. Sir Len scored his 364 not out against a great Australian side in 1938 at the Oval. Hayden gets to do it at home against a weakened Zimbabwe. Oh well, such is the modern game!

Arnab
October 10, 2003, 01:29 AM
Well if aus dont declare, Hayden will probably score 500 against this side.

Sham

If Hayden scores 400, how sad will that be? No one is gonna break that for another 10-15 years!

How great was English attack against Lara's 375? that too probably was crappy bowling...

and ofcourse good job hayden!

The Aussies have racked up 731/5 in day 2!!!!! rr 4.97......I have no doubt in my mind we bowled better than this....I still remember how we really turned the screws on in the first test which prompted Steve Waugh to say that any lesser team than them would have lost quite a few more wickets! Makes one appreciate their performance even more now. Having said that, I feel really sorry for Zims....poor guys! They will prolly try and make a comeback in the second test.

The Aussies are just AWESOME... "sends-shiver-down-my-spine" type awesome :P

The ratings will reflect the weakness of bowling attack. Hayden is about 60 points below Lara now. But still will take over I think.

HAYDOS YOU LITTLE RIPPER!!! I LOVE YOU!!! But he denied me of an autograph on numerous occasions. I got such a shock when i came back from school to see him on 326. I watched for ages but eventually I was forced to go out and get cricket shoes (Puma Cell). I ended up listening to it on the store radio

Dileep has written an article about it, comparing Hayden's achievement with contemporary great batters. It's interesting how Vaughan, Dravid and Inzamam make the list, but Lara's recent achievements are completely blacked out. Interesting. :)

I think last night quite a few of us sensed that it was a done deal, me for one.
The magnanimous act was the declaration. Mark Taylor declared rather than beat Australia's record. For this I respect them. Sportsmanship and a calculated move to seal a win. You gotta get the other team in at the right psychological moment. Matt Hayden got his chance and that was necessary to prove a thing or two to detractors about this Australian side.
