Default Bevan=Bradman?

This week Michael Bevan hit his 8th century of the domestic summer taking his run tally to over 1400 and stretched his average further over 100. Is there any stopping him? Tasmania sure did well to buy him.

I was one of few who didn't like Bevan and called for him to be dropped for years. However when he's in form and determined he's great. I'll never forget his 100 against New Zealand to pull off a dramatic victory from a lost situation.

There is no way you can compare Bevan to Bradman. Bradman's closest rival isTendulkar . And there is no way Bevan is better than tendulkar. When Bradman scoers he destroys teh bowling. Getting a century in every 3 tests.

Although Bevan is playing really well right now he is nothing compared to Bradman,.

Did you seriously think I was saying Bevan is better than Bradman? No way in the world, I was just commenting on his Bradman-like season

I personally think Michael Bevan was one of the best players in one day cricket. He was the first specialized one day cricketer. Remember that innings he played in dhaka of 184 against the Asian XI. Outstanding innings. When he is in form it is impossible to get him out. He can win the toughest of matches. He hasone of the best average of one day batting. Most of the time he would finish his innings not out.

Oh i see what you are trying to say. The title confused me. It showed that you thought Bevan was comparable to Bradman.

You dont know Tendulkar.......... Thats something i hav never heard before.

He is Indias best batsman (not now but still...). HE has 34 centuries. Almost got 35..... Just go to cricinfo statsguru and type tendulkar and you will find everything.

Bevan's prowess is his mental strength and uncanny habit of winning one-day matches. I think his flaw of not playing short-pitched bowling was magnified by media and thus the selectors transformed him into a pure one-day player. I'm sure he would've been a valuable asset to the Australian Test squad- although the question is, who would you have dropped at that time?
Australia is a country brimming with talented players so it was tough for Bevan to get into the team at that time!
But it was an incredible decision to move to Tasmania becoz since Punter is away for most of the season they require a strong leader to lead the team, even though Di Venuto has tremendous experience.

YEs it was good of Bevan to move to Tasmania.


There is no one in the Aussie team to drop for Bevan. Lehmann was already dropped. Aussies are trying to get new young players for matches after WC2007

No way that Bevan should be in the test team. The selectors are doing the right thing looking to the future and Clarke and Katich have done well. Going on current form it's only fair that Bevan should feature in the 2007 World Cup.

Why was he dropped from the Australian ODI Team? Does anyone know the circumstances? Does he still have a contract with Cricket Australia?

really would like to know about him...waiting for more info...

There were no circumstances. He wasnt in good form so they opted for a younger player.

Bevan's dropping was right, he was in terrible form, couldn't hit the ball in runchases. If he can't do what he's good for what's the point having him at all. He'd been given a few chances and his contract should have been terminated earlier

After his contract was terminated it's been a complete turn-around so now I think he should get a new contract for 2005.

I doubt Bevan will get another contract. Australia is most likely trying t get some new YOUNG players as most of there players are old.
