I don't understand why some people are so hung up on putting Saeed
Anwar's innings down. The bottom line is that he broke the world record.
The logic these people give is absolutely senseless. Do these
people mean to say that Viv Richards or any other great batsman for that
matter did not play on small grounds or with a runner. Or are they
implying that Saeed Anwar is not a competent batsmen. Saeed, as we all
know was the second highest scorer last year and has as many centuries in
One Day Cricket as Tendulkar. He has a batting average og almost 50 in
Tests as well.
The whole world is admiring this inning of Saeed's and here is
this bunch of people picking bones out of it. You are not a cricket fan if
you can't appreciate this inning. Most batsmen would have left the field
in the condition Saeed was in. These people do not appreciate that Saeed
was able to maintain his concentration for such a long time under such
Another thing. IMO Dravid is a very good batsman and yet again
there are people who don't recognise his class. I believe that he is a
very bright prospect for India.
