I meant RR; not RPO.

***y hell!

Gayle - 90 off 60 balls at 150 S/R with 18 fours and a six.

And you thought Laxman and Sehwag score a lot of boundaries.  Even Gilchrist
probably hasn't done this.

1st Test at Mumbai, IND v AUS 2000-01.  Gilchrist reached his 100 from
84 balls with 15 4s and 4 6s ... marginally outside Gayle's pace, but
we are yet to see Gayle score the fastest DOUBLE century in Test
history (nor see Astle better it before the ink is dry).

Not as fast, but just as brilliant, was Gilly's hundred at Edgbaston
in 2001, with the ton brought up by an uppercut over the WK to the
long-stop boundary.

Congratulations to Gayle, and I hope he goes on with it, but
comparisons with the Gilchrists of the game are a little early.

Gilchrist double hundred was good but it was not in the same league as
Astle's which was beyond explosive.

Give your biases a rest for a second and look at this objectively.  Since we
are talking about fast scoring let's talk about ODIs.  You seem to imply as
if Gilchrist is in a totally different league than Gayle and the latter has
a long way to go to match him.  Unfortunately, you are badly mistaken.

What is Gayle's position in the PwC ODI batting ratings?  Second - just
behind Tendulkar.

What is Gilly's position there.  Fifth.

What is Gayle's PwC score?  803.

Gilly's?  755.  Gilly's all-time best?  767.

Gayle's ODI batting average:  40.14

Gilly's?  35.04

Gayle's ODI centuries:  7 in 81 innings

Gilly?  9 in 171 innings

Conclusion:  If anyone of these two should be considered a more explsoive
batsman, it is Gayle.  Not Gilly.

Case Closed.

Next time get your facts right, Mister. :)

Let's not.  We were in FACT talking about TEST BATTING.

Please point out any factual errors in my earlier post.  And also
learn to stick to the topic, Mister :)

Then let's stick to the century under question.  It was just as explosive
that anything Gilly has come up with in Tests.  Gilly might be a better
batsman (or not).  My only point is that it is wrong to say that Gayle has a
long way to go before he can be explosive like Gilly.  The latter comes in
to tonk a few when there is 400-500 on the board.  The former has to protect
his wicket.

Only his second test, too.

Also, his ton v Englnad in Sydney was hardly a tonk at the end of the
innings (although he did get 133 off 121). He batted extremely well with
SRW the previous afternoon to help him get to his ton, and then after
Waugh got out the following morning, there was still a lot of work to be
done to get a first innings lead.

Nor have we seen Gilchrist do it as a test opener which is harder...
