For those that care, a new Test Cricket batting record was set today.

Matt "The Bat" Hayden (AUS) made a new record of 380 runs today beating the old record of 375 (Brian Lara, WI).

He batted for 623 minutes over two days and hit 11 balls out of the ground!

Some concentration huh?

Um....yay? I'm sorry, but this is completely confusing to me.



Sometimes I ask myself why I watch WWE after all the crap it's given me. HLA, necro, HHH, and so on. And then it hits me. That one simple phrase that can be modified and used for anything that gets you down, yet makes you keep coming back.

Every episode has the potential to be the best one ever, and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it after sitting through this shit.

Cricket is the father of baseball.

A Batter is not out unless all of his wickets are knocked down (short version, 3 planks of wood where we keep the catcher)

So, if you keep hitting, and you're not out in one of the, like, 11 ways to get called out, you can keep batting for like a week.

I'll presume this is the equivalent of, say, hitting five homers in one game.

I'd actually say that upon looking at the progression of the record it's more like Jamal Lewis' 295-yard rushing day. The old record of 375 was set in 1994, so it wasn't that old of a record.

(This is meant to compare it, historically speaking, to the idea of hitting 5 home runs in a game, which has never happened in the 120-plus year history of Major League Baseball.)

I actually played cricket for the first time this summer (after watching it for years) and LOVED it. Lots of fun, good people, and I got to use some of my old centerfield skills for the first time in a while...

That's a pretty good analogy JJ, at least in terms of progression. The previous record broke a 35 year old record though. The concentration required is immense. He faced 437 balls for 380 runs. Normally a good test batsman will score at about 1 run every 2 balls. Even Hayden's first hundred runs came off 212 balls, so the next 280 came off 225. That's some phenomenal batting. His 11 sixes, where the ball clears the fence, were an Australian record for a single innings, beating the old record of 8. Its also, obviously, the highest Australian score, beating a record that was equaled 5 years ago, but that had stood since 1930.

The thing that got me was the voice-over- it sounded just like the REAL voice-over guy on the commercials for some reality TV shows.
