With pitches like these, cricket will soon become like baseball. Only sixes and fours. no fielding business.

Its not only australia and south africa

438-5 (50) Surrey v Glamorgan The Oval 2002
438-9 (49.5) South Africa v Australia Johannesburg 2005/06
434-4 (50) Australia v South Africa Johannesburg 2005/06
429 (49.5) Glamorgan v Surrey The Oval 2002
424-5 (50) Buckinghamshire v Suffolk Dinton 2002
413-4 (60) Somerset v Devon Torquay 1990
409-6 (50) Trinidad v Northern Windwards Kingston 2001/02
406-5 (60) Leicestershire v Berkshire Leicester 1996
405-4 (50) Queensland v Western Australia Brisbane 2003/04
404-3 (60) Worcestershire v Devon Worcester 1987

Obviously when you compare the level of play between International and County cricket there is a lot of difference but the pitch also plays an important role so yes cricket is getting bizzare now a days and last 12 months have seen a couple of astonishing team totals close to the 400 mark, like England's 391 for 4 against Bangladesh and New Zealand's 397 for 5 against Zimbabwe

Look @ now the 2nd most expensive bowling murli 10 overs and 99 runs

To be honest dont look @ the bowlers !!! this game is a batsman game and all the rules layed down are for the batsman and every team now should aim to reach 400 but i think ICC should now lay down some new rules for the bowling department !!! it should be like a team can make 400 runs and also can be out in 0 runs, this makes the match quiet intresting but i dont think ICC can ever lay down good rules in cricket !! thats why it was boring long time back its still but we just love team india wat say?

If I remember correctly, this is the same pitch where the last world cup finals was played and Aus had hammered 359 against India.

Why Lewis was preferred over Lee who did not completed his quota of 10 overs?
