Which record is safest: Afridi's or Anwar's?

(Background: Afridis 37 balls 100 and Saeed Anwars 194 )

Nowadays we have flat wickets, big bats, smaller boundaries, and some will even say that the quality of bowlers today isn`t as as good as we had in 90s.

Records are there to be broken and what do you guys think of these two records. Both are hard to break but which one do you think will be broken first? And wich players 2day are capable of breaking the respective records?

If these records are broken one day then I personally hope it is by other Pakistanis

No doubt, the way cricket is being playing these days with the emerging of T20, Anwar record is in great danger. It's just a matter of time when player's like Sehwag, Smith will thrash it, esp considering smaller boundries.

Afridi's record is in imminent danger. From Afridi himself (otherwise it is very unlikely it will be broken save in a vs. Holland kind of situation).

As for Anwar's record, it is just a matter of time.

When I was watching Gibbs against Australia in that world record high scoring match I was very nervous when he got passed 150 but Alhamdulillah he didn`t make it.

And Dhonis 180+ was also scary.

I honestly believe that Sehwag and Gibbs are two players who did have and still does have the ability to break Anwar's record. Tendulkar was almost on the verge of breaking it against New Zealand this year, but got retired hurt. I believe it'll be broken soon. As for Afridi's record, it's really difficult to bet on it. It's something that will depend upon the luck factor. It will be really difficult to be broken.

Out of the two Anwars record is more likely to be broken. Heavier bats, smaller boundaries, good flat wickets can all help batsmen pile up big individual scores!

Yeah, Afridi won't be beaten, 37 balls is just ridiculous. We've seen bowling attacks being annihalated yet the batsmen still seem to get to 100 off 50-60 balls.

As for Anwar, the size of the jinx thread proves how often players have come close to the record, and it will almost certainly be beaten. I fancied Gilchrist to get it at some point in his career. I think the record is likely to go to someone who is not necessarily overly aggressive, but can bat at a good pace and can bat for long periods of time (i.e. like Anwar) My money is on Gambhir now.

Even Afridi's could be broken, maybe in the 20-20 world cup in a match between a test team and a minnow, but unlikely between two test sides. Anwar's however seems to be under more and more threat with each passing year, the ever growing jinx thread is a testimony to that.

Saeed Anwar's to me seems to be more likely to be broken sooner than Afridi's one as quite a few came close to the 194 mark but not going on as for Afridi's unless someone has a real go against the Afghani's or even the Scottish lot!

That's quite realistic!

Even if Sahibzada Muhammad Shahid Khan Afridi won't be able to break his own, he can certainly score a double century in some 80 to 100 balls!

Technically speaking, for the Afridi record to be broken the first pre-requisite is that it has to be a 50 over ODI.

However, if you view it as a record for the fastest century in any kind of international cricket (which it most definitely is) then you may have a point.

I doubt it will even happen in T20 though, by anybody except at any rate.

Yeah, Imran Nazir has the ability and the attitude to break both records and so does his elder brother Afridi. But the thing is that none of them is getting the 'opportunity' to do it. They need to open! (I'm sick of Salman's Butt, kick him for good)

Afridi's record will not be broken. No matter how flat the pitch is, how short the boundaries are, or how weak the bowlers are no batsman will break Afridi's record. Anwar's record is within reach. I hope both of these records remain intact but if one is broken it will be Anwar's.

Afridi's record is safe since you have to be lucky for at least around 30 odd balls while consistently going after the bowlers.

Anwar's record is a bit unsafe due to 20 over power plays... a good player will make most use of these twenty overs and if he can reach hundred, he has a target of 95 from another 30 odd overs....

Afridi's record is pretty safe even from Afridi himself, it is just too hard to score that fast for that amount of time. The only chance I see is someone like Rizwan Cheema doing it against another associate ODI side.

I don't see anyone breaking Afridi's record. 37 ball 100 is just too good, but you never know.

Andrew Symonds got the fastest 100 in 34 balls in a T20 game between Kent v Middlesex in 2004, and the closest I saw someone get to it recently was Ross Taylor in the ongoing IPL - 81 not out 33 balls, but these are not international matches.

There is a huge difference between domestic (IPL) cricket and International Cricket! Ask Y. Pathan!

Neither Afridi nor Anwar's records are T20 - so why are people using T20 matches as the example where these records might be broken?

55 yard boundaries??? Who knows, mickey-mouse tournaments might introduce a '50' run shot if you hit a Bollywood 'star' prancing about in the stands

I cant see Afridi's going for a while - if it did, it would be to him in all likelyhood.

Anwar's record is the one that is likely to be broken - hence the 'jinx thread'

I hope no one ever beats King Viv's test ton record!

He is a decent hitter, but in international cricket he will not meet average spinners. Against real fast bowlers he will struggle and he has in fact struggled against some quick bowlers in the IPL.

Technically you are incorrect because apart from the "fastest 100" Shahid Afridi also holds the record for "fastest debut innings" and inorder to break that that means someone has to score hundred of 36 balls in their first international innings and that's not gonna happen........

Yousaf Pathan won't break it unless he comes to open, I think both records can only be broken by openers especially Afridi's.

if the record is only 37 balls, why would Pathan need to open?...he could easily be sent with 10 - 15 overs remaining and manage to break it.

Having said that, he probably wont be able to. He has much more of a brain than Afridi to not be able to handle it in the international stage. Plus the fact that even in IPL his highest is something like 60 off 30 balls, which is not even close to the record.

Players [especially Indians] think about records - 50's, 100's getting "not outs" etc to boost averages and fill up spread sheets. Afridi works on a primitive instinct, to smash any object intruding his personal space. It is territorial. Primordial.

It appears that even Afridi may have shown signs of evolution from that age, but even so - he will be the closest thing to it.

May be it's a conscious effort to compensate for the gross overestimation of his senior brother which so many people were guilty of.

In T20 - I dont think they are. Hes always good for 30 off 17 balls / 60 off 30 balls etc in that format.

What has he done in ODIs (which are the 2 records that are being discused) e.g how many hundreds has he scored in ODIs? or how many ODI 150s has he scored - and in how many balls?

anwars record can be broken by any of sehwag, gambhir, tendulkar, smith, gibbs, gayle, jayasurya, any cricketer who can bat for full 50 overs & bats in the top 3 & plays about 160 balls. for players like sehwag, 40 overs can be enough & he can do it in 120-130 balls. even can do it provided he plays for 120 balls in an odi

afridis record can be broken by yusuf pathan(he has smashed a 98 off 32 balls in a domestic odi in india once), yuvraj singh, mccullum, symonds, himself, (made a 25 ball 92 in a domestic match recently)

Domestic is different to International
butt will get 100 off 120-130
symonds is past it
mccullum wont attempt it
yuvraj hasnt got the balls to attempt it
Y pathan hasnt hit any kind of century in T20/ international
Afridi is the only one capable

Dont know what happened to this thread.

What I do know is that both [World] records mentioned in this thread were carried out at the International level [ie, the peak level of any sporting contest].

Lets not pollute this thread with Mickey Mouse achievements from the WWE league.

The 2 records in question are real records in real cricket against real opposition.

Shahid Afridi's record is the safest because no one is going to play like Shahid Afridi did in the match against Sri Lanka.

Many of you stated that it's easier to break Anwars record than afridis record, if we can use that word.
One Pakistani record is equalled. I hope Afridi's stays safe.

Even Afridi won't be able to better his own record. Guys like Gayle haven't been able to replicate it in the T20 format even, so I don't see Afridi being overthrown from his position of glory
