Ah, the Wanderers!

For 2348 one-day internationals no one does it. Then, in one explosive day, two sides make more than 400 runs in a one-day match. Some game that was.

Two comments: one, I'm surprised it didn't happen earlier, because the one-day game has been changing rapidly over the last few years to favour the batsmen. Two, I predict that now that the possibility of 400 has burst open, more sides will get it. India and Pakistan will get there within their next 50 ODIs. There, I did it, opened myself up to egg on my face.

I won't comment on whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, but it's an inevitable thing. More in a longer piece coming up sometime, including the reasons for this shift, and why it is irreversible.
