At the end of the day Lee averaging 24 and Bracken averaging 24 arent really match winning contributions. Incidentally your 8th best batsman is shane warne and he averaged single figures.
8th best in that series mate. You knew what I meant.
Either way, you can have your opinion. Check out the SA bowling averages for that series too though - it's on statspider, cricinfo, howstat, or in the dictionary under "mediocrity".
Anyway, that's about enough from me on this topic, time to move on - as I've said, if that series is really what you consider to be our batsman being wrapped around the fingers of opposition bowlers, then I look forward to more finger-wrappin'!
