But the performances of bowlers like Smith, Sehwag and Mubarak can't be assessed fairly, whether on an individual basis or within a certain group of bowlers, that's the point. I agree with your sentiments, but I disagree with how an over (2 balls in Mubarak's case) can be used to strengthen your argument, because those bowlers haven't been given enough chances.
