I'm always going to maintain Grimmett was far, far superior. He had additional control and could build pressure to help O'Reilly take wickets galore, and he still averaged 6 per match himself.
Worth noting, additionally, that the 1930s were generally characterised by flatter pitches than Mailey's slightly-earlier era.
'Far far superior' - No. That's hyperbole (or as our Prime Minister says, "hyper-bowl")
Superior - Perhaps or yes.
