That's my point, are we transferring their skills across and giving their career stats and achievements equal status with the men, meaning she (Bakewell) has an average of nearly 60? Or are we judging her as a women's cricketer playing against, as you say, Holding, Garner and Ambrose? In which case she'd struggle.
My point is, if their skills don't transfer across in to these teams, we might as well have all researched who's the best women fielder, or the best drinks waitress, or who has the best thighs in short shorts (for team morale)!
I'm not really fussed either way, but I'd probably have chosen someone else if the skills and achievements don't transfer and become comparable with the men's.....
