Going on a rant about how cherry picking stats and doing statistical analysis is all BS and one should use their eyes is going off topic a bit. Don't like stats, then don't enter in a discusson about them IMO.
India's bowling has been poor for ages, how much longer to they have to suck for before we get to the stage where we go "Yea, sure he averages 50, but he scored bulk of his runs bullying weak attacks like India
and struggles against quality opposition" ? Or will that stage never come because, well, they are India - richest team in the world and former Test No. 1?
