I always found the concept of taking out stats against a particular team quite mind boggling and hypocritical to be honest..hypocritical because people tend to do this only when it suits their argument.
Hence last year around this time I had argued this exact point..because the bowling attack of Vinay Kumar, Ashwin, Zaheer and Ishant were not all that different from the so called 'minnows' but obviously that did not go down too well with the Michael Clarke worshippers because that would go against them..
Bangladesh currently have two spinners who in their home conditions are better bowlers than Ashwin and Ojha in their home conditions..
Similary, for Zimbabwe, Brandes, Streak and Blignaut were a country mile ahead of the Indian seamers.. so once again that makes no sense..
So if you are going to leave out stats against BD and Zim, then you should leave out stats against India too..but if you are unwilling to do that, then be fair and count BD and Zim too.
