An extreme example as I stated but I can tell you a fair few people around the world would place Malinga above Anderson purely because he is more entertaining to watch. Which highlights my point of our attraction towards aesthetics influencing our judgement on the actual performance and ability of players, even if in other cases the statistics of the various players are much closer.
It's a silly example on purpose, so that I can highlight the argument I'm trying to provide clearly.
