Let's just say the names were player a,b,c.
I don't see how you can say that Imran's stat's are worse than Dev's or Pollock's as the Averages and Strike Rates are roughly the same. Pollock is ahead slightly, but I've assumed that his matches were less demanding overall - smaller fields etc.
Maybe I have been biased by Test matches - in that type of cricket Imran is the better batsman by a some distance. And this team needs a good batsman at No.7 for the sake of balance!
