Vaughan is streaks ahead of Butcher, despite any contrived statistics you like to pick and choose from to make your point..
    i cant believe anyone in their right mind can even suggest that Butcher is not a 'classy' batsman. Hes one of the most orthodox players you'll ever see, rarely see him hit a ball in the air, and his coverdrives of the front and back foot are as good as you'll ever get. His 173* against Australia at Headingly is right up there in terms of class,determination and technique. I dont know what you've been watching, but to say that Butcher has never been classy is quite laughable.

    i never thought anyone could possibly be so possessed with Vaughans record from 4 years ago. He had one good cricket year, and failed miserable since get over it.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    it's 32 v 35 - as outlined aboove.

    anyway, if you think butcher should be ahead of vaughan - good luck to you.

    you win.

    you are right.

    there you go.

    now get back to whatever people like you do with your day.

    that says that its 39.5
    you're entitled to your opinion if you think Vaughan should make the side ahead of Butcher, but i'd at least like to see a logical argument to it other than "he is a classy player" and " he scored runs against us 4 years ago" conveniently forgetting how he failed miserably against Australia in all bar the double chanced innings at OT last summer.

    I know that says 39.5 - I was talking about a more germane comparison, as outlined above. But good - you think Butcher; I think Vaughan. That's cool.
