    Is Broad now better than Anderson?

    Had a better series, obviously. Seems much more prepared to be driven than Anderson these days. But only a year ago he was dropped.

    Just throwing the question out there.

    Remind me what test he was dropped for again.

    I think I brought this up after the 2nd or 3rd Test. I wouldn't say he's actually a better bowler yet but I reckon this may be the series where we see him kind of take over from Jimmy as our lead bowler, or at least this will be the turning point towards that eventually happening.

    He technically got dropped in India last year. But there were also fitness issues.

    Want me to dig up the comparison thread between Broad and Ishant, GIMH?
    This was a serious post:

    RIP Craigos. Owe you a beer.:(

    Australia are still treating Broad with respect. Not so Anderson.
