    I am comparing them below with Bevan just to make a point that Jadeja was good nothing more nothing less.

    Average inflated by not outs :
    Jadeja : Out of 179 innings he was not out 36 times.
    If the not outs are not taken into account his average drops by 7.5 runs per innings.

    Bevan : Out of 196 innings he was not out 67 times !!
    On removing not outs his average drops by 18.3 runs per innings. !!

    Not enough centuries :

    Jadeja : 6 centuries in 179 innings.
    Bevan : 6 centuries in 196 innings.
    Thus Bevan took 3 innings more per century compared to Jadeja!
    (BTW, Bevan had more 50's than Jadeja at 46. Jadeja has a respectable 36 of them in addition to the centuries)

    Not enough Match winning performances

    Its difficult to go into each innings and analyse. Here is one criteria I could use. Man of the Match Awards.

    Jadeja : 10 MOM awards in 196 games. An award every 19.6 games played.
    Bevan : 12 MOM awards. in 232 games. An award every 19.3 games played.

    If these figures are not comparable, I dont know what is ?

    People should think(and check) twice before just throwing stats around to support a preconcieved notion of theirs.
    Great statistics and Excellent point made

    Well a quick look shows 3 games, 5 overs this season - if he cannot be asked to bowl for his domestic side, how is he going to move into the International arena?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
