    Feel like a challenge, eh?
    Justify that Dravid can't play spin.

    You know the speed with which Dravid bats. This could take some time

    I know this is a p*ss take, but I still like the idea of you living up to this!

    Could you please prove that:

    1. Trevor Gripper is a superior batsman to Matthew Hayden.
    2. Craig White is a superior allrounder to Chris Cairns.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Thats to easy.

    The bowler that has dismissed Dravid the most is Warne proving that Dravid cant play spin.

    .
    Gripper scored a hundred on a seaming wicket which is something Hayden has never done making Gripper superior to Hayden on seaming wickets.

    In 62 test Cairns has only managed to take 14 catches, White on the other hand has taken 14 catches in only 30 tests including 3 in one match, something Cairns has never been able to achieve.

    Richard Hadlee - The Great New Zealand Disappointment

    Much has been made of his prowess with the ball, however there are some alarming statistics that counter the many claims of brilliance. For example:

    Did you know that in his first 3 full test matches Richard Hadlee averaged 119.66 runs per wicket? That's right! In an alarming 3.48837% of all the matches he played in his career he averaged greater than 115 runs per wicket. If we take the 3.48837% and call it the 'Golden Years', it's fair to suggest that anything lying outside this period must indeed be treated as an anomaly, and therefore struck from the record. In stats terms we'll refer to the other 96.5 odd percent of his career as 'extreme variables' - lying outside the reasonable area of expectancy given the results in these three Tests and therefore struck from the record.

    Hadlee was a one trick pony, and I implore you not to let the fact that he performed the trick 431 times at an average of 22.29 fool you into thinking otherwise! In his fifth last test he took 2/132...and as the old saying goes - "You're only as good as your fifth last test!".

    That makes Hadlee as good as someone who took 2 wickets at an average of 66! Geoffrey Boycott has a test bowling average of 54.57; Mark Taylor - 26.00; Allan Border 39.10.

    Read it and weep Richard Hadlee...you were a disgrace to the art of bowling!

    Over to you SJS...

    I would like you to prove me correct.

    Thank you.
    Hadlee is a crap bowler, in 86 test matches he has not got one stumping to his name.

    Gripper's hundred wasnt on a seaming wicket at all. I dont think Chittagong has ever produced a seaming wicket to be honest.

    That's only one aspect of their games though.

    Okay. Here we are.

    Assignment 1[U]

    Objective : Prove Richard Hadlee was a crap bowler. Provide statistical evidence to support.

    Findings :

    1. Richard Hadlee played in only 70 % of all test playing countries. He did not play, for example, in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. Clearly this is a big gap in his CV. We have come across some fast bowlers from minnows like Bangladesh who have played in Bangladesh as well as Zimbabwe

    2. He just could not bowl in muslim countries. In Pakistan, he averages a miserable 44.7 per wicket. He was atrocious in Niaz stadium Hyderabad averaging 77 per wicket and National stadium Karachi averaging over 53 per wicket. While statsitics are not available, his career record in Muslim countries would suggest that these cities may have slightly higher Muslim population than Gaddafi stadium Lahore.

    3. He had no clue as to how to bowl at Green Park Kanpur where he averages 59.


    4. But his most glaring weakness would appear to be at Headingley where he failed to get a single wicket in 282 attempts !!


    5. He had a major drawback in that he was not able to get the number 11 out. An insignificant number of his 431 victims were batting at number 11 in the order !! Surely some one who has problem getting the last man in the batting order throughout his career has to be termed as cra*. In fact we know of bowlers who are fairly decent crap bowlers in comparison to Hadlee.

    Conclusion : It has ben proven with facts and figures that Hadlee ranks amongst the lower rung of crap bowlers.
