    Crowe's performance against the best of his era isn't in dispute at all. It's how he did against the next tier that's at issue and impacts on his average. England at home and away, for example.

    Not that I think average is (nor should be) the sole measurement of the quality of a player. If you dominate mainly the best sides, that's an extremely useful player to have in your side and I definitely put him ahead of D Jones in terms of when he scored as Jones' average is boosted somewhat a lot of 2nd-dig/late series nothing runs. I also don't believe that averaging 50 magically makes you a better player than someone who averages a few runs less. What averaging 50 says (broadly) is that you scored the hard runs and the easy ones. Since Crowe was mainly at his best in the former situations, his average takes a dip. Doesn't mean he wasn't a batting genius.

    ^ Fair enough, as long as we both agree he had a slight edge on Dean Jones as a test bat Would be the other way around if we're talking ODIs though.

    haha, the difference ain't slight and I say that as someone for whom Deano was my hero growing up. And as far as ODI knocks go, Deano probably the more consistent but Crowe's ton to open the '92 WC was one of the best I've ever seen.

    I had been looking for footage of Michael Vaughan bowling Sachin for years but recently discovered it. Some guy called 'Robelinda'seems to have footage from years back including Aussie state match stuff.

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
