    Overrated Cricketers//Underrated Cricketers

    I think the following cricketers are overrated:

    Brett Lee
    Shoaib Akhtar
    Virender Sehwag
    Inzamam Ul-Haq
    Marcus Trescothick(only sometimes overrated)






    I think the following cricketers are underrated and shoudn't be:

    Nathan Bracken
    Ashley Giles(only a little bit underrated)
    VVS Laxman
    Zaheer Khan
    Stuart MacGill
    Matthew Hoggard

    These are all of course, my opinion, so give me your opinion on my list of overrated and underrated players.
    Favourite XI: Trescothick, Cook, Sangakkara, Lara, Dravid, Pietersen, Gilchrist+, Flintoff, Pollock, Warne*, Ntini.

    I'm sure there's a thread about 500 pages long on this somewhere, although it may be a few months old.

    I don't think its possible for Irfan Pathan to be rated below where he currently is in the eyes of most people.

    I am not allowed to trash him until tomorrow, so I won't give my opinion on it.

    Gilchrist
    Ponting Pretty much same as Sachin, but not quite as good.
    Brett Lee
    Graeme SMith
    Harmison He was the best bowler in the world about 2 years ago, suddenly hes overated because in a poor run of form.
    Zaheer KHan Underated in my opinion.
    Irfan Pathan
    TRescothick One of England's most underated players of recent times
    Shame Watson's bowling
    Makhaya Ntini Severley underated, especially in recent times.
    Shaun Pollock Same as Ntini, have you seen his ODI record?
    Fidel Edwards
    Chris Gayle A very good player, did you see him bat in the CT?
    Saurav Ganguly Used to a great, but just ran out of it.
