    Ponting still rates as a great to me, I could not care whether he scored a ton in India or not, so if Bradman would have played 3 Tests in India and failed we would wipe him? A load of crap this argument, I watched him and he was a great bowler end of story
    You know it makes sense.

    Yes, if someone else had a 99.94 average and scored everywhere and wasn't crap in India....he would be better than Bradman...

    Haha! Well said SS.

    Enough with the Lillee love already...that guy is a little overrated.

    (though I do think he was better than Amby)

    I seem to be losing this argument

    I take words such as overated to mean he is not considered a great bowler, but hey that is just me

    Nah, if people rate Lara better than Bradman, I could say Lara is overrated, but that doesn't mean he wasn't great compared to everyone else. At least, thats how I use the term overrated.

    Maybe a little overrated...by some, is a more accurate description.

    You can not be serious!

    I'm afraid with that one statement your credibility has "just left the building"

    Haha why? If someone had an average of 99.94, they would be thought of as roughly equal to Bradman - if this batsman had also performed in more countries than Bradman (despite Bradman not having the opportunity to do the same), I'd rank the player higher than Bradman as well. It's just logic.
