[QUOTE=Richard;1848554]OK, so first subcontinental pitches offer nothing to any bowlers, now they're turners. Make your mind up.
The way you berrate Matthew Hayden's success clearly demonstrates that you do not know what you're talking about, but you constantly persist with that issue. Yet, you seem to remark us all by claiming that Younis Khan isn't far off Kallis or Ponting.Originally Posted by Richard
I assess players on a certain class, not scorecards. If I relied on statistics then I'd rate Jayawardene, Sangakkara, Mohammad Yousuf, Graeme Smith, Thilan Samaraweera, Younis Khan, Michael Hussey and Adam Gilchrist as some of the best batsman of the modern era. Too me, it's just plain obvious that none of these players are in the same class as Tendulkar, Lara, Ponting, Kallis, Dravid and Hayden. You can see it when you watch them bat. To me, Pietersen is of the highest class. No other batsman has impressed me more at first sight then Kevin Pietersen. JP Duminy is in a similar vain but whether he lives up to his potential or not is another story
Epic Fail? LOOOOOL! Pietersen played the most impressive shot off Murali that I've ever seen. He murdered Muralitharan. That comment is almost signature worthy.Originally Posted by Migara
Playing outside the subcontient does offer more value, for subcontient batsman. As statistics show, only 3 subcontient batsman in the history of the game have averaged over 50 outside the subcontient.
