The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

None of us can say for certain that he'd be the best batsman ever still if he was playing in these times, he may be in amongst a bunch of exceptional players averaging 50+. To ask 'well, who would be then' is requesting more speculation on something unquantifiable. Who knows!? Maybe we'd find out a Bradman in the 30's is a Tendulkar in the 00's. Maybe he'd continue to outscore anyone and everyone.
R.I.P Craigos, you were a champion bloke. One of the best

Yes, SA and WI did struggle of times, but there's millions of times attacks from most countries struggled from 2001/02 onwards. I don't see anything suggesting these attacks were significantly better than those of the South African, and certainly not the English and West Indian, ones from the 1930s.
Not enormously. If it makes it harder for batsmen, it makes it even harder for fielders.Temperature has no effect?
If Ricky Ponting, Jacques Kallis, etc. can average 70, which they have, then I see no reason Bradman could not have doubled that.
Err - to what exactly do you prefer?
Hahahahaha, how stupid (or looking-for-any-tenuous-link-you-can-find desperate) would you have to be to link those two?
