How do you think he would go? Of course there is a lot more cricket being played (more Tests, ODIs T20), a lot of technology involved and a lot more scrutiny with every innings and it would of be awesome to see how he would have gone in India and had he the chance to play Zimbabwe and Bangladesh then BCL's record of 400 might have been under threat and arguably better bowlers.
So would have been just a run scoring genius back in the 30's and 40's or was he really over-rated because he never got to play cricket in more different conditions and was up against mainly the same type of bowlers. And if you listen to social, a lower standard of cricket and that he just brilliant beyond his peers? Just putting it out there.
And before I press "submit" and somebody wants to be a ****, I know he would be 100 this year and not alive, so if he was born in the mid to late 70's and was just as much of an active player as Jacques Kallis. And no irrelevant option this time.
