    Rather than go though all this lets agree to differ otherwise Ill spent all night on here clogging the thread up.

    Ill just say that there are tracks where medium pacers become like fodder as they ease onto the bat and an extra yard is needed. There are a long list of examples where the lack of a cutting edge in pace hurts a team on a certain wicket.

    I don't disagree that there are tracks when medium-pacers (and medium-fast ones too) become fodder. Equally, of course, many of these would also see fast pacers become such.

    I simply feel that a seamer is a seamer, and the difference is not sufficient between various paces of such bowlers to make them something which has to be entirely different.

    For example: Mohammad Asif >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Andre van Troost. Yet the latter was most certainly quicker.

    The point has no relevance. Whether Asif is better or not they are/were very different types of bowlers and each would benefit from different conditions.

    Pointless putting Paul Collingwood in the same bracket as Brett Lee just as it is putting Bill Bowes with Larwood. Its not about ability or success but that its a different art.

    If you want to put all seamers together you had may as well just have 1 category 'bowlers'

    Well, as you say - agree to disagree is probably the best course of action.

    I beg to differ
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    I was just looking around for a relatively recent thread that mentioned him, so as I could post this picture:

    Incredible how he can be retired for 4 years, be having a swing on the beach, be captured by a simple still photograph - and still it looks damn superb.
