BTW I could've also said painting the woodwork and sorting through your Clubcard statements.
Numbers of wickets are fairly irrelevant; those are a consequence of having played lots of games rather than having actually bowled well. The career figures of the likes of Collingwood and Tendulkar are very poor indeed; Jayasuriya is essentially an all-rounder in ODIs in that he's always been perfectly capable of bowling 10 overs when needed. He played the first 5-6 years of his ODI career as a bowling-all-rounder, indeed.Collingwood has over 100 wickets, Tendulka has over 150, Jaysuirya who despite his accuracy was never an all-rounder in tests has over 300. It kind of devalues it all a bit.
Saqlain? Nah, was never going to be a World-class Test bowler IMO, he's a fingerspinner, and fingerspinners just cannot be that any more because fingerspinners need favourable conditions to be effective and such conditions are not widespread enough any more for fingerspinners to achieve sustained success.I always though ODIs and the style he adopted fo them distracted him from being a world class test bowler. IMO
