    Brilliant bowling by Steyn today. Still think he is the worst best fast bowler ever?
    Get well soon Yuvi!!

    Today should end the debate about whether Philander is better than Steyn too. Steyn is just so much better to watch and far more deadly when he gets it right because he has the extra pace. Great partnership to have though as they both do it so well.

    I don't think anyone debated about that. Everyone consider Steyn to be better.

    Been a few asking the question in the last year simply because Philanderer is averaging under 20.

    It should not, what if 5 years from now he's over 300 wickets at an average below 20? I'm not saying he's better, mind, only that's still too early to give any definitive answer to that debate.

    Besides, today Philander was getting irreal seam movement, it was like a 75 mph spinner. On another day it could have well been him to get the 5-fer, as it actually happened on a few occasions.

    Absolutely awta

    Steyn's achievements tower over Philander because he's proven himself over the last 5-6 years in virtually all conditions against every opposition. He's reaching Donald-level status now or is at least very close for me.
    But Philander has been magnificent so far and could probably end up as good as Steyn if he carries on imo.

    That said, Steyn tearing through a lineup is just awesome to watch... trumps Philander, or indeed most bowlers ever.

    Looking forward to two years after his retirement when his 'great' status will come under scrutiny through stats. Probably won't have gotten out enough left handers bowling around the wicket on the 3rd day after lunch with the old ball at Sabina Park to be considered a true great.

    Even if he has a few dire years towards the end of his career he's done enough to be considered a true great imo.
