Now before a load of angry Australians start ranting about how Broad will never be as good a bowler as Johnson is now, this is not a comparison of the two as bowlers. It is also not a comparison of their fielding abilities, temperaments or anything else like that. The only thing that I am comparing the two on, is there batting ability, and how valuable they are as a test match number 7/8/9.
Without taking too much notice of statistics (both have had relatively short test careers to date, therefore averages may just be inflated), which would you prefer to have coming in when the side is in need of runs? And do either of them have a viable chance of becoming a test standard (bowling) all-rounder?
