    Was kinda surprised to see Imran with the best avg since I thought his peak started in the 80's.

    Also shows how Viv and Chappel Jnr were far and away the best test batsman at that time though its a shame Sunny did not play those those games also Barry Richards seems like a total gun would have been fascinating too see him have a full test career.

    These figures actually miss out the one-off Australia v World XI match held in NZ in 1978/79 - while I don't think it was called a "Super Test" for whatever reason, it was played under the same conditions and most records I've seen count this match in WSC records. Lillee, for example, is almost always credited in books and writings with 79 WSC wickets, rather than the 67 noted here.

    I was going to post the scorecard from that match, but it seems to have disappeared from Cricinfo.

    Indeed - that 12/89 would rank as his best Test match performance were it counted officially. It's also worth noting Greg Chappell's performance in that match - given that it was a game where the bowlers utterly dominated from start to finish, his scores of 74 and 89 are incredible in context.

    Chappell >>> Lillee

    163 runs in that match? Unbelievable. More runs than the World XI's entire top 6! And possibly his own!

    Yeah, didn't spot that. Chappell was freaking brilliant. Obviously, I wasn't old enough to know, but was he a boring or uninspiring scorer? Because a player of his record, seriously, has to be in every discussion in terms of "bests ever" yet seems almost peripheral.

    No way was he dull mate.

    He was a graceful, almost effortless player. Got overshadowed a bit by Viv, who was more sexeh as he bludgeoned, but Chappell was a great, great player. Think Marsk Waugh squared and you've pretty much got him - same gracefulness but a much much much better player.

    In my opinion anyway.

    Chappell > Ponting IMO always been pretty adamant about it. Greg was really quite amazing.

    Helped that he didn't have to face DKL

    But yes, he was a seriously fine player.

    Has anyone ever done an analysis (or can anyone now be bothered to do an analysis) of how the WSC figures would affect the Test batting and bowling stats of those involved, if they were counted as Tests?

    Hope that one day in the future (even 100 years away) the WSC games are given full Test status. Possibly the best exhibition of hard, skilful cricket between a bunch of cricketers considered some of the greatest of all time.
