    Burgey's Allan Border Appreciation Thread

Personally, I'd rate AB to be the second best Australian batsman after Bradman, though I know not many would support that opinion.

    I think AB is one of the best players of all time.. He was a bit like Lara of his time, wasn't he? Didn't he have to carry the batting of that Aussie side for a good period of time?

    Yeah mate he did, massively so. A lot like Lara, only so much less flashy and brilliant to watch. Just a hard, hard hombre.

    AB ranked on par with dravid, miandad, compton and 3Ws is very very special in my books.

    +1 from me too - a dead set legend is our AB.

    And in response to the OP, the answer as far as I'm concerned is unequivocally YES.

    Wow, Allan Border has some rock-solid stats. Definitely a contender for that "Who has the most complete record?" thread that we had recently, IMO.
