    The article is about favourites, not best.

    Didn't even read it tbh. Favourite, sure. But let's not claim that Ian Chappell and three others reckoning DK is the best ever is some objective measure of his quality. I mean, have we forgotten the various SK Warne rankings that, iirc, conveniently rates his mate Darren Berry as a better cricketer than Steve Waugh?

    At least Siddle > Lillee comes from a flaw in the system that can be ironed out, not Cribb saying "I ****ing hate him".

    Sure, cricketer ratings are better than a random bloke on an online forum. But they're still both subjective as ****.

    Careful statistical analysis placed within proper context and with appropriate methodological caveats >>> boomer feels.

    But yeah obviously Lillee was an awesome bowler who is far better than Peter Siddle. But jfc don't throw the baby out with the bathwater thanks to one weird result.

    I actually agree that Siddle should not have been placed 30 places above Lillee. He is only 25 places above Lillee as per my calculations. Bloke could bowl everywhere.

    A bowler like Lillee would always be loved. He was express fast, aggressive, beautiful action and a colourful character from a powerful cricketing nation back then. The best example of a fast bowler. That doesn’t make him the best though.

    It's not about was Lillee the best, in this thread it's about does he deserve to be ranked behind Siddle and exactly the same as Flintoff (Lillee took 355 wkts in 70 Test, Flintoff 219 in 78 Tests)

    The vegan king Peter Siddle is obviously a better bowler than some baby boomer who took six career wickets in Asia and the West Indies. Get over it.

    Any comments on Sobers being better bowler than Andy Roberts and Colin Croft?

    Stuart Broad better than Freddie Truman?

    Lillee vs Siddle holds true here as well. Players who perform across the globe are rated higher than mythical heroes who gain massive mileage based on peer reputation.

    Throw this quartet in the heat, dust and smoke of Chennai, Faisalabad or Kanpur. I would say they will bowl out the opposition for around 350 with Andy and Colin a four wicket haul each with Lillee food poisoned and Trueman scalping 2 tail enders slogging.

    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'
