    Not if you were to take ODIs into account though. The gap closes quite rapidly.

    For me there's a huge difference between Cricketer and LO cricketer tbh. I'm not a fan of giving the former or latter part importance in rating cricketers. For instance, for me, Mike Bevan was an incredible LO cricketer, not a very good cricketer.

    After their first test Raina had a century while Don Bradman had something like ten or something.

    For me it reiterates that Raina is a better batsman than Donald Bradman.

    If you take into their bowling and fielding skills, no question who the better cricketer is.

    Wouldn't mind seeing their record when they aren't playing as teenagers.

    Yeah, but this "Kallis >>>>>>> all as a cricketer" meme on here is starting to grind my gears a bit lately.

    haha I remember that well.. The umpire might well have given it, but Hayden dived around and was busy appealing for the catch, distracting the umpire from the "real" appeal, I felt..

    I blame Hayden for appealing for the catch and distracting the ump..



    Hayden never wanted Ponting to discover himself as a bowler..

    That's not really a meme though. Kallisball is a meme, bringing up Kallis randomly is a meme, but people saying he was a better cricketer than any specialist who played in the last 60 years or so is a valid and serious opinion.
