    Players that are the most overated by CW posters.

    So, who do we hear a lot about from posters on here who generally are not worthy of the praise? Would be interested in hearing all suggestions.

    Lillee could not bowl on sub cont. wickets so he is overrated

    Bradman could not bat on a sticky wickets so he is overrated

    Warne was banned for popping a pill so he is overrated

    Sobers canít be a decent AR is bowling ave. Is too high so he is overrated

    Richards was all show his ave. Is only in the low 50s so he is overrated

    I could go on but someone may start to believe me
    You know it makes sense.

    Was a lot of Afridi/Dhoni love going round at one point, seems to have subsided now but never understood it.

    Naseer Hussein, Michael Artherton, Alec Stewart, Darren Gough, Caddick and every other English cricketer that is considered better than the likes of Hayden, Gilchrist, Gillespies etc in their respective field.

    Tendulkar, easily. Far and away the most over rated player here. You'd think he farted incense the way people talk about him. I recall discussion on here where Sreesanth was criticized for daring to bowl to him in a domestic match and having the sheer gall to, brace yourselves, stare at the great man.

    Sreesanth was rightly condemned by all of CW for being so uppity. Ain't but no one stares at Sachin.

    He has dominated every bowler, everywhere. The only time McGrath got him out was due to a bad decision- the 99-00 series in Australia will forever be known as the "get Sachin" series - the umpires cheated to remove him cheaply. We won't talk about the 2001 "Get Gilchrist" series.

    He has won every world cup and test match he played in, and has secured MOtM in all of them. There is a queue from Sydney to Mumbai waiting to have his babies. I, for one, am at the head of it. It's the only head I'll have for quite some time I imagine.

    Sachin also has by far the best haircut of any cricketer, ever. He's taken so many odi wickets he's a better all rounder than Sobers, and dare I say it, may even be approaching Imran status.

    You ask how I know this? statsguru told me. I'm only 17 or 18, but a glance at statsguru imbues me with the knowledge and ability to read a game of the great Richie Benaud who, to the extent that his views differ from mine, is plainly starstruck in holding Ray Lindwall and Keith Miller so highly. I, by contrast, am in no way star struck by Sachin, or indeed by any one else. It's just coincidence that I think the 90s is the greatest decade of cricket ever, and I happened to grow up in that very decade.

    Actually mate, I do.

    Just steeling myself for another look at Imran-Sobers.

    The latter, btw, is massively over rated.

    If by most posters, you mean just Richard, then yeah I agree.

    Any young player who's just had a good first-class season. Literally any of them.

    I gather I haven't been here for long, but, really? Who says that?
