George Lohmann | England Cricket | Cricket Players and Officials | ESPN Cricinfo
These are his test stats :
112 wickets from 36 innings @ 10.75
I asked this question in the Bradman thread, but I think this deserves a thread of its own. By common consensus, Bradman is the best batsman of all time, because he averaged almost twice as much as other all time great batsmen (it is a viewpoint I completely agree with by the way). Using the same standards, does it mean Lohmann is the greatest bowler ever? He averaged less than half of what most other all time great (fast) bowlers average. Is he the second greatest cricketer after Sir Donald Bradman?
Would love to hear the views of CWers on this.
