And like you so rightly point out, the best batsmen of any era possess certain qualities that are necessary for success - Specifically concentration and hand-to-eye coordination - Which would have allowed them to adapt to the differing challenges that confronted them.
This thread unfortunately is heading down the "wet wicket thread" path. Which is a pity in some ways because it had potential.Maybe it should be closed???????
Keep Your Feet on The Ground,Keep Reaching for The Stars!
This is a famous excerpt generally used for ignorant people
"You could give Aristotle a tutorial. Not only can you know more than him about the world.
You also can have a deeper understanding of how everything works.
Such is the privilege of living after Newton, Darwin, Einstein, Planck, Watson, Crick and their colleagues."
"I'm not saying you're more intelligent than Aristotle, or wiser. That's not the point.
The point is only that science is cumulative, and we live later."
It is the analogy any one who wants to compare present with past has to look into first, before denigrating all that was achieved by the likes of hobbs, grace et al..
Of course I may have better batting technique than Victor Trumper : But that doesn't make me an all-time aussie cricketer.
