    The best at their peak?

    Those batsmen and bowlers you thought were simply unstoppable when at their very best.

    Lara
    Richards
    Sehwag
    Tendulkar
    Ponting
    Hayden

    in that order would make my list of such batsmen in tests.

    And the following bowlers:

    Waqar
    Marshall
    Ambrose
    Akhtar
    Lillee
    Murali
    i know i am god. since when i pray i find i am talking to myself.

    (massive apologies to barnes)

    Would add Donald to the list too. Was lethal during the 96-2000 era.

    Stuart Law- couldn't even get dismissed in test cricket, far too easy for him.

    Waqar's peak was from 1990 till 1995 till he got a back injury. Was unplayable during that English tour.

    Donald's was from 96-2000. Pollock also had a great bowling period 99-2001

    Their yearly averages across their careers.



    The Y Axis is the bowling average and the X axis is the year.

    That graph is very misleading

    My eyes immediately went to the actual peaks on the graph and I literally stared for a full five seconds before I realised what was wrong

    always been a massive fan of graphs without any units or legends.
