    Because we're all hugely racist.

    Next question?

    Players from SoC's country have on occasion had batting averages of around 99, making them better than any other player ever unquestionably.

    Perhaps because you see more of your own countries players more often than those from other countries. I have more access to books about Australian players and tours which took place here as well.

    I think payed television will make a difference, I have been watching the Windies V India series and have really enjoyed it, so players like the big driving R Ashwin will be a player who will now follow
    You know it makes sense.

    Because your player's record in the subcontinent while battling diarrhoea and in an unstable marital situation is SIGNIFICANTLY WORSE over a time period of six months encapsulating three Tests.

    My player would have had an 0.5 higher strike rate after first chance averages were factored in. That one time he did or didn't perform well in the farcical/relevant World XI game was included/excluded in my analysis.

    Err, I would think this is pretty darn obvious, because my favourite player is Jacques Kallis. Only the bestest all-roundiest player in the history of Kallisball, plus he's got a lustrous mane even the archangel Michael is quietly bitter over and your player, quite frankly, bears too startling a resemblance to vomit to be worth consideration.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Because if the opposite was the case the implications would trigger a chain reaction of events that would lead to the apocalypse.
