    I think some of it stems from who he was as a man - everything I've read is pretty polarising; he single handedly ended the career of Joe Hardstaff Jr., yet ended up with special priveliges at Lord's and refused to bowl Bodyline. Little bit contradictory there.

    Is the best female cricketer of all time anywhere close to the worst male cricketer of all time to play Tests? Hmm..
    Well, Elysse Perry is far from the best female cricketer of all time, and she did pretty well when she played First Grade. Given we've had a handful of grade guys jump very quickly from Firsts to the Test XI, and considering the quality of some of Bangladesh's Test players, I don't see why some of the best Women's players of history couldn't be seen as better than some of the worst men.

    tl;dr - Belinda Clark > Darren Maddy & Elysse Perry > Rajan Das
