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
In an all time great team selection, if you have the choice between two bowlers with virtually identical averages, the one with the far better SR surely has to be chosen. Bowlers taking wickets quicker wins matches.
I can understand why Larwood played only 21 Tests because he was banned after the Bodyline series. But why did Tyson play so few Tests when he obviously had the talent to last more than 5 years. Was it injury or did he just give up?
1. Jack Hobbs - 2. Len Hutton - 3. Ted Dexter - 4. Peter May - 5. Walter Hammond - 6. Ian Botham - 7. Alan Knott - 8. Hedley Verity - 9. Harold Larwood - 10. John Snow - 11. Sydney Barnes
1. Victor Trumper - 2. Bob Simpson - 3. Don Bradman - 4. Greg Chappell - 5. Allan Border - 6. Keith Miller - 7. Adam Gilchrist - 8. Alan Davidson - 9. Shane Warne - 10. Dennis Lillee - 11. Bill O'Reilly
BTW, your post reminded me of this.. Davo is in red
Don't see how you can leave Sydney Barnes out of an England XI tbh.
Strike rate is balls per wicket.
McGrath only concedes one run more per wicket than Davidson.
Davidson takes ten more balls to take a wicket than McGrath.
Multiply these by 5 wickets per test and you can see how you'd always take McGrath over Davidson (based on stats). Surely...
