    Just pondering something. Did Bradman knew in his time what reverse swing was and what a sub continent pitch looks like?

    Other thing is all those really quick bowlers how effective would they be today considering the 2 bouncer rule and all the body protection available?

    Not off my rocker just yet, only early on Friday arvo!

    I just like to throw something in there from time to time.

    FTR, Boycott had a better FC average than B. Richards (not that it matters much!)

    And B. Richards was excellent, no doubt. But his 4 tests aren't enough to judge him on.

    Worth considering how consistent Boycott was against all countries in all conditions imo...

    that looks like a lot of hunch picks
    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

    Wow, you can quote all the stats you want but that right there shows Tendulkars greatness. Astonishing longevity.. really hope he manages to turn it around and end on a high... if anyone deserves to ride off into the sunset its him

    Yeah he was a monster on wet wickets, just misses out

    Not a classical spinner, Underwood bowled at around medium pace and was often unplayable on seaming English wickets, particularly sticky wickets, earning his nickname 'Deadly', and accounting for the saying that England would "carry Underwood like an umbrella, in case of rain".
