But I may have misunderstood what you were saying. If you are saying Philander is a better bowler than what Steyn is TODAY, it is arguable but not something that I would have been sarcastic about. I thought, perhaps wrongly, that you were just comparing Philander with Steyn or predicting that based on what Philander has done so far he appears to be the equal, if not the superior, of Steyn. Of course, I found such a presumption completely off.
But as I said, I could have misunderstood since it is not clear from the thread opener. :o)
