Cheers and thanks in advance.
Nash finished playing Grade cricket in 1937/38.
I think one of the reason players of 20's or that era are considered great is because they ended up being pioneers in certain aspect of cricket or ended up doing things first or first professional or first greatest crowd puller in cricket...
Is the Doc not the first highly famous professional + first guy to score the mountain of runs?
Clem Hill..is he not the first to score 1000 runs in TC in a calendar year
Trumper..First player to completely master bad wickets + plus swashbuckling as well..

So if I bowl to you in ten innings and you absolutely flog me around the park for nine of them, making tons before getting out to other bowlers in the team, and then get out for a duck to me in the tenth innings, cricinfo will record your average against me to be 0.
Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
Ok let me make this clear bcos the mounting flood of stupidity can't be subtlely diverted.
I am not taking figures from cricinfo. I'm aware of its deficiencies. I am taking them from Davis and they are actual stats versus the bowler and are therefore genuine. A case deconstructing SRT can be made with them.
Not that I would. He's a top player. But its fun to give a troll a bit of his own back. OK? Or do I have to go nudge nudge wink wink?
Bambino needs to take a chill pill. Kirkut is having a luagh and he is taking it seriously.
Yeah I think I know what he's doing. Can't I have a bit of fun too? Chill pills for everyone.
Isn't 'bambino' Italian for baby?
Just delighting at the irony. Sorry, please ignore me and carry on.
