    Not to mention the 45 yo comment. Bradman was in fact 40 and only just 40 when he retired from Test cricket
    You know it makes sense.

    Oh, perhaps you could use his name. He was older than that from memory when he retired from Test cricket.

    I think someone like Lara could have went on scoring runs into his 40s, so not as if it won't happen again one day, in fact I bet it does

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Haha, it's just such a fallacy though. His argument basically amounts to "He was so good that it's impossible to believe he was any good at all."
