Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
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
Well, the actual comparison itself became quite redundant.
Was there ever a real question?
ATG Test XI
1. J.B Hobbs 2. H. Sutcliffe 3. D.G Bradman 4. S.R Tendulkar 5. W.R Hammond 6. G.S Sobers 7. A.C Gilchrist 8. Richard Hadlee 9. M.D Marshall 10. S.K Warne 11. G.D McGrath
I can't believe 18 people voted for KP!?!
Sanga is an ATG - along with Kallis the best batsman this millenium (they actually both average 58.66 since 2000 but Kallis has twice as many not outs) whereas KP is simply a very very good international batsman.
Stats for runscorers since 2000:

It shows the depth of South African batting though to think even KP had made the Proteas he would have been one of the lesser batsmen - behind Kallis, ABDV, Amla and (probably) Smith - ridiculous depth!
EDIT: Interesting that no one (has) faced more deliveries than Dravid in that time - truly the Wall.
Here are the leading wicket takers in that time - Murali miles out in front from Steyn, Harby and Jimmy Anderson. Only 8 (if I can count) of the top 50 averaging under 26:

Not weird to think of KP as the better batsman, albeit not a greater one.
~ Do you think I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference ~
kp has a bowling average of 88.6 and he has taken 10 wickets
sanga has a better economy though lacks the penetration of kp and has never taken a wicket
stats speak for themselves tbh
Kinda says a bit that this seemed like a comparison people thought they could make just because KP had only just played a really good innings against India
