    Did Sutcliffe play in the era of timeless tests?

    Headley and Pollock don't deserve to be ranked above Tendulkar, Chappell or Gavaskar who played against more opponents and maintained their high standards over 100 innings all around the globe. They may all be equally talented but these two didn't get to showcase theirs for too long.

    Headley's 25 test match peak of 0.00 should see him picked sooner rather than later, despite his long career in terms of years.
    NRL Tipping Champion 2014

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    I feel that their far suprior quality points will outweigh their losses in peak-points.
    Hoping it's not the case though hahaha as I agree that they don't deserve to be in the top 10 in a statistical analysis.

    Oops for some odd reason I thought Headley's avg was in the high 60s lol and that Pollock wasn't far behind. (how wrong haha).

    Nah they probably won't make the top 10 then.
    I shall refrain from making anymore facepalm worthy predictions lol

    What was Barry Richards 25 test peak?
    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

    How does this one rank? Harsh conditions and made more runs in one inning than the whole Pakistan line-up made in two.

    Viv, Headly, Pollock Sutcliffe out. SRT, Barrington, Kallis Ponting and Sanga in for me.
