If this goes the way of the Bradman threads we had a few months ago, with the same posts being repeated ad infinium and the entire thing descending into a ****fight, I am going to be remarkably pissed off.
You won't get the benefit of a new thread, like nightprowler was kind enough to provide when the bowling tangent started getting too much. And if it starts getting personal in the way it did last time, expect big infractions.
What it is, though, is totally unnecessary in this thread.
I'd argue that in Bradman's era a larger percentage of kids wanted to play cricket for Australia than do now.
How good a batsman would Rod Laver have been?
and how many Grand Slams would the Don have managed?
Does anyone care?
Awaing Sobers announcement and his score. Really also want to see the size of the gap between Bradman and the field.

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
