    Amazing. Love this kind of stuff.

    Top marks all round mate, I only caught the tail end of this but really enjoyed it. Keen as mustard for the bowlers!

    What a marvellous journey its been. Bradman - really nothing to say that hasn't already been said. What a ridiculous player. Brilliant work DoG. Looking forward very much to the bowlers list, hoping some of my favourites (Grimmett, O'Reilly, Barnes) aren't punished too harshly for their lack of matches.

    If the career points cap is removed, then Lara would be the 2nd in the list with 961, and Tendulkar will be #4. I would settle for that ranking. I don't think Sangakkara is a better batsman than SRT at the moment.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    And in the 1930s it works out at one great innings every 3.76 innings or 2.53 matches (13 great innings in 49 innings and 33 matches). This significant improvement on his overall career record is surely unrivaled by any other batsman in any other decade.

    And another request. How much points Sangakkara will get as a pure batsman (non-wk)?

    yes DoG. Can you calculate points for sangakkara purely as a batsman. That would be interesting
    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

    And as previously discussed, misleading.

    That's also like saying whats Sobers points when he didn't have to open the bowling or from when he was picked as a batsman only and not as a spin bowler.

    What really is the point of that? One can only be rated on what they actually did, not on what could have been.

    Probably to the same extent that Pollock and Headley were penalised for their short careers. Barnes will probably be punished more though for his best performances coming against minnows.

    DoG, great work this. Been amazing reading this


    Bradman! Would be interesting to know in which of those numbers he was not ranked first. Man, he is so insane that sometime I wish someone would tell me that he was fiction and not real.

    DoG, I assume you made a mistake when you said Lara ranked 1st in Great innings with 11, as you've just written that Bradman had 15.

    Nah there was this meeting the other day and 11 is more than 15 now. They obviously didn't send you the memo.
