"By the end of 92, he was considered by the 80 greats to be firmly a member of their times."; and
"I am not saying he was a 80s man. But the 80s men like Botham, Hadlee, Imran, Kapil, Marshall, Border were still around in 92, and they considered him a firm fixture of the international circuit."
A member does not have to be a great. All those who are firm fixtures in an international side are members of the time. Would you say the batsmen averaging less than 37 but who had been playing for 6-7 years were not members of those times simply because Imran & Co. don't about them when they sit down to reminisce?
And Ikki, I have said it before, do not speak to me or about me in this manner of "hyperbole", "nonsense", "stretching it" etc. I don't like it. And I hope the answer from your side to that is not - "tough".
