    The only batsmen that we can unequivalently state that Bradman was twice as good as are the other batsmen on his own team.

    Even Headley didn't face all of the English bowlers that he did, but didn't get to face South Africa or India in his prime and he had to face Grimmett and Ironmonger away in Australia instead. So even in the same era it's difficult to compare far less players from later eras.

    I would say that Richards is a lot closer to Bradman as a bat than Chris Martin. And I think Coronis was just winding you up.

    I don't think so. There are a lot of members who do believe that Bradman was twice as good as everyone else and if my memory serves correct Coronis doesn't rate Viv that highly.

    More pertinent question is Sir Virat Kohli or Sir Rohit Sharma.

    No surprise to see Benchmark echo the views of Ian Chappell.

    Don't know about Bradman, but Kohli twice as good as either of them.

    Firstly, the thread is more a comparison between Bradman and Sobers.

    Saying that one is the greatest batsmen and the other is the greatest cricketer is a bit too much tbh.
    Greatest of their time? Yes, would agree on that, but no the greatest.
    Is this your homework Larry?

    If you don't want to compare across eras, fine... I have no issues with that.
    But then why you even start this thread, comparing two players from different periods then?

    haha, yeah, awta
    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
