    Graeme Wood > Tendulkar IMO.

    His average is closer to Tendulkar's than Tendulkar's is to Bradman's.

    Bradman's average still baffles me. The fact that 40 means a very good player, 50 basically means an elite player, and that no one averages over 60, and then there's one **** sitting on 100. Astounding.

    I personally think people should look beyond averages.

    I think averages should be overlooked when judging a player as they are a piece of statistical insignificance.

    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

    An average usually contains four (sometimes three, if you're rubbish enough) digits between 0 and 9 with a decimal point before the last two.
