    How do you rate a cricketer?

    Which circumstances, conditions and situations should one look at when rating a cricketer?

    Actually, that's a good question. Everytime someone brings up stats for a batsman or bowler, invariably there will be a comment saying that one should not rate a cricketer by just stats.

    It actually varies from person to person. A burgey might rate a batsman as good if he plays good fast bowlers well on pitches that aid pace while a smalishah will rate batsmen who plays spin well.

    In short, there is no definitive answer for that question. Factors that can be looked at for a batsman is

    1. Performance away from home
    2. Performance against all sorts of bowlers (fast, swing, spin)
    3. Longevity
    4. Ability to rake up high scores once set
    5. Contributing in partnerships

    I follow a simple flowchart method

    1. Is the player Mike Garnham? If Yes --->2, If No --->3
    2. Player is good
    3. Player is not good

    For bowlers it's the ability to succeed not only on good seamer freindly pitches but also on the subcontinent(dale steyn)

    for batsmen i think it being good against pace and spin that is one of the reasons why i think ab de villiers is better than hash i feel ab is a much better player of spin and hash does struggle sometimes against the short ball whereas ab plays it quite well

    I think what all of us really want to know Dawood, is how do you rate a cricketer?

    Okay, okay. You got me. The real flow chart is a darn sight more complicated than I have made out.

    Amla is pretty good against spin but on a sqaure turner with bounce he would struggle more than de villiers as he seldom uses his feet hardly ever sweeps and i cant really see him dominating a good spinner
