    That's a copout answer tbh.

    I'd say the question here is like asking whether say, the young tearaway DK Lillee who took 8/29 is better than a post injury slower but smarter Lillee. It obviously varies from bowler to bowler but the one in peak shape is definitely an immense asset.

    And he did say physical peak vs intellectual peak. So I can't see how people are saying with such ease that the smarter guy is better. Ask yourself if a pre injury Waqar circa 1991-1995 or Shoaib of 99-02 bowling at their peak is any worse than McGrath bowling his best spell. They're not.

    It depends on the batsman.

    I'm quite defensively sound but somewhat offensively lacking, so I'd rather face a bowler who might spray a few loose ones in an over than a guy who I simply can't score off.

    I saw that the thread creator had less posts than me and therefore knew he had to cop it sweet
