    But his run total (37 less) is less deceiving.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    1999 World Cup - Most Fielding Dismissals

    Moin Khan is ahead because I felt IMO that he was a better all-round package compared to Ridley Jacobs during the '99 World Cup.

    Jacobs batting average is a little deceving considering he only batted four times compared to Khans' nine times.

    Khans' Strike Rate was a whopping 110.50 compared to Jacobs 50.24.
    As Marc said, Jacobs was more productive overall.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    OK.

    Jacobs scored only 37 less runs than Khan, even though he played 5 less innings.
