    Lol fun topic.

    Just define what you mean by overrated and underrated here. Do you mean overrated/underrated by CW? Or by cricketing world in general? Or just players we don't like (overrated) and players we like (underrated)

    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    Hmmm... both criterias sound interesting so use whichever you please. I just had cricketing world in general for mine as I still don't know CW's opinions inside and out

    It's hard to call any player overrated, there are no specific standards to be judged with.

    Underrated : Shivnarine Chanderpaul. Bloke's played 164 tests, made nearly 12000 runs at an average of 51.37 and is treated like a ghost in fandom arena.

    So essentially right up there with Sachin stats wise(my choice for overrated, which you abstained from) yet you would not find one person who'd wouldn't laugh at you if you suggested Chanderpaul was on Sachin's level, despite both having faced the tough '90s attacks(though I guess he avoided Ambrose and Walsh)

    overrated: Dennis Lillee
    underrated: Glenn McGrath
    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
