    No. Not by a huge distance.

    Ashwin has some ridiculously good numbers as an allrounder away, even if you ignore his insane home record. Averages just over 30 with bat and ball and takes 4.5 wickets per match. Hasn't exactly bowled at stellar bats much tbf though.

    10 years from now some idiots going to use his WPM to prove he's a better all-rounder than Keith Miller

    I actually thought of this exact example. His raw numbers are way ahead of Miller's IMO if you don't account for home/away and quality of opposition.

    Well his numbers are way ahead of Gibbs too. Oh god, I hope Ashwin doesn't gain a cult following but Indian fans aren't the most logical.

    This brings to mind an interesting topic: players who are flattered by their numbers.

    He is a better batsman than Kapil. Not everyone gets a compliment from Sir Vivian Richards for batting.

    I'm not sure how to compare him to Kapil, but I don't think he is flattered by his batting average. He's solid. Great technique. He's obviously heavily flattered by the bowling average. To what degree, I'm not sure, but add 20% for the sake of argument to his average and he still has allround stats like no offie I can think of.

    Maybe Pollock is a better batting comparison. Solid batsman that could have made a lot more runs.

    Kapil's bowling is comparable to Anderson's, IMO. Excellent durability and longevity.

    Pollock and Ashwin sounds about right.

    Anderson and Kapil is fine as you put it. Anderson vs Ashwin as home track bullies makes some sense as well.

    So Ashwin = Anderson's bowling + Pollock's batting?

    Even if that is true, then we're worthless cricket-lovers if we forget about such a cricketer in 10-20 years

    I personally think he's better in both disciplines, or at least he'll end up better in both disciplines (than Anderson and Pollock respectively) when he retires. I'd say he's probably Pollock's bowling+Imran's batting.
