    imo we should only judge players by bad performances against minnows. e.g Sehwag, Hayden and Root are complete trash because they couldn't score against Bangladesh.

    Do you bowl bouncers at your 4 year old son? If you do, you are a wanker. (I might add this as a new qualification to my wankers thesis - those who bring their A game against C graders)

    If anything I would say the complete opposite of this is the truth

    Well seeing as Rashid is rated as one of the worst spinners ever on here and he picked up 4 wickets in an innings it clearly doesn't count.

    If Rashid was Australian I would be delighted to have him ahead of Nathan Lyon

    not sure where this hate for him comes from

    edit: Test average of 51 though . . . I may be overrating him based on seeing him bowl well in T20s

    The fact that so many books still name the Beatles as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art.

    Is Saifuddin any good? Looks like he did well in the U19 world cup as a pace bowling allrounder. He could fill the void in the current Bangers team.

    I know Rashid took some wickets in Bangladesh's 2nd innings but I wasn't all that impressed. Mishra has a much nicer action and gets a lot more loop and drift. And obviously there's Yasir Shah.

    More important question is whether wickets for a spin bowler against England in the subcontinent should matter. I'd say yes but I maybe biased because of my love for Ashwin.

    Results against any team from the subcontinent mean nothing. Bangladesh are at the bottom of that pile admittedly, but it most definitely is a pile.

    Salamuddin had been posting here on and off for years and has always been full of hateful bile. Never much rated him tbh.

    The Bangladesh and Zimbabwe runs/wickets don't count theory was a weird Richardism, I doubt many people subscribe to it.

    I think there are certain players who's record certainly benefit from playing them more regularly (Murali, for instance, when you compare him to Warne - Warne took more wickets against the established top 8 of his era) and some players' records are definitely flattered by performances against them (cough Irfan Pathan cough).

    It's only for someone like Pathan that I would seriously asterisk Bangladesh now, but I don't tend to go for the whole breaking down a players' record to the nth degree thing anyway.
