    Comparing their batting or their match fixing?

    I think Azhar made more from the bookies than Hersch.

    He was also a better batsman. Wonderful to watch. He scored a ton at Adelaide (iirc) which was as good to watch as anything you could see.

    I think Azharuddin was the better match fixer as wasn't Gibbs just a follower?

    The better man is always the one who takes the lead in such matters.

    Underrating Gibbs match fixing ability. Deliberately tossed away the World Cup.

    Azhar is an underrated batsman on the same level as Crowe, Clarke, De Silva, Amla etc. IMO. He had a 15 year career in the 80s and 90s averaging 45 over 99 tests. Much better than Gibbs.

    He's also the one of two international cricketers from my hometown and fits the hometown prototype of being very talented, classy, having great basic competence and performing incredible feats in difficult circumstances but also being lazy and not caring about being at the top of the charts or reaching name recognition pretty well. The other cricketer from my hometown fits it to an even more uncanny degree. He is VVS Laxman.

    'Batting average: 45 HS: 281 v. Australia in Kolkota 2001' would be a solid dictionary definition of a Hyderabadi

    It is very close in ODIs but I think Azhar is better. In tests, Azhar is a rung above Gibbs.

    Both were all-time great fielders too.

    Both have their faults

    Tests : Azhar

    ODI : Gibbs

    Azhar was a miserable captain. Just had to post it.

    Preferred Gibbs. Seemed like a better bloke on the whole.
