    Both had fearsome porn star moustaches.

    Srinath gets very few wraps. Reckon he was a very good bowler tbh. More consistent than johnson, but MJ’s peaks were Jeff Thomson levels of scary. Would say Johnson was better, but not by very much at all. Javagal massively under sold imho

    Johnson easily better, but Srinath was a fine bowler.

    Srinath looked like a software engineer back in the day. Mitch was a fancier version of Ben Stiller...David Starsky

    It's a toss up. I think Johnson was the better bowler, though not by as large a margin as their averages suggest, but Srinath didn't have those awful tattoos.

    Sreenath actually has a B.Eng degree.

    Srinath was capable of neither the destructive spells nor the absolute dross Johnson could serve up. You'd still pick Johnson 10 times out of 10 over Srinath as much as I loved the guy.

    Srinath's finest moment was when he hit Ponting in the face with a bouncer, went up to him to see if he as ok, and got a torrent of abuse thrown his way from Ponting for having the nerve to do so. Poor bloke. 90s Indian quicks were so mild mannered.

    Srinath was a fine seam bowler and very far from being fearsome.

    Johnson at his peak was impossible to hit, only perfect duckers of ball can face him.
