    This is a tough assignment. There is a book "Australian Top 100 & First XI" - The authors placed players in eras and then compared them to one another. The problem I had was when they compared Bradman's contemporaries to him. He was so far in front, in the end, and not surprisingly the batsmen of his era struggled to make the final all time team. I thought at the time they should have just accepted Bradman as an anomaly and removed him from the comparison.
    You know it makes sense.

    And I never said that players with higher SR are incapable of playing longer innings. I am just saying that your generalization that most players with higher SR can play longer innings if required is wrong.




    I disagree. Talking about players with same average, Kohli has a higher SR than Kallis but he is not better. Yousuf, Younis and Williamson have higher SR than Dravid but none are better than him. Hayden and ABD have a higher SR than Steve Waugh but they are not better than him.
    Younis is.
