    I don't think he was that far behind Lee in Australian conditions for most of Lee's career anyway (only at the very beginning and the very end of Lee's career when he was world class was he really a noticeable step up from him), but in Asia it's no contest. Even if we don't recongise that Kasprowicz was better than his 39 average in India, Lee averaged 61 there (and 61 in nine Tests in Asia overall, as opposed to Kaspa's 33).
    Kasprowicz was indeed better bowler than that 39 average in India, it's just that he ran into Tendulkar at his prime and that too in Indian conditions.

    Tendulkar in his prime < Mayank in his prime.

    Fact.

    Fact.
    Yeah and since Mayank's prime is his whole career he is greater than Tendulkar.

    Hobbs
    Hutton
    Bradman
    Mayank
    Rohit
    Sobers

    Best to let the top two openers in history bat down the order in easier conditions.

    Nah, Tendulkar in 1998 on Indian/UAE pitches was literally godlike. He would always be a bit cautious in his approach while batting on livelier pitches outside Asia even in his prime but on those slow Asian pitches and that massive MRF bat, he was a different beast. Also pitches in India now are nothing like the classic dustbowls of the past.

    Taylor scored a 300 on what I seem to remember was a road in pakistan in 98. Don't remember him otherwise doing much in the subcontinent. That 2001 series from Hayden was well superior to what any Aussie opener did in these conditions.

    "Wristspinners will have one advantage if you see because it's going to be very difficult to pick the seam [with black stitches] of the pink ball," Harbhajan told PTI on Tuesday. "When a finger spinner bowls, the ball is released with seam so that there is turn and bounce. When you are bowling the googly, the seam will be scrambled and very difficult to pick."

    Talking about the effect of dew later in the evening, Harbhajan explained: "A lot of people think that the ball will be like a slippery soap bar as it happens with the white ball in day-night games. It's not the same. The white ball becomes slippery because the white lacquer goes off and the ball gets wet.

    "With extra lacquer, pink ball's skin won't get wet but the stitches will be very soggy. And therein lies problem with finger spinners.

    "More lacquer means that you will not have a good grip on the ball, especially fingerspinners, and the ball starts skidding," he said. "In 50-over or 20-over cricket, whenever the ball gets wet, you can just alter the length a bit and let the batsmen play on back foot, allowing those singles. But in a Test match, you have to pitch it up. Now landing six deliveries on one spot while trying to grip a wet seam can be a challenge because trying the ODI length will be easy meat for batsmen."


    Interesting quotes from Harbhajan there.

    Will be more interesting to see what excuses he comes up with after Ashwin gets a 10-fer there...

    There's five bowlers competing for wickets and with so many catches being dropped off his bowling, I don't see that happening.

    Maybe they will find the pink ball easier to spot at slips.

    From personal experience I find the pink ball difficult to see, especially during twilight.

    Interesting to see how the match will pan out. No idea if it will favor the batsmen, pacers or spinners right now.

    I see it fine before and slightly after the batsman hits it, but I definitely tend to lose it along the grass after the shot more than the red or white balls.
