    Sri Lanka in Bangladesh: 2022

    316 out of 348 runs from the bat made by two players, that's 91%. Can't be too many completed innings with a higher proportion of runs scored by two players, other than maybe some very low scores.

    Sri Lanka in Bangladesh: 2022

    The ATG Teams General arguing/discussing thread

    Didn't Junaid Siddiq debut with Tamim in that series - they had one magic session at Dunedin before crumbling the following day? Junaid also better than Javed Omar. But yeah, Habibul opens in the Bangladesh all time team... Tamim Habibul Mominul Mushfiqur Shakib al H Mahmudullah Liton Das *...

    Who is Pakistan's greatest spin bowler?

    Where does 40 years come from? Your list goes from 1952 to 2022, which feels like 70 years to me....

    The ATG Teams General arguing/discussing thread

    Yes the only other contender for no. 3 is Barrington (or whichever of Hutton or Sutcliffe isn't opening). Barrington averaged 77 at number 3. (But also has a hole in his record vs West Indies, like Hammond.)

    Who is/was the ultimate, most proficient and masterful medium-paced-dibbly-dobbler?

    It's a role that seems to have disappeared. Nowadays batsmen who bowl part-time tend to bowl spin a la Root, Williamson, Smith. I had a look at tests played around 1999-2000 (since that seemed to be peak England dibbly selections..) and top 6 batsmen who bowled a reasonable amount, or were...

    *Official* England in West Indies 2022

    Not being able to watch this - is the tail sticking around just the ball being older, or is batting not quite as hard as the top order made it look?

    CW's Ranking of Batsmen (Tests)

    Just checked the list.... Mohammad Yousuf anyone? Along with Hussey, I think he's the only one missing with a 50+ average and a long career. Bruce Mitchell a notable absentee too...

    NZ's 2nd greatest test bowler.

    I voted Cowie, but I'm a sucker for the older players who didn't get the opportunities of today's players. I also pick Dempster in my all-time kiwi xi, (and I kind of want to pick Donnelly at 5 as well, but Taylor's done just enough...).

    Am I missing something, or how does Jack Gregory not get a mention in this sort of list?

    *Official* England in West Indies 2022

    Bonner is like Chanderpaul from the mid-2000s. Now if they can just find a Gayle and a Sarwan to help him out sometimes....

    CW's Ranking of All-Rounders (Tests)

    I'm late to this thread - would have had Goddard, Gregory, Greig, Procter & Mushtaq ahead of Stokes. Goddard my vote for the next one.

    *Official* England in West Indies 2022

    That is one miserable West Indies batting line-up. How is Campbell back in the side? With a long tail to boot. Mayers - or any other batting allrounder if he's injured - for Joseph seems a no-brainer... I think England probably have enough now for a first innings lead. (I accept that this...
