    IVA Richards or Shane Warne? - The 'Aura' factor.

    I think that was just a fanboyish, hyperbolic myth. How many top class leg spinners have SENA countries produced in the three decades since Warne made his name? Like 0. Certainly no more than in the three decades prior to his emergence. MacGill doesn't count as he was already on the verge of...

    Who is the greatest English bowler of all time?

    Most of us have never seen Bradman bat either and he is the automatic pick as the number 3 in a World All Time XI

    How would you rank Pakistan's spinners?

  4. a massive zebra

    How would you rank Pakistan's spinners?

    A highly rated total failure outside his own country, which had probably the most biased and dishonest umpires ever seen.

    Who is closer in terms of cricketer status, Lara & Tendulkar or Warne & Murali?

    Whilst technically true, this point has zero relevance to bowlers of the quality of Murali and Warne.
  6. a massive zebra

    Who is closer in terms of cricketer status, Lara & Tendulkar or Warne & Murali?

    I've always thought this to be a very silly argument indeed. If leg spin was a significantly harder craft to master than off spin, it follows that there should be far fewer ATG leg spinners than off spinners. Yet this simply isn't true - in fact, the opposite is the case. For instance, your own...

    Ashwin vs Warne

    Marshall probably would be humiliated in a proper Bradman vs Marshall poll.
  8. a massive zebra

    Who is the greatest English bowler of all time?

    Lol @ the suggestion of Underwood as England's best bowler ever. Sure he was a quality bowler who won a number of matches for England and maintained consistently strong averages in many countries, but under 3.5 wickets per match across a long career shows he was generally far less impactful than...

    Waugh’s Australia vs Kohli’s India vs Lloyd’s West Indies

    How exactly are Kohli's India very similar in quality to Waugh's Australia or Lloyd's West Indies? This is the correct answer.

    Best individual years from a cricketer

    This is incorrect. Geff Noblet took 282 first-class wickets @ 19.26.
  13. a massive zebra

    Joel Garner vs Waqar Younis

    I don't think he should be, as Waqar in the first half of his career was more destructive than Wasim at any time in his career. But if you listen to players from the 80s and 90s, a lot of them would say Wasim was the best bowler they faced, but not many say that about Waqar.

    Joel Garner vs Waqar Younis

    Two outstanding but very different bowlers who both had a great yorker and who are both somewhat overshadowed by colleagues (Marshall and Akram) in modern day retrospective common consensus. Who was the better of the two?

    Best individual years from a cricketer

    To look at W.G. Grace's dominance another way, these batsmen had scored over 5,000 runs in first class cricket at an average of over 20 by the end of the 1873 season: W.G. Grace 10,669 runs @ 61.51 with 38 centuries. Harry Jupp 9,987 runs @ 24.53 with 8 centuries William Beldham 7,043 runs @...

    Best individual years from a cricketer

    No you couldn't be more wrong here. The true class of Grace shows through when you compare his performances season by season against his leading contemporaries. When he began playing first class cricket, the other leading batsmen were Robert Carpenter, Tom Hayward and Richard Daft. Their career...

    Who was the better bowler?

    Bangladesh
  18. a massive zebra

    Who was the better bowler?

    He got Brian Lara and Mohammad Yousuf out four times each, plus Shivnarine Chanderpaul and VVS Laxman out three times each. These are not terrible players of spin.

    Battle of flat track bullies - Hayden vs Sehwag

    Yes, Hayden is your archetypal flat track bully. Sehwag was not a FTB at all, he was a phenomenal player of spin and a poor player of swing.
