    Marshall vs Hadlee (overall cricketers)

    Yeah I just don't think this is true at all. Kallis actually is frequently rated above Sachin as an overall cricketer on here (imo maybe incorrectly) , not sure why you're implying otherwise. If people think the primary disciplines are close enough, they will use the secondary to justify rating...

    **Official** English Football Season 2023/24

    Indeed. Its why I loved Imran Tahir.

    Marshall + Steyn vs McGrath + Imran vs Hadlee + Ambrose

    Mcgrath + Imran is an insanely good combination of styles and skillsets.

    Gooch vs Sehwag vs Hayden

    Sehwag 155 at Chennai vs Australia probably qualifies. Brilliant innings.

    Cricket's most over rated players

    Average in wins literally goes up the more you downhill ski tbh. Gavaskar WAG.

    Which current players are/will be ATGs?

    He'll be in the top tier of pacers if he somehow manages it but don't think triple of his current production would make him "easily" the greatest.

    Marshall vs Hadlee (overall cricketers)

    Yeah but Marshall and Hadlee are tied or really close, so it's fair to say the extra batting is a benefit, however small.

    Marshall vs Hadlee (overall cricketers)

    Tbf, they're the alphas of the sport because fast bowlers are the alphas of the sport. Their secondary skill is in most cases slightly less valuable than the fifth bowler skill of batting all rounders. But their primary skill of top tier pace bowling >>> the primary skill of top tier batting...

    Marshall vs Hadlee (overall cricketers)

    None of these comparisons are hypothetical in the sense I was talking about. Even if the players happened to play in different eras, their performances happened. They were real Test matches. Comparing them across eras may be tough but it is still a comparison of real world performances. "How...

    Went with Bradman, Hadlee, Murali in the end. Bradman is an auto pick, went for Hadlee and Murali over the other great pacers/spinners because if I don't know the actual quality of the other bowlers, I think it makes a lot of sense to pick two guys that performed at a very high level while...

    Marshall vs Hadlee (overall cricketers)

    That wasn't a shot at you at all. I said "our nerdy brains" referring to posters who obsess over ATG XIs on this website, which is a lot of people including myself. However, discussing which player would be more valuable in a hypothetical ATG XI match is literally just that, a hypothetical. It...

    Marshall vs Hadlee (overall cricketers)

    I genuinely don't know what you're talking about. One of the points I was getting at is that "Who was the better cricketer?" and "Who is a better choice for an ATG XI game?" are different questions but you often treat them as the same thing.

    Marshall vs Hadlee (overall cricketers)

    Why? They played real Test matches.
  18. OverratedSanity

    Marshall vs Hadlee (overall cricketers)

    Value to a normal Test side to play other normal Test sides is actual, real value of what he actually contributed in his career. Value to some mythical ATG XI we've made up in our minds is fake nonsense that exists in our nerdy brains for an imaginary match that will never happen. It is not real...

    Debate thread for 2024 Ranking of batsmen poll

    Nah this is completely wrong. Hutton faced extremely strong Australia attacks in 1948, 50/51 and 53 which had some combination of Lindwall/Miller/Johnson/Johnston/Toshack/Davidson/Benaud and did well in all of those series. Those attacks are as good or better on paper than anything Viv succeeded...

    Sobers' value lessens here because of Bradman.
