Two very different England pace bowlers with comparable records, who is/was the better of the two?


International Regular
People will always throw shade at Anderson ( and also Walsh ) as if all their careers was about was longevity.

It's almost like they forgot the roughly 5 years per-pandemic peak run Jimmy A was on which is up there with all time great peaks. Looking back at the performance in any Bob Willis run, he isn't able to match that at all.
