O.K., Mr. big on insults, small on intellect. Fact is that idolisation of a player is not a standpoint for posing hypotheticals. I doubt it was without reason that Wisden said of him, 'In truth, Hookes had always been a first-class destroyer of second-rate bowling.' He failed to make the step up in the career he did have, and one cannot show that this wouldn't have been the case anyway.Okay Sheldon. Sorry to ask you to use your imagination on a hypothetical question of what could have been had David Hookes not joined WSC lol
Also, because we must obviously allow for imagination, Hookes would not have had his jaw broken by Roberts in Sydney in December 1977. Instead, he would have had his jaw broken by Roberts in Bridgetown in March 1978.
