CW's Ranking of All-Rounders (Tests)

Red_Ink_Squid

International Captain
Hammond.

On of the greatest batsmen ever and good enough bowler to balance a side as the 5th bowler in a batting-friendly era. By ICC rankings he was the #1 all rounder for most of his career.

Holder probably does, but he's like De Grandhomme in that his record at home is amazing, while his record away is very poor.


I'd have Reid, Ashwin, and Vettori ahead of Holder, and possibly Oram as well.

It's Ravichandran Ashwin ffs. Spell it right.
'Ravindra' appears in many articles as does an even more abbreviated version (Ravi). You know who he is so don't be so pedantic. How would it be if every Geoff insisted on Geoffrey, Tony demanding Anthony or Bob wanting Robert. It is common for shortened versions of names to be accepted in general use. How come you didn't complain when Sir Garfield appeared as Garry Sobers? Do you want Ben Stokes listed as Benjamin?

Ravindra =/= Ravichandran. These are two different names lol. It's like calling Ravi Shastri (whose full name is Ravishankar Shastri) Ravindra Shastri. And most articles actually get his name right first time round.

EDIT: And you even copied over the right name in the Spinners thread lol.
