Joe Root vs Mark Waugh

Who is the better test batsman?

International Regular
Is it? I know we’re getting into checklist territory here but he averages sub 40 against everyone bar Australia and Windies (who I’ve already covered).

Taylor on the other hand despite playing more teams averages sub 40 against fewer nations (3 compared to 4).

I think Taylor takes it due to longevity and a better rounded record but hey, agree to disagree.
Yeah, let's agree to disagree then. Turner was on opener, played for a weaker team and by well rounded, I meant he averaged 35+ against all the teams.
