What has more value? Home/away performances or good team/minnow performances

Or are they equal?

Player X comes from hard bouncy Australia and kills minnow Bangladesh, but does it in on a tour to spin friendly Bangladesh

Player Y is from England and kills a touring ATG filled Australian bowling attack, but has the benefit of doing it in his home conditions

What are you more impressed by?

In terms of degree of difficulty, I'm realising Kusal Pereras famous last wicket ton has more cred than Lara and Stokes performance, as it was both done away from home and against a top tier SA bowling attack where as Stokes and Lara were in familiar conditions

In terms of match situation they were all similar of course

An extreme example I guess. I went for it coz I remember Aussie batsmen struggling to score there in 2017, but we still tied the series I guess

Maybe I should have used better examples, but it seems Home and away means less than quality of opposition. Which is interesting

Basically you are asking who is better Test batsman: 1.Warner or Martyn
2. Sehwag or Dravid.

Depends where your side is at, take my side for instance, one will take any kind of win :laugh:. If things were more settled I would take away series victories against anyone barring absolute minnows
