Bloody Steve Smith.
You’ve got to admire him though, he’s well on the way to being an Aussie, and perhaps all-time, great. Which brings us neatly to yesterday’s question.
Who is the greatest player of all time…?
Anyone you want it to be
The greatest player debate is ultimately futile. There are so many variables – era, teammates, disciplines…
This question was prompted by a minor Twitter spat I had with a guy yesterday. It’s not the first time we have sparred. He really annoys me. I mean, I love stats and he wheels out some good analysis. but completely misses the interpretative point.
Anyway, 5 points to everyone who answered: Tim B (Sreesanth), Alex C (Tendulkar), Jonny G (Bradman / Buttler), Steffen Freund (Lyon).
