You obviously did not read what was written, but that is ok.

I read it from the Original poster ....

and understood the intent...

SOBERS(8032 runs/57.78 avg/35.00% consistency) vs CHANDERPAUL(10830 runs/51.81 avg/35.45consistency)


OBSERVATION:

Sobers murdered the weak bowling of the subcontinent teams---he averaged 83.48 in 18 tests against India and 89.45 in 8 tests against Pakistan. But Sobers was ordinary against Australia--in 19 tests against Australia he averaged only 43.14 and he failed miserably against New Zealand---in 12 tests against NZ he averaged 23.76.


Having said that---Sobers' career must be judged in its entirety---and in 93 tests he scored 8032 runs at an average of 57.78 and a consistency of 35%.


Any batsman with a 50+ test average and a consistency of 35% is a bonafide great----unless that batsman is named Shiv Chanderpaul----in the West Indies only Sobers, Lara, Richards and 3Ws can be great----Chanderpaul will have to change his name to Charles to be perceived as a great with his great stats.

I really do not care about the intent of any other post.

What I posted is very clear to anyone and they can draw their own conclusions without any obfuscation.

I wish I had a time machine so that I could go back to witness Sobers' first century in Australia made in that very famous tied test at Brisbane.

The well noted Australian writer J.H. Fingleton described it as "An Immortal Innings by Sobers".

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
