    Atherton played against Ambrose, Walsh, McGrath, Warne, Donald, Pollock, Akram , Waqar....

    Donald names Atherton and Steve waugh the toughest batsmen he bowled to.

    I'd have Cook if it was a road and pace bowlers were bowling 125kph.

    Dizzy >>> Smith

    Smith nowhere near as good when facing the might of Bangladesh.

    Watch him in South Africa, NZ and the Ashes in England where he averages 30.

    McGrath reckons Atherton is one of the hardest batsmen to bowl to. He always says it with a smirk.

    Hayden averaged 60 in South Africa, 50 in England and 50 in NZ.

    The flat track bully averaged 30 in all three.

    I'll take a guess and say McGrath is either a Penrith or Parra fan.

    I'll be stunned if Atherton isn't a through and through union fan.

    I don't know what your problem with Cook is. But I'd guess to say he'd average 41 with a similar career to Atherton's.

    And I'd say, that Atherton would average in single digits if he had to face Marshall, Garner, Lillee, Spofforth, O'Reilly, Trueman, etc.

    All very hypothetical. But hail Mike Atherton, the great man.

    check your stats again champ (this time with proper reading glasses). Haydos doesn't average anywhere near what you say in those countries

    Lol.

    I've heard of rounding up, but I'm not sure 34 really goes up to 60....or even 50. And 28 in NZ really doesn't fly as 50

    Id you're going to make a ridiculous argument at least get the facts right. Kinda stunts your credibility when you blatantly make shit up

    Atherton avg 68 vs N.Z, Smith only averages 67 vs N.Z.

    I think this stat clearly shows what what we have all already been thinking, it’s tough to admit but Atherton>>>>>>Smith
