I have never considered Cook a flat track bully. That assertion is just ridiculous.
Stricken from my mind already.
Adam Voges averages 99.00 v NZ
Easy to admit
Voges >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>everyone else
Not sure what game you'd have to be watching to label Cook a flat track bully. An accomplished performer in all conditions.
Because of this thread. I looked up comparative stats.
Cook averages 46. 45 in England with 14 tons. Away, 47 with 17 tons.
I was surprised to see how much his performances are unaffected overall.
Compare this to Matty Hayden. Avg 57 in Aus with 22 tons, and 41 away with 8 tons.
Matty Hayden's a great player, and I knew he benefitted from the preference of flat decks from CA. But I didn't realise how wide the difference was.
I think Mr Spock has been taken by aliens...
As I have said repeatedly massive overrated flat track Bully. And a Merkin to boot.
I said as much on Twitter to an English mate in a random convo between ourselves. I had 25 messages from Indians. I didn't even mention Sachin. I merely said I was just speakign to my old man and we both agreed he's the best we have seen. Kohli and Sachin ended up in my mentions.
