I would never compare them with the West indies but saying some of the others are Cannon fodder is highly inaccurate. Even though Australia is not as good as it use to be, England's bowling attack was brilliant. Anderson, Tremlett, Broad, Bresnan & Swann are all quality bowlers. India is still a quality side so to beat them show's how good they are.Spider1964 said:Come of it.. get off the drugs.
I'll take Garner, Marshall, Holding, Walsh, Patterson etc! any day of the week.
Seriously, Anderson may be considered to get a game amongst the West Indies greats, Bresnan and Tremlett have their moments, but the others are cannon fodder. Finn, Onions and Shahzad are county military medium pacers at best. Broad averages under 30 with the bat and over 30 with the ball, for him to be mentioned in the same breath as the West Indians would have Malcolm Marshall turning in his grave.
Just because they beat up on a 2nd rate Aussie side and a stuttering India, does not make them a match for the aforementioned West Indians.
