Under rated players

Postby The Professor » Thu Sep 08, 2016 7:46 pm

What players, past or present, do you think were or are under rated? I will start the ball rolling with Virender Sehwag.

To start with his stance used to simply turn me on. It was so unique and worked for him. His body weight clearly shifted between his two feet meant that his stroke play was epic. He also avoided the temptation to move his feet for extra oomph - that oomph just came from the shift of weight.

I think he's one of the all time greats ...and isn't really up there in most lists

Whereas I've always thought him overrated, but that of course may well be due to his relatively poor returns in England.

I'd certainly go with Angus Fraser. Fine bowler.

I'd say that VVS is under rated by English fans in general, and of course the mighty DA.

Still bowling strong at the age of 38, I don't think he's even lost a yard of pace.
