Where is England's stat? At one time in the 80s and 90s they were no better than minnows.
+++
Kallis, Tendu, Ntini, McGrath and many others in both list.

After filtering, I can see why many claims Viv Richards as the best ever ODI batsman or why Australians rate Dean Jones so high.

If you disregard stats against Sri Lanka (who was a minnow back then), it makes little difference for Viv, Jones' average still stay above 40.

players like kallis and yousef is no minnow basher. The reason SN is called a minnow basher around the forum is because when you look at his record his stats against G8 nations say one thing, and his stats against minnows say another thing. that's why he is a minnow basher. i'm sure that is not the case for kallis and yousef. i don't have time right now, but later on in the day i'll dig up yousef and kalli's stats against G8 nations to see what they look like.

Viv Richard's SR is too good. 90 SR of that time is equal with 105+SR of current imo. Yet some people rate Sachin and Sehwag higher than him.

I don't see why the term minnow basher and giant basher have to be mutually exclusive. Especially if you have a much higher average against minnows than you do against giants, the term minnow basher should be very appropriate for you. In that sense Kallis, Tendulkar, Murali, etc are all minnow bashers (and great ones in this aspect as they are in giant bashing).

Viv is the king. No batsman ever owned the Bowling as thoroughly as Viv did. The pitches Viv played on would be called mine field by today's standard, yet ther's not one in today's crop that comes close to his dominating, vicious brilliance.
