    That's a bit ridiculous I feel. Sharma's first class average wasn't bad at the time of selection.
  2. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Agreed. I rate Davies highly, but having him rated more highly than Ishant Sharma is just a sign of of Cribb's innate bias. I might just select Sydney Grade cricketers next time around as I suspect he'll rate 'em higher.

    It was statistically based. I didn't just sit down and arbitrarily set values.
  4. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Ah. So the fact that Davies has epic first class stats saw him be a good player? Tikolo should have been better than shit then really.
  5. Cribbage RG Cribb

    It's not just based on career stats though. Different competitions were worth different weights (the Intercontinental Cup not rating highly). Beyond that, it was done in a similar way to the NZ draft, so what Tikolo did 15 years ago didn't factor too much.

    At the time of drafting. Sharma averaged 26 in fc cricket including 35? at test level. I thought that India was a fast bowlers grave yard and thus an average of 26 (less when you consider that tests count towrds fc) in those conditions would be pretty good.

    So, statistically speaking Mark Davies should have been injured for 90% of the comp ;)

    Man, we really should have performed better.
  9. Farny AP Farnsworth

    I have to say, I'm with you on that one. At the time of the draft, Sharma was a good threatening, test standard opening quick bowler. Davies was someone who'd never managed to put enough of a run together in county cricket to really threaten the national side.
  10. Baxter MJ Deane

    Yeah but the stats weren't going to include his fitness record were they.. all they said is that when fit, Davies took wickets at 20
  11. Fungus K Fung

    According to that we didn't do too bad actually.

    I'd still take our team over a number of those rated above us. I clearly disagree with Crab's statistical methodology.
