You want posters to express their views on the above fact? Skunt, there is nothing here which is debatable or warrants discussion.

You may wish to start a Virat thread to say "Virat woulda average 74.66." This would lead to a discourse.

Your obsession with average means that you're an average person.

Come on, Devin. Elevate yourself to the superlative(s)…

Highest score

Most runs

Best opener

Fastest scoring rate

Those are only a few examples.

He is competitive like many West Indians but suffers low self esteem like many West Indians and must prove himself like many West Indians-the best, the fastest, the greatest, the fattest, the best bits and pieces . . .

Devin trying his hand at trolling. Think it easy, due to the ease with which Mr. Sudden does it.

West Indian is a state of mind brother- the postcolonial condition- Who can deny the the absolute persistence of “vertical” threads of domination and exploitation, which have brought us here- to this place of low self-esteem, deprecation and mindless competition ... that the greatest of us must be Jamaican or Guyanese and as for the utterly stupid, like Devin or the foreign virus (left unnamed), nothing great comes from here ... Like the pits of sh!t left on a hot Bombay street . . . .

The phrase 'the postcolonial condition' is usually invoked with respect to the particular state, as well as the common circumstances, of the many colonies that were freed from colonial rule during the second half of the twentieth century and are now living on the legacy of colonialism.

Headley played 22 Tests and batted 40 times, how the fack can he be the greatest anything?

16 tests against one team, 5 against another, and one against India.

It's like this Bradman foolishness and his 99.99 average. They might as well have been bowling underhand back then, at least that would've been faster. Bradman played ALL his cricket against England.

The point here is that Chris Bail Gail Fail is easily Jamaica's greatest batsman. I know it's not a great testament to Jamaican batsmanship, but ah so it ah go.

When it comes to Jamaicans and batting, it's more a case of Jamaican't.

Sticky wickets don't matter when every fast bowler back then used to jog to the crease, stop, turn sideways, and bowl.

I told you he was there- He even knew the wickets were sticky. Some type of alternative timeline too because Bangladesh was there for Headley to bat against. This is some kind of time stone-Thanos shit . . . cool

In 1988, The Cricketer magazine placed him in an all-time West Indian team,[124] as did a panel of judges for another such team in July 2010,[125] while in 2004, another panel of experts named him among the top five West Indian players.

Forget this sh!t, Devin was there

Headley was particularly effective on bad batting wickets. C. L. R. James calculated that Headley averaged 39.85 and passed fifty on seven occasions in thirteen innings on difficult wickets. According to James's reckoning, Bradman in similar conditions passed fifty once, and averaged 16.66 in fifteen innings

Who the hell is CLR James? He not from Hindia?

Official recognition came Headley's way when he was awarded the M.B.E. in 1956 and was made an honorary life member of the MCC in 1958

That "M" is not for Mumbai, so who cares?

So what? On those days, they played on uncovered pitches that today would be deemed unsafe and match abandoned as a result.

An average of over 35 on those pitches would be a good one....

In the end, what matters is what your overall Test average is when you retire.

Headley was very talented but 20 test matches cannot be used as a barometer of greatness. Did he have the potential to be great, I would say yes.
