He had to bowl 20 - 25 overs in day and sometimes even more than that. As an all rounder he had alot work load as other trundlers did do their job. Stats sometime don't reveal many things.

Against strong sides, he bowled 4,100 overs in 197 inns, which is around 21 overs per inning (not day) :facepalm:

Kapil need to be evaluated based on the adversities he had to deal with in  bowling and  based on the position he batted w.r.t batting.

 

for instance take this one data.In his first 21823 balls(almost similar to Botham's 21815) where he averaged 29.11,Kapil's support bowling  unit's combined avg: was only 38.8.For Botham the respective value was only 31.53. See the big difference of 38.8 - 31.53 = 7.27. In other words when ever Kapil played a test till his
first 21823 balls, he bowled along with basically 3 fellow bowlers in general(assuming the team combination is 6 batsmen + 4 bowlers in general for the sake of this situation) who avg:ed 38.8 each, where as for Botham it was only 31.53 !!!!!!!

 

Another factor is work density.

Botham bowled 21815 balls in 14 y,10 m & 19 d that is 5433 days.
Kapil bowled  21823 balls in 11y, 3 m & 21 d that is  4128 days
that is a difference of 1305 days or 31.61%

Work density of Botham is 21815 balls/14.897 years =1464.389 balls/year.

Work densiy of Kapil  in first 21823 balls/11.308 years = 1929.873 balls/year.
Means 1929.873-1464.389= 465.484.So every year Kapil had to bowl 465.484/1464.389 = 31.79% more the no: of balls Botham had to bowl till his first 21823 balls, which is a big difference.

Your work density of balls bowled per year are wrong

You are only quoting test balls bowled not actual total balls bowled by each in a year. 

that is the basic data. you shall conclude what ever based on that
