Oh come on. Every tom dick and harry knew Joe Root and Smith would be good. Remove them. Or add De Kock, williamson, Kohli to that.

Did you just tip your hat to yourself?  And for joining Captain Obvious Band-wagons?  waah.

Huh? Did you read reactions to the thread...especially teh Steve Smith one....that got merged and a lot of responses are all over the place....I think it is a perfect case of "First they ignore you,then they laugh at you,then they fight you,then you win and then they state it was the obvious".

Both of them already had international tons before you 'rated their talent'.

 

Smith had an Ashes one in England

So Scoring a ton=calling them an ATG?

 

There are plenty of players who have a 5 wicket haul or 100's that I don't rate...You need to realize what they have gone on and become since then.

 

You pick a prodigy that plays a musical instrument only after he actually plays the instrument right? again there are plenty of people who learn basics of how to play it but if you have an eye for talent,you know the special ones. It is a gift and a curse

Yeah. Rohit Sharma struggling for his test spot, Ishant Sharma released from SRH, Rayudu losing his ODI spot in spite of great Biryani making skills.

PS: By the way, I've always thought of Ben Stokes as an all-rounder with great potential.

Stokes will probably not finish with "great" stats or even many MoM awards, but can be one of those impact players who change matches. Having said that, I've seen enough of peak Botham, and Stokes (even at his peak) is nowhere near that. Peak Botham was better than Anderson as a bowler, and was much better than all current Eng batsman barring Root as a batsman. Sadly, he was ill-disciplined, prone to injuries, etc. and became quite ordinary later on

And we compare him to Pandya. He was there till the end, hit all the boundaries required and never looked like getting out even in difficult position. He was 49 off 80 at one stage. Pandya and Pant on the other hand chickened our and took the east way by sloggjng. They ain’t soaking any pressure. Bunch of wannabe’s

Stokes is leagues ahead of Pandya in batting and bowling.

true. however in ODI bowling (not tests), there isn't much separating them
