    Too many candidates. Amir stands out just because how he was hailed as Wasim Akram on steroids. Right now he's doing a great impression of a washed up Irfan Pathan.

    Anderson has to be part of this conversation. The bowling equivalent of Sehwag. Funnily enough, while SKY commentators are quick to smear batsmen like Sehwag, they shyly skirt around this discussion on Anderson. Imagine being the highest wicket taking quick ever and, yet, being a complete non-factor in India, Sl, SA, NZ, and Australia. Staggering.

    I'll nominate Jimmy Anderson.

    BTW, his own captain Imran Khan writes in his autobiography that Zaheer was a selfish player and was a complete choker when the heat was on, someone who scored soft runs all his career.

    Stated many times after his career was over? And mentally done at the age of 29? Sehwag whopped him so bad that too in his own country that he forgot to bowl after that.

    ‘Complete non-factor” is not accurate. Anderson was a big factor in the series England won in Australia. I will admit that his record in NZ and SA surprises, even since he learned to reverse it in 2010. On the Subcontinent you don’t expect English FM swingers to take a lot of wickets - they become stock bowlers supporting the spinners - though there have been exceptions such as Botham in the Jubliee test. Indian balls bounced a bit more in his day and Wankede is near the sea so there would have been a bit of swing.

    So far his performance has been good. Kinda reminds me of the old Ashraful don't you think? Ashraful will be this for BD, will be that for BD. In reality, he was a below avg player at best, regardless of how much talent he might have had. What is he upto now days?

    Let's put it this way. Pant has more hundreds in tests in AUS than every cricketer that BD ever produced in the history of cricket COMBINED.

    Most of the overrated players are from India and it's quite logical.
    India runs most of the cricket nowadays, they have the media : tv channels, websites (cricinfo & others). So their cricketers are the most talked about.

    Second logical reason : Who overrates more a player? The fans! Indian players have the bigger fanbase due to the large population.

    Even for non indians it's very hard to not buy the overrating as indian media and fans are very vocal and passionate about their players. Even on PakPassion, where we should normally have lot of good cricket followers and so more or so neutral points of view you can easily see the overrating indians players have.
    Lot of complexed fans who just want to be in the flow of things easily buy this overrating of Indian players/team.

    England served proper roads whenever Steyn played in Eng.

    Anderson's avg in Eng when Steyn played : 41 ( Steyn avg is 31)

    Anderson's avg in Eng when Steyn didn't play: 23


    -----------

    Anderson's average in,

    Aus - 35
    SA - 39
    SL - 46
    Ind - 33
    NZ - 32

    Anderson's career is pretty much picking cheap wickets in home tracks with few performances here and there outside home grounds.

    Yes, and Sehwag had his moments in all those countries. Scored centuries to ensure test series drawn against England in 2002 and against the all conquering Australian side in 2003. Of course, unlike you, I am not going to make the laughable argument that India openers/batsmen are not expected to do well in England. Otherwise why be available for selection?

    So regardless of his rare and isolated moments in Australia, Anderson truly was a zero impact player in 5 of the most consequential cricketing nations. Woeful.
