His records also say that he is a bowler who can bat a bit.
Now, as far as bowling is concerned, Aj-Ag beats Flintoff by
a mile! Look at their bowling records in onedayers. No comparisons
at all. As far as test bowling is concerned, Aj-Ag has a match-winning
spell against the best team in the world in its own soil. Flintoff
could muster 5-58 against a 3rd rate team at best!!
Also, Flintoff looked great last summer when he made that 142 against
SA and got MOS. Aggy was nowhere then having missed playing in the
Cup. But come Dec, he shook India atleast with his performance in Aus
and shut his critics well. Now, for all of Flintoff's escapades with
bat this summer, lets see how Aggy responds later this year in the
But once and for all, lets put this arguement to rest. Agarkar is a
who can bat a bit in the tail whereas Flintoff is a 4th seamer
This shouldn't stop us from enjoying their escapades, be it with the
ball or bat. Personally, i think both are coming of age gradually
after having a roller coaster ride at the beginning of their careers
for a few years.

Why dont you check Flintoff and Aggy's ODI bowling performances?
After you are done with that, check Flintoff and Aggy's first 15 matches.
They are a true indicator of the potential one has. The rest depends on
whether the selectors let you in, how fit you are, where you play etc etc.
You will spend the next few years of your life doing that to no avail.

There is very little point continuing this as before I checked
Statsguru I was convinced from the build-up he was getting that I was
going to find Agarkar had 150 test wickets at 25, the reality is far
Does anyone actually watch One Day Internationals any more ? They
killed any interest I once had with these interminable triangular
jokes. If I can be bothered to watch one I genuinely don't care who
wins, they are like fast food, you don't remember one by the next day.
