Except I didn’t start with the virtue signalling.I believe everyone should have an opinion, not matter how skewed this opinion may be by an existing agenda or how unqualified they are to give one
Here is mine: Sarah Taylor is the best female wk ever. Her glove work and abilty to move her feet quickly whilst remaining balanced is far beyond anything Ive seen at club level
Is she the best in the world? No idea, Ive not seen enough of other keepers. Could she have kept in the mens game? Her technique looks good enough but it would have been a new challenge. Standing back with a wobbling ball would have took a lot of work.
In all likelihood, her batting would have excluded that
With all that in mind, we should really be celebrating a tremendous career and not trying to score some anti pc/virtue signalling points. As me ewld nana used to say, If you can’t say anything nice...........
It’s a forum about opinions and when muppets claim she’s the best wicketkeeper in the world - I am entitled to call them out on it.
The women’s seamers? The last one I saw labelled as ‘quick’ was hovering around the 65mph mark. That Aussie they rave about.Point of order, pretty much all the international seamers are above 70mph. Some of them are high 70s with the odd ball touching 80+
A quick google search of the fastest woman in history shows a speed of 77mph (125kmph)
