@rob paul , whats the maximum height cook can be in this photo?
Editor Rob
I think this is close to how he seemed in person, sometimes a person can look shorter or taller...I think anywhere up to 6ft 3 you could argue.
Rahul roy said on 29/Mar/21
@ ROB PAUL, is he ( cook) handsome enough for films?
Editor Rob
I'm sure he would be, if he had the talent and interest in going into that field.
Rahul roy said on 24/Mar/21
@ rob paul, what if cook is actually full 6'3" like he has hidden height.
Editor Rob
In person I am not sure he looked a big 6ft 3 guy, though he looked taller than 6ft 2 guys do.

@ rjt , cook is definietly this height. But you know never know like if his eyelevel is 5 inches and not 4.75 then he can get 6'2.75" listing. Not every 6'2 6'3 person has same 4.75" eyelevel.
RJT said on 3/Mar/21
The more I look at Cook, he does look legit 6'2.5" even look taller than both Routh/Welling at least from your picture.

@Editor Rob

Is 6'2.5" to 6'3 difference really noticeable in person if we don't look at the two shoot picture?
Editor Rob
to most people I think they would class guys that height range (6ft 2.5 or 3) as looking similar.

Height estimates can fall within a range, sometimes it's narrow or a bit wider.

Seeing people with other attendees, other guests and even the photographer can help you try to guess, as does measuring many people at different heights and trying to build a memory of how various heights look from your own perspective.
Rahul roy said on 29/Jan/21
@ rob paul, who would measure taller between cook and shemaus ? Both listed at 6'2.5" and both have a photo with you.
Editor Rob
In person it is tricky to really say one has better chance of measuring taller. Both seemed at least 6ft 2, but neither looked as tall as 6ft 3...
Sakz said on 20/Jan/21
@Inches_to_cm I'd be surprised if Crawley was much under 6'5, since he looked about 5 inches taller than Root. Could be 6'4.75 if not the full 6'5. Sibley looks around 6'3 and haven't seen too much of Lawrence, though he looked comfortably over 6'0.
Inches_to_cm said on 17/Jan/21
Some relatively new English batsmen....Zak Crawley, Dom Sibley and debutant Dan Lawrence. What would you say guys? All tall lads, Crawley is apparently 6'5, Sibley probably strong 6'2 or weak 6'3 like Cooky (but he's listed at 6'6 on Wiki lol) and Lawrence similar to Sibley?
2pacalypse wow said on 5/Jan/21
@Rajiv roy, yeah probably. She towered Warner in high heels and looks similar to Smith.

I don't think even 5'7" is possible for him.
Rajiv roy said on 4/Jan/21
@ 2pacalypse wow,kl is similar to ashwin in height. Dhoni kohli similar range.both Could be 5'9.5. Anushka is legit 5'8". Sachin is a weak 5.5 guy more like 5'4.75". Do you know how tall is female cricketer ellyse perry ? 5'8 🤔
Rajiv roy said on 4/Jan/21
@ vincent caleb, yes cook is comfortably taller than 6.2 . 6'2.5" or at least 6'2.3/8 " . But more 6'2.5" or 5/8 range. So 6'2.5" is spot on. Cook looks more 6'2.5" than wwe wrestler shemeaus does with rob paul. Both of them listed at 6'2.5".
2pacalypse wow said on 4/Jan/21
Kohli is about 1-1.5 inches taller than his 5'8" ish wife. I thought she was wearing high heels but they're flats with a little heel I think so probably similar footwear.

Click Here

Click Here

Sachin Tendulkar is a little shorter than the 5'5" listings so probably 5'4'.5" range

Ms Dohni is very similar to Kohli, can't tell if he's a little taller or shorter so I'd say 5'9.5" range too.

Click Here
RJT said on 4/Jan/21
6'2.5" would be his tallest, not his low.

Even according to the height comparison chart his tophead excluding hair is barely above 6'2.

6'2.25" sounds much better.
2pacalypse wow said on 4/Jan/21
@Roaji roy, that is a fair estimate. I always that Ashwin looked tall, like a minimum 6'1" but he can look 3 inches taller than Kohli.

Click Here

I'd say he's 6'1" range based off this pic, Also Rahul looks 6'0" range considering he's in flip flops.
Vincent Caleb said on 3/Jan/21
Easily 6’2.25” maybe 3/8 candidate.
Rajiv roy said on 3/Jan/21
@ 2pacalypse wow, i think this is final.
Warner- 5'6.5"
Smith- 5' 8.75"
Kohli- 5'9.5"
Although Some photos they all can be .25 or .5 inch higher or lower . How tall is ravi ashwin? 6'0.5" maybe.
Rajiv roy said on 3/Jan/21
@ chilling, here in my state west bengal, people generally claim around 1 inch higher than their actual height. Not as much as american or any western countries people.not sure how much higher height people claim other parts of india.but yeah rahane is not short he is average comfortably. Kohli is 5'9.5".Busting a Gut height is right or wrong i really cant tell. But looks wrong to me.
Chilling said on 2/Jan/21
2 cm error? Rob's old stadiometer had an error of 2 mm (0.2 cm). 2 cm is too much, unless they're using cheap, untrustworthy equipment which is really bad.
I don't think the measurements would have been too early morning, certainly not right out of bed. And I'm on the fence about Busting a Gut because a lot of people measure that way and nobody calls it cheating. Okay, if we go by 5'8, Rahane would be within the average range but under the point estimate.
I guess it comes down to the fact that all the Aussies and most Indians are taller than Rahane, looking at the cricket teams. So even if you disregard the studies, I suppose there's a reason.
Another fact could be that Indians are very fond of height inflation (only the US can possibly beat India). I'm sure you experience this a lot Rajiv. Indians may think that Kohli is 5'9 and say oh Rahane is shorter than him, he must be super short (without having met him in person). The guy saying this on the other hand, will be 5'8 claiming 5'10. So you have that sort of mentality as well.
2pacalypse wow said on 2/Jan/21
@Rajiv roy, yeah I agree. Here's a good pic of Smith, Kohli, and Warner in one shot.

Click Here

I think you could argue, 5'6.5" for Warner, 5'9.5" for Kohli and Smith scraping 5'9".

Click Here

But sometimes Kohli can look just 5'9".
Rajiv roy said on 1/Jan/21
@ 2pacalypse wow, pictures can be deceiving at times. Steve smith is not even 5.9 forget about 5.10. He maybe about 5'8.5" to 5' 8.75" range. But then again his forehead is huge compared to kohli. So who knows he could be 5.9 or hair over. Smiths eyelevel could be 5 inch long compared to kohli's 4.5".
Rajiv roy said on 1/Jan/21
@ inches to cm, i dont believe on those studies. Measurement device like stadiometre can have easily 2 cm error. And also dont know when those measurements were taken , did they breath in for messurement. I think more like 5'8" is average for young upper class private schools of urban areas is possible. Early morning measurement or Bust a Gut measurement can increase your height by half inch. But yeah 3 inch above average is lot. I think rahane is average range according to delhi or punjabi people height.
Inches_to_cm said on 1/Jan/21
@Rajiv, about Rahane I'd go with 5'7, 5'6 is too low I'd guess. So the countrywide average is 5'5 or so, I believe. But there was a study about 18 year olds in 2014, who were privately educated middle and upper/upper-middle class, from urban areas. I came across this a few months ago. The median height was around 5'8.5, much higher than the countrywide average.
So if you are an Indian journalist who is middle or upper-class, you would be very likely to bump into many people north of 5'7. Having lived in India for a while, I know that among richer people, 5'9-5'11 range is fairly common, and 6'0-6'1 isn't uncommon at all. Beyond 6'1-6'2 is rarer, but not impossible to find. This was in Delhi anyway, where you tend to have taller Punjabi people, as compared to say Mumbai, where there are more Maharashtrians and Gujaratis.
Another is if you compare Rahane to the other dudes on the field. The shortest Aussie would be Matthew Wade (Warner hasn't been playing), and he is 5'7.5 as per your guess (that'd be accurate I think). The Indians as tall as or shorter than Rahane are Jadeja (he may be a bit taller), Pant and Shaw. Vihari,Pujara,KL Rahul, Ashwin, Bumrah, Kohli, Shami, Siraj, Agarwal....they are all taller.
So among Indians as a whole, Rahane is perfectly average or even above average. But India is a big country, he is a cricket player, so I guess you need to consider all this.
2pacalypse wow said on 31/Dec/20
@Rajiv roy, Smith can look over 5'10" sometimes so I'm confused

It would be interesting to meet him and see for myself since I'm 5'9". If I ever do maybe I'll post it here.
Rajiv roy said on 31/Dec/20
@ inches to cm, yes after mcg win he would feel like the tallest man in the world. But how tall do you think rahane really is? Dont know why commentators call him as a short stature guy. Strong 5'7 in india is around the average range in india. Maybe a bit taller than average. He does not look much shorter than kohli
Inches_to_cm said on 29/Dec/20
Rajiv after today's win at the MCG, Rahane probably feels around 10 feet tall.
Chilling said on 29/Dec/20
Nathan Lyon is underlisted on Wikipedia I believe. He's a weak 6'0 at the least if you ask me, probably 6'0 on the dot.
Rajiv roy said on 29/Dec/20
@2pacalypse wow, dont think rahane is that short. Maybe 5'7.25" is possible. Look about good 2 inch shorter than kohli.
2pacalypse wow said on 28/Dec/20
@Rajiv roy, Rahane could be 5'6.5" I think.
2pacalypse wow said on 28/Dec/20
@Rajiv roy, yeah obviously we're just guessing but there is off course some margin for error. Good listings. Although I can't see Wade above 5'7".
Rajiv roy said on 28/Dec/20
Nope. Its not. Wade is 5' 7.5". Finch 5' 8.5" . Khwaja 5'8.25" .maxwell 5' 11.75" . Paine 5' 11. Ponting- 5'8.5" peak currently 5'8. Clarke - 5'9.75" . Late hughes - 5' 6.5".warne - 5'11" peak currently 5' 10.5" . Lee - 6'0.5" peak currently 6'.25". Thats more accurate.
2pacalypse wow said on 27/Dec/20
Steve Smith- 5'8.75"
David Warner-5'6.25"
Aaron Finch-5'8.25"
Mathew Wade-5'6.75"
Tim Paine-5'10.5"
Usman Khawaja-5'8.5"
Glenn Maxwell-5'11.5"
Nathan Lyon-6'0"
Pat Cummins-6"3"
Mitchell Starc-6'5.25"
Josh Hazzlewood-6'4'75"

Some legends

Ricky Ponting-5'8'5"
Micheal Clarke-5'10"
Micheal Hussey-5'10.5"
Justin Langer-5'5'75"
Phillip Hughes-5'5'75" (R.I.P)
Shane Warne-5'11"
Brett Lee-6'0.5"

I think this is a pretty accurate listing from what I've observed.
Rajiv roy said on 27/Dec/20
@2pacalypse wow, i think 5 foot 6.5 like warner in that photo. Langer tilted his head down. Possibly 5.7 at peak. Ponting i believe 5 foot 8.5 at peak currently about 5.8 .smith maybe weak 5.9. These are all guesses really. We dont know their true height. I always get confuse about ajinkya rahane's height. When he first came into international arena, did not even look legit 5.6. After few years he looked taller like almost 5.7. But comparing his height with kohli. He looked 5'7.5". Is he growing at the age of 32? Surely not.
2pacalypse wow said on 26/Dec/20
@Rajiv roy, yeah a weak 5'9" is always possible for Smith. Btw, what do you peg Ricky Pointing at? He's listed 5'9"-5'10" but he's not quite that tall. I'd say 5'8.5". Always that he looked rather short on the field but he's taller than I thought. The most overlisted cricketer is Justin Langer. He's listed 5'10" everywhere but isn't anything over 5'6", lol.

Rajiv roy said on 25/Dec/20
@2pacalypse wow, sorry but 5.9 for steve smith is bit too much. 5'8.75" is real posibility . Kohli could be 5'9.5".smith could be 5'8.5" too .
2pacalypse wow said on 24/Dec/20
@Rajiv roy, yeah Warner I think is probably 5'6.25"-5'6.5" 169 cm is probably a fair listing without meeting him. Steve Smith has a good 2.5 inches on him so he's probably 5'9" range. Burst Kholi is a little taller so 5'9.5" is probably a good shout.
Rajiv roy said on 24/Dec/20
@2pacalypse wow, i thought strong 5.6 like 5'6.25" for him. But looks a good 169 cm or 5.6 and a half guy . So want rob to list him at 5 foot 6 and a half or 169 cm.
2pacalypse wow said on 20/Dec/20

Rob, how tall is Australian cricketer David Warner? Here he is with 5'8" ish Mark Wahlberg. I think he can look 5'6"-5'6.5". He's listed 5'7" and I honestly thought he was a weak 5'6" before seeing this photo but now I'm not so sure. He's been described 5'6"-5'7" in the past. What's your guess?
Editor Rob
could be 5ft 6.5 with Mark
Chilling said on 23/Nov/20
Rajiv, don't think you can post here. You can put in a hyperlink to a photo online, or put a photo you have onto some hosting website and paste that hyperlink.
Dave Mills said on 20/Nov/20
@Rajiv Roy sorry, I have no idea dude
Rajiv roy said on 18/Nov/20
@ dave mills, how to post a pic on this website? Please tell me
Rajiv roy said on 18/Nov/20
@ dave mills, kohli can look 176.5 cm or 5.9 and a half mark.i think he is this height. He might have grown 0.5 inch.
Rajiv roy said on 18/Nov/20
@ rampage clover, if cooky easily clears 6.2 then he cant be 6 foot 2.25 inches.he has to be 6. 2 and half. I think this is his true height.but then again eye level are different for every person even at similar heights. His eyelevel can be 5 inches too and not 4.75 inches
Dave Mills said on 18/Nov/20
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover cricketer's physical stats are often registered in late teens and often they even debut internationally at ages 18 or 19.thus they often tend to look taller than their listing, Virat Kohli (An Indian Cricketer) debut at the age of 19 and has been listed as 5'9 ever since but since there's a slight chance of growth at that age , I won't be surprised if Rob ends up listing him between 5'9 & 5'10(that is if he does ever get listed).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Nov/20
I think there's a 50/50 chance of this guy measuring either 6ft2¾ or 6ft2¼. He easily clears 6ft2 but doesn't quite make the 6ft3 mark tends to be more accurate with their player profiles.
Rajiv roy said on 16/Nov/20
Rob, would you be shocked if cook is measured at 6 foot 2.75 inches around lunch time? Like if his eyelevel is 5 inches and not 4.75 inches.
Editor Rob
wouldn't be a big would be more of a shock a flat 6ft 2 for him!
Rajiv roy said on 12/Nov/20
@ inches to cm, do you think cook needs to be upgraded a bit like quarter inches?
Editor Rob
I feel around 189 is what he could measure
Inches_to_cm said on 11/Nov/20
Rajiv Roy.....I really can't say, haven't paid too much attention. Haven't met either of these guys in person, but did see Cook in public once, and he looked 6'3 or so, a bit taller than most of the crowd.
Rajiv roy said on 9/Nov/20
@ chilling, bro how tall is james anderson ? I think 6 foo 1 and a half is possible yeah. Another thing do you know how tall is dale steyn? Google listed him at 179 cm.
Chilling said on 3/Nov/20
Amending my previous comment with a better photo Click Here

So the guy on the left is Jimmy Anderson (Wiki has him at 188cm) and the guy in the middle is Graeme Swann (Wiki has him at 185cm)...what would your guess be?
Editor Rob
might not be far off 185
Chilling said on 3/Nov/20
Rob, how tall would you say Graeme Swann is (Click Here listed at 185 cm on Wikipedia.
Rajiv roy said on 9/Oct/20
Looking at you beside cook i think 189.2 cm is possible. Because you are 173 cm and with half inch hair 174 cm. Cooks left eye was probably 3 cm higher. So 177 cm. Avg eye level is 11.5 cm . So 188.5 cm . But he is a tall guy . So eye level would be 12.2 cm or 4.75 inch . So 189.2 cm or 6 foot 2 and a half. But is it his afternoon height rob? Please tell me.
Editor Rob
This was near lunch I believe.

I forgot to mention I was in the queue beside a very tall guy in front of me, Alastair actually commented on the guy's tall height, he was about 6ft 6.
Big T said on 10/Aug/19
His ‘official’ listing is only 6’2”....not convinced he’s any taller in this photo?
SharpshooterTom said on 10/Aug/19
Its worth noting most of the very best batsman to ever play the game are often quite short, certainly sub 5'10

Sachin Tendulkar = 5'4/5'5
Brian Lara = 5'8
Ricky Ponting = 5'8
Virat Kohli = 5'8/5'9
Steve Smith = 5'9
David Warner = 5'6 (really think he's barely this)
Kumar Sangakkarra = 5'9/5'10
Viv Richards = 5'10

Of course you'll get the likes of KP and Cook who excel, but they're the exception not the norm, often the very very best, i.e. the GOAT's, usually are average at best.

Seam bowlers on the other hand could be basketball players (except for Dale Steyn)

Thanks for putting up cricketers Rob. Your not a cricket fan as you say but there are a lot who are and we really do appreciate it. Would be great if you could get any more e.g. Jimmy Anderson, Stuart Broad, Joe Root, Ben Stokes etc.
Linke said on 10/Aug/19
Absolute legend! Was listed 6'2 during his England days.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Aug/19

Editor Rob
Yes, I was aware of Cook.
Canson said on 10/Aug/19
Agree with Andrea. Looks at least 6’2” not 6’2.5. I think something like 189 cm fits better or perhaps 6’2.25 than 6’2.5 at least based on the picture with Rob

Easy 6’2, I see up to 6’2.75 but 6’2.5 is fine. Can even fool you for 6’3 upon first glance.

Great new picture, Rob! Alastair exudes friendliness and looks the 6ft2.5 you have given him.

Andrea said on 9/Aug/19
Not sure about 6'2.5, but it certainly looks like he would be at least 6'2, from the pic (although his thick hair skews things a bit).
Editor Rob
I don't really watch cricket, but I was aware before meeting Alastair he had been described at 6ft 2, sometimes even 6ft 3 by people.

For me, he did seem a bit taller than 6ft 2 flat - sometimes though, he has looked 2 inches shorter than kevin pietersen...but that guy is what you call 6ft 4 at night really.
