In regards to the second point, I think the absolute pleasure of watching a Lara innings gives people a slight bias towards him. I think most people would agree he is the better batsman to watch without a doubt, but that doesn't make him a better batsman. For instance I'd say Dravid is a better batsman than Gilchrist, but I'm sure most people would rather see Gilly go about his work (Besides a couple of the defenseaphiliacs we have here).
