A+ for effort though.
As for Ryder and Taylor being Bradman 1 and 2, why don't you have take a good large dose of shut-the-****-up. Ryder and Taylor are good batsmen, both on their day able to win matches for NZ, most sane people can see that. Anyone that thinks Ryder or Taylor are near the class of, or ever will be the class of Bradman should be hung, drawn and quartered and barred from ever speaking about cricket again.
We don't have the talent countries like Australia, South Africa, India or even England have, but it's a tribute to how hard those players work that we even come close to winning games let alone series. And if you feel we over-rate our players then you can go and get ******, it's our role as fans of the NZ cricket team to rate them when ****-wits like yourself come out of the shadows to run down their chances and ability based on nothing.

if india doesnt win then i will be happy if new zealand can pull it off.
And I'm not the one who as soon as any NZer comes along with the slightest bit of potential they're immediately proclaimed as the next big international star. It happens with guys like Taylor and it has happened in the past with guys like McMillan.
I'm sure Ross Taylor would rather be touted as the next Martin Crowe than Bradman.
I don't know if he's been touted as such in NZ?
I haven't heard anything like that from commentators such as Ian Smith, Mark Richardson, Crowe himself etc.
All-Time Test XI:
Gavaskar, Boycott, Tendulkar, G.Pollock, V.Richards, Sobers, Gilchrist (wk), Warne (c), Waqar/Wasim, Lillee, Ambrose.
for me ross taylor is good enough batsman
the speciality he has, is that he can hit across the line, which is thought to be bad, but in twenty20 you can't win games without being able to hit across the line
maybe some are jealous of him cuz their players can't hit across the line, & they play twenty20 as test match cricket & try to be Bradman
Whereas Brandon Mcullam, can't compare him with Gilchrist, but Brandon has his own class, good enough wicket keeper (far better than our wicket keeper) & good enough batsman
if he can score some runs at the top of the order
newzealand 'll win most of the games they play in twenty20
