And besides if he scores more then 10 runs, it makes me question HTF did he do that, and whether or not the bowlers were being nice, or just dire. And if he scores runs, then it makes me feel as though I could do it as well.
Nothing compares to SRT (
), but Martin is more entertaining for mine.
How can you even compare both of them? When comparing great players like this, subjective analysis is best. Both are the masters of their style of batting, Chris Martin is infinitely more fun to watch batting than Viv Richards while Sachin is a league ahead of his contemparies,we should consider ourselves blessed that we can admire two such masters in the same era and move on. Chris Martin has never gotten out once has crossed 10 runs which shows whaddaplya he is! Tedulkar however has gotten out in similar situations over 400 times. Chris Martin also has never been dismissed in a WC Final while that cheapstake SRT has been dismissed for 4 runs.
