I don't know whether I should like to see it or not - when Lara first came to prominence, I thought that here was that man, but of course he's not. Nowhere near.
Whereas Bradman did dominate the game, there were far fewer international players then, there was no facility for mass-marketing of the game, coaching tended to be a 'hands on' thing, all of which make me think that it is becoming less and less likely for any one player to dominate.
To be so far ahead of everyone else, it could prove to be the death of the game.
