Reckon he's massively underrated - I don't think I have ever seen a better subcontnental batsman when the chips were down.
Strong record in both Australia and Southe Africa - the two best teams of his generation.
All four of India's test wins this decade in Aus and RSA featured major VVS contributions.
Miandad by contrast is a bit overrated - never did that well against the West Indies the best team of his generation and he only did well against Oz in Pakistan.
he owned windies during the memorable 88 tour.
