    What better than Wood scoring a century against a rampaging Marshall and Ambrose on the best pitch for fast bowlers, I think Woods innings would have to be much better.
    I disagree.
    Wood's innings was not chanceless, Lara's was. Woods innings wasnt in the pressure-cooker of the 2nd innings with the FW trophy on the line, Lara's was.
    Woods didnt have to guide the tail like lara had to.

    I notice you are silent now about Lara being McGrath's bunny....

    As per pitches go, Sabina Park and Bridgetown are almost the same as perth (until the bridgetown pitch was relaid 2 years ago) in terms of bounce and carry.

    Lara is as much McGrath's bunny as McGrath is his bitch.
    Thats the truth of the matter really.
    Considering the number of times he's played McGrath and ther record against AUS while doing so, its a stalemate at the very least.
    Even McGrath himself said so.

    Hell Ponting is a bigger bunny of Harbhajan than Lara is of McGrath...far bigger.

    Of course you disagree because McGrath is a much better bowler than Marshall and Ambrose.

    you have a comprehension problem.
    I've outlined the reasons why Lara's innings is superior despite Wood facing a superior attack.
    As per McGrath being better than Marshall and Ambrose, your head is too thick...

    You do seem to have comprehension problems. You repeatedly bollox up while trying to understand a concept and keep harping on the same thing when its been addressed.

    This is what I mean C_C, All three of these batsmen are not even in the same league as Greg Chappel who managed to average over 50 against the WI when they had their best bowling attack.

    Greg was great but not in Richards-tendy-lara class.
    He wasnt as fluent and he averaged 50 against WI because he averaged 48.5 and 117 when WI had a very weak bowling lineup ( it was after the 1975 tour that WI started employing the four prong) - Andy Roberts, Lance Gibbs and Michael Holding were the only bowlers of class on that tour and it was Holding's debut series and Gibbs's last series with him a shadow of his former self.

    The 73 attack was even thinner.

    After WI resorted to the four-prong, Greg Chappell bombed...averaging less than 30 in his next 12 innings against them.


    PAKMAN- Saeed Would be mentioned had it not been for his reckless batting against the better bowling lineups

    Richards only averaged 44 against Australia and less against NZ and even less again against Pak, But he did extremely well against the English pace attack.

    Yes but he did better against Lillee-Thommo(closest AUS attack to the fourprong) than Chappell did against the four prong.

    Richards, lara and tendulkar are greater than Greg Chappell IMO.

    But why are ya turning this into a richards vs Chappell issue ? this is about LEFT HANDERS XI greg Chappell does NOT qualify.

    Graham Wood was a major disappointment over his test career and does not warrant dicussion on this thread.

    Border had a series in the West Indies against the four-prong that rivals any played against the WI in this era. That, combined with his overall record, should guarantee him selection in this side plus serious consideration for an all-time X1. He is as responsible as anyone for the dominant position Australian cricket finds itself in today.

    BTW, and off topic as pointed out earlier, Greg Chappell was a fabulous player who was condidered the equal of Richards during their over-lapping careers.
