    Icon14 Who is Better--- Sachin or Gangs???

    I am really sorry to have raised this rotten topic that is much debated back home in India.
    I would like to see how the international cricket buffs think of the two cricketers in ODIs only. (For the obvious reason that there is no comparison in test matches)
    Comments from all quarters are welcome

    Ganguly is not even in Indian team, while Sachin is an automatic selection.There seems to be huge difference b/w the two, Sachin is better for sure.

    To become a GANGU supporter you need not become a Sachin Basher

    and thats why this fair platform to express their views without any need to become a sachin basher.
    Do i sound biased?

    Tendulkar by far. Probably in the top 3 best ODI batsmen of all time.

    I doubt he actually thought it out, but I'd be tempted to say Bevan and Richards. And anyway, it's gotta be Tendulkar.

    I would have Viv Richards at number 1. Probably Tendulkar second. Not too sure who I would have third. Possibly Bevan or Lara.

    Viv and Bevan. Those 3 are in my mind undoubtedly the 3 best ODI batsmen ever.

    Anyway, Ganguly is an all time great ODI batsman, but Sachin is one of the best ever. Its not really an argument. Its just the way it is.

    My favourite opening partnership ever though.

    Well, Sachin as a captain was totally inferior

    I think thats a bit unfair. I dont think he got a fair shot, and the selectors really worked against him.

    BUT, I agree with you. Ganguly was the right choice for captain at the time. He really moved indian cricket forward, and he did a great job.

    In any case, for best ODI batsman:

    1) Viv
    2) Tendulkar
    3) Bevan


    Ganguly is one of the all timers, but Tendulkar/Viv/Bevan are in their own category.

    Sachin Tendulkar, as a batsman, was able to put the fear of God in the bowlers. I watched Gauguly in his prime and as good a batsman he obviously was, there really is no comparison.

    Tendulkar hands down as a batsman, Tendulkar in any ODI team is irreplaceable imo, Ganguly, especially over the past two years, has been a walking wkt in ODIs and ppl who consider him to be better just need to watch his performance in his last ODI (in the tri-nations final ) particularly against Shane Bond, he was practically scared of Bond, so the comparision is absolutely moot. Having said that overall Ganguly as captain was better hands down.
