that's why it is quite silly to use 3 conveniently chosen pace bowlers to come up with conclusions of who was better against pace. or to count injury time or othe fact that one had better batsmen while the other had better bowlers or that one debuted too early, (dis)counting longevity etc.
they are both superb. and comfortably ahead of the rest that i have watched. with tendulkar being that marginal amount ahead.
