    I agree - England may have won that match if not for Sangakkara's ton. However, that was not in contention. Sri Lanka had no chance of winning or leveling that series when Sangakkara came out to bat (hence why I added the bit in brackets in the post you quoted). The series was England's before his innings even started so it really wasn't any different from a dead rubber innings. That was my point.

    lol you people are so hung up on statistics which are virtually impossible to put into proper context. Lara for me was the more talented and better player, especially when he was focused on the job. Lara had a greater range of shots, was more imposing and dominant when he got set and was far more attractive and entertaining to watch. Tendulkar was a model of consistency and longevity but Lara takes it for me as the best batsmen of the generation in question.

    Yeah, but Tendulkar managed to be the batsman of two generations - 1997-2003 and 2008-11. Taste them apples.

    What apples? Are you hungry? Lara at his peak > Tendulkar at his peak. A focused Lara > Tendulkar in form.

    I agree with the peak argument but if Lara was not focused most of the time, that should count against him.

    Do you consider Waqar Younis as the best pace bowler of last 30 years?

    If not, then you don't deserve to eat an apple.

    - Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)
