Ahh so you're "Leemann" off youtube. Been thoroughly enjoying your uploads mate, can't thank you enough. Particularly enjoyed the Ponting double vs Pakistan, and the quality was exceptional!
Nice to see that Andy Bichel 7/20 in good quality. Thanks Lee.
Trying hard to think of some really good bowling performances over the past few years to request but can't think of any. Any ideas guys?
Oh and Bevan v New Zealand in 2002 anyone? Not on youtube as far as I can tell.
I would agree that the Indian media, like A FEW Indian fans, tend to go overboard with their praise for Sachin Tendulkar at times, but they are also among the most unforgiving when he is not doing well. You have to be here to truly appreciate the immense pressure he is under. In fact, the same holds true for a lot of other Indian players albeit to a lesser extent.
Yes, there were a few raised eyebrows when none of Sachin Tendulkar's knocks made the top hundred Wisden list, but equally, there weren't too many "hail Tendulkar" articles or programmes by the Indian media when he, if memory serves me right, was voted the second best batsman after Sir Donald Bradman by the same Wisden in 2002-2003.
The insinuation that visiting players praise Sachin Tendulkar only when pushed by the Indian media is laughable. I will happily concede that I have seen it happen a couple of times, but to suggest that is always the case is just wrong.
For the record, I have always rated Brian Lara at his best as a slightly better test batsman than Sachin Tendulkar, but posts such as this one are just as bad, if not worse, than the comments on youtube that you seem to have a problem with. Surely it is not a crime to make requests for knocks of your favourite player!
Just my two cents

Robelinda - Do you have VVS Laxman's 167 at Sydney ?
Someone asked for this Damien Martyn knock in the 2003 world cup final. Pretty short, he only scored 8 boundaries.

Here's one of my all time favourite innings, Kim Hughes 213 vs India, Adelaide 1980/81. One of the greatest underachievers in cricket, Kim would be in my top 5 batsmen who i'd want to watch in full flight, he was glorious, absolutely glorious. Even more stylish than Greg Chappell for me. Ponting has said he wanted to be Kim Hughes when he was younger, but he never copied that spanking cover drive on one knee!
