    The technically most sound batsman

    who would u say is the most technically sound batsman in International Cricket today. I would say its Rahul Dravid and Yousaf Youhana.

    Good call there. Those two are probably the best at technique. Jayawardene's not bad either though. Tendulkar is an obvious mention.

    Often enough though the most defensive batsmen get labelled as the most technically correct. I think the two need to bee differentiated. Many good stroke players are technically good as well.

    What about Ramnaresh Sarwan ??? He certainly looks good when he has his eye in.

    Sarwan is pretty correct as is Ganga....but he's not in the team right now. If he were, he would have to be the most technically correct.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Matthew Hayden. There's an example of a guys who's attacking and has a decent technique. If any of you guys can find a chink in the armour of him, I'd be surprised.

    Rahul Dravid is suspect to deliveries outside off-stump as evidenced by his dimissals in AUstralia last time he was here and in the 1999 WC against Australia.

    Yousef Youhanna is right up there, though. Tends to cover his off-stump pretty well and has a decent array of shots.

    Sachin is right up there too. Him and Hayden seem to have few patterns to their dismissals, though against deliveries swinging away and bouncing, he's been out a few times. Having said that, most of them no-one else would have even touched.

    Damien Martyn has a very good technique. He is a very good player and can play all the shots in the book.
    Id say he is the best judge of leaving the ball in world cricket.

    I would agree with broncoman on Damian Martyn I think In Deffence he is the best.

    I cant ever remember Martyn being Cought behind or in the slips deffending he does when attacking somtimes but hes as solid as a rock in deffence.
