    Was that an insult, a compliment, or a gentle poke in the ribs?

    Then neither are England. Considering Bangladesh have actually come close to winning one out of two recent tests against Australia, as opposed to getting hammered in all five.

    Blinding logic. I commend thee. Enjoy your stay. Peanuts?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

    Seriously, if everyone is in no doubt this is but one of 10-plus reincarnations, why has this account not been banned already?

    EDIT: I refer thee to...

    By some kind of similar logic I guess we should grant Somerset one-day status then?

    In the world? Probably at least 10 or so batsmen. In India there's probably only Dravid, though obviously Laxman and so on haven't been back in the team long enough to judge yet.

    He clearly meant in India, and I think that's the major point. If Sachin only averages say 42- 45 for another 2-3 years, he may not be the force he used to be but he's still good enough to be in India's top 6 test batsman.

    Yep, no argument there. Something like Steve Waugh after 2001 or so. If he drops below 40 for an extended period, that's when his place should come under question.

    At the moment there are atleast 50(if not more) test batsmen in the world that are batting better than him.

    If your are talking about only Indian batsmen then how about Ganguly, Jaffer, Laxman, Kaif, Dravid, Pathan, Dhoni, Yuvraj and even Sehwag.
