    In my view, the man they're all chasing is Lara.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Im picking Andy Flower cause he has to carry the bulk of the Zimbabwe innings and for a guy to be averaging 50+ from such a lowly nation aswell as keeping thats very impressive in my opinion.

    Tendulkar is the best for concentration and getting on top of the best bowling attacks. Lara is the best for getting quickfire runs. Lara lacks consistency in his batting.

    Hayden, Martyn, Waugh brothers and Gilchrist are the best Aussies.

    If Tendulkar's concentration is so good, how come he doesn't get the really big scores that Lara gets?

    Also, why not name the Aussie top 7 and say they're Australia's best batsmen?

    At the moment, on form it would have to be Matthew Hayden.

    But I would put Lara and Tendulkar up there. Although Tendulkar scores more runs, I think Lara has played a lot more big innings when they have counted.
