    Matty Hayden v SUnil Gavaskar - better test opener ?

    Was actually debating with a mate from Queensland about this the other day....
    IMO, Gavaskar's the better player.....looking at Hayden's record its quite obvious he was merely good away from the higher bouncing Australian wickets whereas Gavaskar had a similar record home and away ..

    What do you guys reckon ?

    Would take Hayden because he's an Australian, IMO.
