    Lara was amazing but in Odi's he had two phases, from 1990 to 1998 he averaged around 47, which was amazing considering during that period he played in the top 3 slots in batting, but from about 1999 to 2007 he only averaged in his mid 30's as a one day batsmen, and because of this his career average ended just over 40.

    Dont like comparing openers to middle-order bats at the ebst of times. But i do believe when Lara did open in ODIs, he was quite fantastic - probably better Anwar.

    Yeah, Anwar's at a disadvantage because he was opening- and not just opening for any country, but Pakistan.

    Anwar at a disadvantage because he wasn't Lara. FFS, I'm a big Anwar fan but how can you compare the two? Different classes altogether.

    Agarkar has a hundred at Lords.

    If Lara had continued to opening he would have challenged Sachin spot as the best ever odi bat, still don't know why he stopped opening.

    I was of the belief that Lara stopped opening just to give some solidarity to the middle-order. A brilliant Lara half-century opening the batting was often followed by 5/60 loss in the middle/lower order.

    it was really bad decision, atleast when lara was up there many times they had a good start.
