    Haha ignoring what I posted now??

    Let me recap what you said.

    1. Laxman is a better BMT or TNT or whatever than Sachin.
    2. Sachin is not a BMT because he averages only 36 in 4th innings.
    3. 4th innings performances are the only measures of how good a BMT a batsman is.

    Then I showed how equally good/bad Laxman has been in the 4th innings.

    Any counterpoints?

    If someone goes on posting Steven Smith is a better player under pressure than Ponting in the match threads, with nothing to backit up wouldn't it be trolling?

    Am all eyes and ears for a solid debate. it is not as if I have not conceded at all in any argument.
    Sonny, I presented the facts of SRT's 4 innings average. I pointed out that the Wisden article (old as it maybe) didn't rate any of his knocks. I asked for examples of match innings knocks by SRT. By my count 2 have been listed.

    Because we felt you were doing it on purpose to get a reaction out of the English posters.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Make a separate thread for this and you can argue a lot and have loads of fun. Don't spoil this thread though.

    Yet you said Laxman is a better player under pressure. And apparently Laxman's 4th innings efforts don't back that up mate.

    Ok will stop here as we are diverting the thread.

    That is the first time in ages SL have lost after winning the toss at home...in fact,they won all 3 tosses.Ind will be very happy with a drawn series considering they had 4 first choice players missing this test.

    Sir Alex will probably name his first son Sachin Ramesh, so you're not going to like the answer he'll give.
