    Poll - Bradman v Tendulkar

    No, not that I think it's even close as Tendulkar isn't even the gleam in Bradman's shoe IMO...but I want to know who stands where so we can see who still lives on planet Earth.

    Bradman v Tendulkar, who is the better batsman?

    Tendulkar by a hundred million miles. Bradman is dead and after rigor mortis set in I can't see him even being slightly competitive.

    You use the word "is" and therein lies the problem.

    It's almost impossible to compare a player of today with a player none of us have ever seen. It's also impossible to compare the game of Bradman's era to the game in Tendulkar's. I honestly think if Tendulkar was chucked in a time machine as he is right now and made to play in Bradman's era there is a good chance he could be a statistical anamoly akin to Bradman, and if the reverse happened I could see Bradman not standing out to the same extent if at all. However that isn't really how it works, your only as good as the time you played in.

    Is Tendulkar of the current era better than Bradman in Bradman's day? Maybe, but we have honestly no way of comparing.

    That said if Tendulkar was born in Bradman's time I'd say with a great deal of certainity he would have not had the same levels of success as the Don.

    I can't believe you actually came up with this poll.

    FTR I certainly think that Tendulkar is a better ODI batsman than Bradman

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    'Is', 'was', whatever. However you think it about or whatever you consider when you compare players regularly; take that into consideration and pick the better batsman from Tendulkar or Bradman. Not looking to start a fight or anything like that. I simply want to know who entertains the thought that Tendulkar is better than Bradman. If people want to discuss, feel free to do so. But please keep it clean and do not troll. Having said that, I am more interested in you voting in this poll than anything else.
