Lara did well against Mcgrath and co but two other great attacks - Donald and Pakistanis WWs - of his time kept him quiet. In Australia, he blew hot and cold. He wasn't very successful against India either.
I keep hearing that he won many matches from improbable positions but can't remember many other than the 153. Just curious.
His innings definitely rescued his side from the depths plenty of times but in terms of the number of single-handed match-winning efforts go, Laxman definitely ahead of him. Obviously doesn't make him a better batsman than him, but there you go

I rate Hutton so highly that I can't even place Dravid in the same tier as him. I would say that Hutton is the only relatively slow batsman that I rate so highly, but I belive that he was just amazing.
Cause Slifer said so.........!!!!
