    Who is a better cricketer: Sachin Tendulkar or M.S. Dhoni?

    Hey Guys,

    Check out this new blog in which I have compared the performance of MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar. Would love to hear comments from everyone especially from all Sachin fans

    Having said that, I have deep admiration for both the cricketers. So let us start a healthy debate and have some fun with the topic.

    Tendulkar in Test and T20, easily

    Dhoni in ODI, just

    It's close. I guess Sachin seems better given Dhoni's current slump.

    Both good players but have to go with Sachin always scored a lot of runs in all formats, Dhoni is good as well without his leadership India wouldn’t of achieved as much as they did especially in the shorter formats, his the type of player you want in your team due to his leadership and calmness, his helped Kohli a lot ever since he bacame captain and will keep helping India till the World Cup

    So both good players in different aspects

    Apples and Oranges, Sachin kept Indian team competitive at a time when the rest of the team was at minnow level. Dhoni got India a world cup. That said, Dhoni also got India a 0-8 in Eng/Aus, so Sachin for me.

    (I know I am grossly oversimplifying, but going into the details is pointless, you can give neat arguments for whoever you wish.)

    Tendy was such an awful captain. One of the worst ever. Dhoni's leadership gets underrated.
    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

    Question says "is" so the answer is clearly Dhoni as Tendulkar is retired.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    We found the replacement of Sachin as batsman in Virat but Dhoni can't be replaced. Though Virat is a captain but he is playing with the team which Dhoni created.

    A number of discussions on CW in recent times concerning relative merits of players place a large emphasis on shorter formats compared to similar discussions from a few years ago. I don’t imagine this would even be a close comparison if it was asked a few years back when the consensus was more towards performance in tests being weighted a lot higher than other formats.
