Still mere opinions not facts.
Tendulkar beats them both whether its test or ODIsOriginally Posted by Sanz
Agree with Tests but is Tendulkar really a better ODI player than Richards?Originally Posted by ReallyCrazy

RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1990-2006
RIP Craig Walsh (AKA "Craig"), 1985-2012
IMO he is. He has scored over 13000 runs in ODIs. He has 37 centuries and 66 fifties. I think thats enough to tell me that he is better.Originally Posted by a massive zebra
if only it was as straight forward as that..Richards played less ODI's,and the game was different back then as well.Originally Posted by ReallyCrazy
Theere is no doubt that Tendulkar must be considered the most successful ODI player of all time, although I ceratinly would not push Richards out of my team, he played THE best ODI innings I have ever seen (189* in 1984 vs England).
However,I dont think there has ever been anyone who has understood how to bat in ODI more than Bevan
rave down, hit the ground
I think it's the other way round! Tendulkar is an awesome ODI player, one of the very best. It's tests that he still has that little way to go IMO.Originally Posted by a massive zebra
You talking to IR?
I think the 143 and 132 against AUS, the 186* vs NZ and the 98 vs PAK will be on par if not better than Viv's 189*. Bevan was a great finisher. I don't think he was that good in building long innings and big hundreds.Originally Posted by Swervy
He didn't have the chance to build big innings batting at 6. What he did, he did superbly.Originally Posted by chicane
hmm I would agree that he is going through a bad period in tests right now He did score 241* and 194* recently but he was far from his best. They were not free flowing innings that he is capable of. They were more determined knocks.Originally Posted by chicane
But i remember that 2 years ago, he was avearging like 59.6 or something like that. Since then, he has tapered off but I think he will be back better than ever.
A lot of ppl on this forum rate Lara higher than Tendulkar in tests. I don't think these ppl would have done that 2 years ago when Sachin was the epitome of consistency and Lara was getting out on very low scores (his average dipped below 50).
He did it superbly no doubt. I agree with Swervy that he is probably the best player who understood how to play the game.Originally Posted by a massive zebra
I just wish Australia tried him at number 4. I'm sure he would have been a big success. He would have achieved more than Martyn did. There was a time when they did try him at number 4 and he did brilliantly.
The Sydney test 1st Innings was only enjoyable for VVS and the fact that the aussies were getting caned. Sachin just cut out his best strokes. In tests, he needs to get a big triple (or mebbe 400 ) or two to complete his superb career.Originally Posted by ReallyCrazy

Pity you haven't seen them.Originally Posted by Swervy
There are a few different reasons I have heard for that slow-mo from GavaskarOriginally Posted by Neil Pickup
1) He was Protesting against ODI (BBC)
2) Team management screwed up --->Indian mysticism defies explanation
I think he had a problem with the captain too.. not sure.Originally Posted by Sehwag309
