    Good on him but I dont think he will do it.

    He is aggresive but not that aggresive his scoring rate is usualy between 40 - 65 he would probably need to push that toward's 75-80 to get there and still have enough time to win the match.

    Yes, he is not the fast scoring type like, Hayden, Ganguly and co, but he can attack well.

    Ya, I agree. But 1 thing is for sure, if he does make 400..it will only be against Australia

    Yes, I don't think he would have the guts to get in against the Zims or someone. It is to easy.

    highly unlikely that he'll score 400 and yet put the team in with a chance of winning especially considering that he bats at 6....

    VVS is a highly overrated batsman. He gives too many chances early in his innings, a very poor runner between the wickets, doesn't have the power and strength in his batting.

    My prediction is 281 will remain his highest score in Test Cricket. He may be able to score couple of 200s but a 400 ?? I say never.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Who's to say Sanz, certainly not you. He doesn't need to run hard between the wickets, when he is the most elegant batsman in the world, as all his beautifully stylish strokes always are timed perfectly to the boundary.



    On a serious note, he has a lot of stamina. As those 10 Ranji 100's in 10 games will prove with a highest score of 353 will prove.

    In International games, 3 ODI centuries in One Week during the VB Series in Australia.

    Massively Overrated?

    MB, I have as much right to have my opinion as you. If you think he is the greatest batsmen after Bradman then good for you keep living in your dream world.

    Just because Laxman can score runs in fours doesn't mean he does not need to improve his running. He along with Sourav are worst runners in our team. Laxman not only needs to improve his running but also his fielding and catching. If he doesn't then he should be ready to be dropped from ODIs.Remember World Cup he where he was dropped in favor of Dinesh Mongia ? Remember Dravid was dropped once too for his slow batting.

    As for his 3 ODI centuries in one week, well yeah it really improved his average from 28 to 30+ but take a look at his career and strike rate and compare it to other Indian and Austalian Batsmen and you will know what I am talking about.

    Yeah, I know what your talking about Sanz. But this is test cricket we're talking about here, which fits Laxman perfectly.

    He can go better than 281 in Test Cricket, so why is ODI cricket being brought into the equation. I think he's a fine player, but for you to show that I think he's better than Bradman is pretty ridiculous.
