Cricket, Lovely Cricket
No one has denied the same. You seem to be in denial of the points I mentioned regarding India playing fewer tests though when you state -marc71178 said:Right, so that will explain how since 2004, Tendulkar has played 19 Tests compared to 21 from Lara - clearly those 2 Tests are the only reason that Lara has pulled almost 1000 runs clear?
Same length of time? Tendulkar has played more years but India has playedesser number of tests compared to Windies in the period as I stated.Marc said:Not so long ago they were neck and neck, but only one of them is continuing to play the same way we know - they've both been playing Internationals for about the same length of time, so age is less relevant IMO. 32 he may be, but playing for 16 years at the highest level is far more relevant.
That is the main factor. I repear - Imagine how many runs Tendulkar would have scored in tests had he been playing for Australia all these years.
