    20 years back, on this day - Tendulkar outwits Warne

    I am not " making up anything". I said objective qualitative measure. And in that post also mentioned what the objective criteria are. How many years has he dominated ICC batsmen rankings in his 24/25 years career ? What is the greatest performance rating that he has scaled for ODIS and tests ? These are " objective criteria". For someone some elevated so high by an irrational fanbase, he falls seriously short on most objective criteria, when he should be crushing it.

    Did anybody seek your validation ? Are you some authority on cricketing analysis ? You are a just another biased fan boy, a nobody. Ofcourse, you would get pinched at the mention of " finish of matches" , especially chases because your god/hero has seldom done that in tough matches although he has played nearly 800 games for India. In a career of over 25 years, how many matches has he seen the team through in a tough dog fight ? Can already think of dozens of matches that Kohli has seen us through batting at #3, Laxman was similarly a clutch player in close chases in test matches,batting with the tail..etc. Yuvraj and Dhoni similarly have seen India through so many tight chases. QUite pathetic of your hero. Regarding 24 years..etc..Typical of a Sachin fan, quantity over quality. Yes, its not Ponting's fault. He plays for Australia, where the team and country is always way above the individual, the selectors have the power to drop any non performer, unlike in India where with a mafia like Sachin , the selectors fear losing their jobs , and he kept playing shamelessly after the 2011 WC to reach his 100 100th, averaging in 20's in his last 15 test matches and a disgracefully slow and selfish 100 that saw us knocked out of the Asia Cup against a lowly Bangladesh. http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8532/scorecard/535797/bangladesh-vs-india-4th-match-asia-cup-2011-12 Had he played for Australia, his he would have been axed a long time back. Its about quality and not quantity - Kohli does not have to play a single ODI more to have established that he is 2 times the player Sachin ever was . He can shove his extra number of runs , up where the sun dont shine.

    Greatest moments in cricket.

    Funniest and most entertaining moment in BD cricket. The entire team crying like wussies on the field. That 4 feet tall BD wicket keeper/ snake inconsolable.

    Every batsmen has flaws in records and games and Sachin is no different. If you are a reasonable cricket follower you would agree that Lara is way more destructive against spinners - the best of the best and Murali has said this on many occasions, just like Warne has praised Sachin mostly. But having followed the game - Lara is way to ruthless against spinners. Lara too has his share of short comings, he scores huge hundreds and then series of poor scores - more inconsistent. Lara struggles against raw sheer pace, have seen him struggle against Akhtar. But to his credit when he gets going he finishes off matches. It is your lot that indulges in selective cherry picking and intellectual dishonesty. You say Sachin has scored 20 % more runs than Ponting, but don't mention that he has played 32 more test matches, or 20 % more matches. You can keep your views but they don't stand up against any objective qualitative measure. Neither has Sachin ever dominated batsmen ranking for any reasonable period, nor did he achieve any peak comparable to his peers in batting rating points, nor did any of his knocks of over 200 test matches ( most capped player ) find their way in Wisden rankings. That says a lot. He is still a true Indian great, heaped many records due to his class and longetivity and was the backbone of out batting for 5-6 years and credit to him for that. But he does not stand out relative to his peers in terms of sheer quality.

    I am not blind like your lot. I am rational and fair. I don’t elevate someone by blind worship. I have never said that he is not a true great.. but so are many of his peers. He does not stand out as his irrational Bhakts want others to believe. Statistically and factually others are as great. Sangakkara was a god damn keeper, also captain and Ponting was a long time captain - huge responsibilities. Tendulkar just had to focus on his batting for most of his career. Yet he does not stand out

    Nobody is getting misguided by your bells and whistles . I hope your dad does not disagree with your views on Tendulkar else , you may call him a jahiil too, such is your extreme rabidness. Failures in multiple WC encounters finals, semis ..etc bear out undeniable facts. Your hero is not better off..over a much larger " sample size" of 32 test matches against 4 of the greatest fast bowlers in the last 25 years. What a remarkable fall of almost 17 points in average when pitted against the very best and average of 35/36 But..but I thought he was the greatest thing ever in batting since Bradman, or perhaps even greater no ? Such things should not happen to somebody who is better than his peers no ?

    Typical of the SRT pack of wild dogs fan brigade to keep using personal abuse when their hero is questioned - without any provocation - instead of agreeing to disagree. They would even abuse their family members if they had a difference of opinion over their overrated hero. Going by your dimwitted ( common symptom of your lot ) reasoning harbhajan must be a much greater bowler than Muralitharan because his best performances came against Monsters, beasts, machines alligators etc. etc Australia Sachin vs Australia with and without Mcgrath ...such a big drop in performances. Its not a coincidence. And nor is Sachin's exaggerated performance. He shat in the entire 2003 series in Australia when the pitches were spicy, and then in the final test match on a Sydney patta wicket where India scored some 700 plus runs, played a pathetic selfish notout knock to boost his numbers.

    Please tell me how this is better than Ponting or Sangakkara's purple patch, for significantly much lesser number of runs @6510 Its also so surprising that for a player touted so great and better than his peers, his numbers are at best comparable to the best of the era.. The bhakts have always known to be intellectually dishonest. Instead of plaining and fairly accepting that there were equally great players, they will defend him as if their livelihoods depend on showing him better. Kallis is more consistent because he ended his career with a greater average and had an equal to greater conversation rate to 100's and 50's. Nobody asked Tendulkar to keep playing and bring down his average by several points because he wanted to selfishly build his personal glory and build overall runs records that would be hard to break. Cant have it both ways. Tendulkar: 50 and above in every 4.83 innings 100 and above in every 6.45 innings Kallis: 50 and above in every 4.82 innings 100 and above in every 6.22 innings

    it is actually the pathetic attempt of your lot to elevate him above anything and everything when there have been equal and better performers - the sensible ones like us just put him at level pegging with the other best. When your blind beliefs are hammered with cold facts, then comes intangibles like " pressure " on him. When you play for your country at the international level - there is pressure. Period. Murali was much more to Lanka - yet he reveled and thrived under pressure. See how Kohli becomes a beast in pressure chases. Thats where the truely great standout. Only in a country like India do fans get orgasms over an Indian batsmen smashing a shitty Zimbabwean seamer. Talk about heights of silly hero worship.

    Dude, unlike you I don't live in a fictional world or believe in idol worship of just another very good consistent player. I talk facts without biased emotions. Below is the peak purple patch of tendulkar - unless you want to find a better one..good ahead and prove it. Attached is also Sangakkara and Ponting's peak. Their peaks have been as good at the very least and even better for more number of runs. You say I have made " random" statements - yet you cannot deny anyone of them with facts. Its just too hard for folks like you to accept that he is just another great player in a legion of great players - Folks like even fight with you family and spoil relations to defend this guy - who would not give a damn if you were to die tomorrow - this is what they call " idol worship "

    This is no ordinary filtration. McGrath is the greatest pace bowler in the last 20 years - he raises his game in big matches. Check out his record in knockouts and finals. And he inadvertently gets the top player of the opposition side out in big games - there may be exceptions but Sachin is not an exception. Sachins average against Australia in both ODIs and tests with and without McGrath - huge difference. it is also a fact that apart from Warne there is not a single great bowler on whom Tendulkar has been able to impose himself consistently. why is the talk never on how Sachin dominated Murali - the other great spinner of his era - because he never has. Lara has destroyed both Warne and Murali ( Murali in his own den ), with devastating consistent step out hits and HUGE tons in Lanka dominating Murali big time In a god damn 25 year old career over 450 ODIS all sachin Bhakts can remember his 3-4 memorable match winning knocks. Sharjah storm, olanga, and the 2003 WC against Pak. Keep salivating and orgasming on this all your lives. Sachin even at his very best in the 90s lacked the ruthless match winning ability and consistency of Kohli and ability to finish off games - Kohli has easily surpassed him many times over. as a test player it can be argued that sangakkara and Kallis have surpassed him in consistency all round the world with their averages and runs. Tendulkars greater number of runs is just because he stretched his career to an unprecendeted 200 test matches - rather than being a truely stand out quality Many players in the 2000s have had long purple patches where they have outdone Sachin’s best purple matches - namely Ponting, Kallis and Sangakkara in the 2000s. For someone so hyped - he has never stood out of the league. He is just one among the many greats of his era.
