    Viv Richards: I'd pick Sachin over Lara

    Relatively speaking, Lara was a dead rubber basher. In quite a few series, he would go on a holiday when the series was alive but cash in big time in a relatively meaningless dead rubber bumping up his stats for that series. This reflects in his overall record too where his average crashes to 48 if we only count live Tests. His 400* is a prime example of his dead rubber prowess. May be that is why in such a log career, he has only 5 match-winning hundreds against non-minnows in live Tests .

    Not in Tests if he wants to be taken seriously .

    You're the one to talk after picking Dhoni ahead of Gilly in an All Time Ind/Aus XI .

    Viv Richards: I'd pick Sachin over Lara

    In an all time XI (that will be presumably up against other extremely strong sides), Hadlee is too high at 7 no matter how good the top 5 are. Plus one of your 5 ATG bowlers would get up under-bowled more often than not. With no restrictions on the number of overs a bowler can bowl, a 6th batsman is always more handy than a 5th bowler in Tests IMO. Sobers can anyway fill in as the 5th bowler.

    Not necessarily. Hadlee gives you everything that McGrath does with the ball + some runs with the bat.

    Seems a batsman short. Hadlee at 7 in an All Time XI is too high.

    Karnataka and Mumbai Lobby selections without performance

    As horrific as Rahul's form has been this year, his record as an opener against non-minnows is still pretty good. Having said that if he fails in this series, he deserves to be dropped (as long as it's not Dhawan or Vijay who end up replacing him!).

    The little Manjrekar in me

    I see where you are coming from but then again I doubt the Aussies gave a f**k when they won in India in 2004 with Tendulkar missing the first 2 Tests and rushed into the 3rd without any match practice. Might as well enjoy the rare win down under.

    Best year for INDIA in SENA ever

    Can't be the best year unless we win this series.

    Pujara, what a performance!

    Gillespie was in the team instead of Bracken though. Anyhoo while that was a weaker attack and a much more batting friendly wicket, Dravid was under massive scoreboard pressure with India at 85-4 chasing 556. 9 times out of 10, teams don't even draw from that position let alone come back to win the Test.
  12. Retarded captaincy. Can't even keep the no. 11 on strike.

    Please no Ashwin for the rest of this series

    Has the field placement been so bad that he can't buy a wicket on the 5th day? I don't think so.
