    Sunil Gavaskar & Sachin Tendulkar an analysis

    I could see some interesting exchanges happening in another thread ( totally irrelavant to that thread ) on Sachin & Gavaskar.

    Hey guys, both are legends in their own respect

    The achievements of both are incomparable with anyone

    However I thought a detailed analysis of the 2 great jewels of Indian cricket will throw more light on who is the better of the 2.

    I wish some constructive exchanges happen & not the routine dishoom dishoom variety

    Looking forward to some healthy discussion / debate on this

    For both of your questions, my answer is certainly a big 'NO'.

    He is definitely not a man of crisis. When it comes to crisis, in my memory, no one is nearer to the legend KAPIL DEV.

    For your second question, in the current generation of players, Rahul Dravid is the only person can face the likes of Holding, Marshal, Roberts, Lilee, Thomson.

    But definitely, Sachin can face the likes of Chatfield, Bruce Reid, Michael Witney, Derek Pringle, Winston Benjamin, Labrooy, Ravi Ratnayake and few other good bowlers but not the great bowlers that you have mentioned.

    Rest of the Present Indian cricket team cannot survive even the second line good bowlers that I have mentioned above.

    Had Gavaskar played today, I think most probably he will be dismissed after every 10 or 15 tests and I think there won't be any different in runscoring speed.

    Geoffrey Boycott will be dismissed after every 25 tests and run scroing speed will remain same.

    He will have yet another oppurtunity today (5th day of 2nd test). Hopefully India could atleast draw this one, if not winning!!!

    Today once again, he proved me right that he is not a man of crisis. Very good batsmen but not a man of crisis.

    Always the Man of crisis for India is the one and only great legend Kapil Dev.

    But they never had fair success against all of them. For eg. Lara miserably failed against Wasim Akram, Waqar in Tests. I think he fared better against Donald, Mcgrath (even after 14 dismissals I think), Shaun Pollock.

    Tendulkar too failed miserably against Glenn Mcgrath, Shaun Pollock, Donald in Tests. But he fared better against Wasim and Waqar in Asian Continent pitches. Particularly in tests, he never had an opportunity to face them outside subcontinent pitches.

    So IMHO, the bowlers like Holding, marshal, Roberts, Lilee, Thomson certainly have an edge over BCL/SRT.
