Who was the better batsman- Gavaskar or Richards

I just want to know all your opinion as to who the better batsman was- Sunny Gavaskar or Viv Richards. I liked both of them, but my opinion is that Viv was better against pace while Sunny was better against spin.

Well, I would rate Gavskar higher simply because he was dependable. His centuries speak that he had saved Inida on a number of occasions from defeats. In the Bombay test of 1977 against MCC (England), he scored a superb century paving the way for India to put a lot of pressure on the English batsmen. India almost won that test. Thanks also to a superb bowling spell by Karsan Ghavri.
