Hi Mylotters, Who do you think is the better batsman, Brian Lara or Sachin Tendulkar.

As a Sri Lankan, I would be prejudiced to say Sanath Jayasuriya is better than both Lara and Tendulkar but I consider them both as great batsmen in the same league. But you'd be surprised to know that I consider Ganguli as the most stylish and correct batsman I've seen in a long while. I must mention though that I have been out of touch with the cricket scenario since I came to USA.

Brian Lara and Sachin Tendulkar have obviously dominated the batting in both forms of the cricket. Although Lara and Sachin are equally talented, I think in terms of technique, Tendulkar is slightly better than Brian Lara. No doubt Lara and Sachin both have played in the same era and have unique capability, but in technicality Tendulkar is a bit better which Lara himself admitted it and other great cricket players and viewers have recognized.

Mr.McMahon greetings to you Sir, I certainly appreciate your comments about both batsmen and i respect them both, i also respect you as well, but statistics usually tell the truth,agree? Brian Lara is the world record holder in test matches. I do not want to mention his other achievements but i know that it took some ability and technique to do that.Lara broke Sir Garry Sobers' record of over 36 odd years,Matt Hayden then broke Lara's and Lara like the man he is broke Hayden's to remain the world record holder.What a career!I think Lara was being modest in saying that Tendulkar was the better batsman. Fifty years from now cricket fans will have to follow the stats because they would not have been privileged to see them bat. You know the saying Mr.McMahon people are interested in results. I thank you, it was nice talking to you,resect. Researcher.

Sachin Tendulkar is better than Lara in many ways. Lara dominates Tendulkar on playing long innings. But Tendulkar plays much better cricket. His technique is awesome. If anybody says me to choose the best batsman from Srilanka, I will definitely go for Arvinda Desilva.
