Q.

Bradman and Tendulkar played cricket under totally different circumstances and hence it is not possible to gauge who is greater. Will you agree or disagree with this statement. If so why?

Bradman played in a greater difficult circumstances than Sachin has to face today. What with all sorts of protectve gear covering almost the whole body!
Secondly Bradman played less than sixty test matches in all, and his record of 29 centuries comes from that and also his average of 99.9. In comparison today's record breakers have made done that playing for twenty years or more and much more than a hundred test matches ( not in fifty or so matches). Hence it is true that Bradman's record cannot be ever broken. This is said by all including Gavaskar, Lara, Sachin, Border, Waugh, Ponting etc etc.

Bradman was no doubt a greater batsman when it comes to test cricket but Sachin for me is the Master of one day cricket!!

Technology and fielding strategy were not existent and it was quite easy to make scores in yesteryears when cricket was just played without global recognition. Now making records is no joke indeed. Tendulkar's is laudable !

You are right. Bradman played only Test Cricket as far as international cricket is considered. While Tendulkar has played all three versions- Test Cricket, Limited overs one day cricket and T20 cricket. The bowlers, field conditions were all different. So let Bradman be the one and only Bradman and Tendulkar the one and only Tendulkar.

Tendulkar is a better batsman than Bradman ever was

Paul Moon doesn't pull any punches as he looks at the achievements of the great Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar (born 24 April 1973 in Mumbai) is a small man at 5ft 5in but he is a cricketing colossus. Wisden rated Sachin Tendulkar as the second greatest Test Cricket and ODI batsman of all time after the legendary Sir Don Bradman and Sir Viv Richards respectively. The list was later revised to make him best ODI player of all time. I disagree, he is the best ever batsman of all time.

I have the most deepest and sincerest respects for what The Don achieved but you cannot compare those undemanding runs scored against amateurs in the 30's and 40's to Sachin's, scored against the modern era fast bowlers and real spinners.

The Don scored most of his runs against bumbling, clumsy, inept, limited, unfit, sometimes ageing upper class twits with spe ...more
