Both by style and technique I will pick Lara anyday. Not that Sachin and Ponting are not good batsmen, but Lara is the one whom I saw single handedly guide West Indies to victory in the fourth innings in what is the world record chase of four hundred runs. Then he broke the record of Sobers of three sixty five runs by scoring three seventy five, then again he became the only batsmen at Test level to score four hundred runs. He also scored five hundred runs at the county level.
Lara was a great batsmen in a weak team. I remember he scored a world record of more than five hundred runs in a three test series in Sri Lanka and played Muralitharan brilliantly and the West Indies lost the series three-nil.

Ponting has the most wins as a test captain and longest steak of winning 21 tests or something ! Great Bat and slip fielder also he was !!

Lara has the most no of runs in an innings of a test(Purely selfish against England) but poor winning record as a cpatain and team:-))

Sachin could not score a triple hundred which will remain a blot in his longest ever test career and poor Captaincy record- Sachin has Mere Numbers as world record stats but his great knocks were lesser in wins of Indian team !!

So for the sake of Patriotism I salute Sachin but he ranks third in my view !!!

Sachin Tendulkar, no doubt about that because he had to face the fastest bowlers almost from all countries, he had also to put up with the BAD UMPIRING DECISIONS most of the times too
