    e.g. wc 2003 he made a handful of runs when pakistan were in need. tendulkar man of the series.
    Good point - however Inzy's record in matches won is only 2nd best to Bradman (He averages something like 80 in the matches Pakistan has won), and 18 out of his 25 hundreds have come in wins.

    I'm not sure of your definition of tall, Wasim Akram is 6'3''

    Perhaps then you could say he only plays well when there is reduced pressure, whereas tendulkar is known to be the only performing player for india, hence still fights his cause in a potentially losing situation.

    Considering how long Inzy has been carrying the Pakistani batting, I think that would be a tad unfair, and especially in the last 12 months or so when he has come in and almost singlehandedly won matches (3rd Test vs India, 2nd Test vs WI both last year).

    Having said that, Tendulkar is a fine fine player and nothing should be taken away from him.

    In all fairness, you'd have to say that over the years Pakistanis bowling has been better than India's and thats why Pakistan have won more matches...

    I think thats a fair assumption, yes...I would like to compare the records of the two against other major test playing countries - aus/nz/sa/eng/wi before passing judgement though, since sub-continent matches always tend to be a tad unrepresentitive of the true cricketing quality...

    I think Tendulkar's record in Australia is better because of the 2003 series when McGrath and Warne were not playing...and both of them have an ordinary record in SA (mid 30s). Interestingly, Tendulkar's average against Pakistan (when the two Ws were playing) was also quite average compared to his overall record.

    He's done brilliantly but it'll be a contrast of styles against Hewitt who'll be harder to break down.

    He needs to control his anger more though.

    I love watching short track! Of course, part of the fun of it is that things can change so quickly because people can pass or wipeout, which can change the results in the final seconds.

    Well I don't think I'll be running the 10k anytime soon.

    Managed to entirely f**k up the ligaments in my ankle, can barely walk at the moment, let alone jog or run.

    Am feeling majorly down about having to strap up my ankle and hobble around on crutches, I've not done anything active for a week and a half now and it is P*****G me right off. I hate it - I can literally feel the fat starting to creep up on me.

    Any advice on how I can make this damn thing heal up faster? lol. D'ya think that swimming would be ok with a busted ankle? or cycling?

    you could say the same thing about pele - one of the dirtiest players in his time (although that was because he was clearly the best player and everyone else tried to take him out rather than tackle him...)

    True. No idea who'd be the 10 most feared people in football today...probably Michael Essien will be in there because he'll try and break your leg. He needs to change, he's not playing for Wimbledon '93.

    Apparently Alan Shearer is a pretty dirty player though I don't really notice it.
