Australia vs India Third Test: Online Live Score and Updates

http://techblogbiz.blogspot.com/2008/01/australia-vs-india-third-test-online.html

Cricket is a very popular game to nearly 2 billion people in the world. Cricket has now turned into a billion dollar sports industry. This beautiful game has produced some great batsmen over the years. I have made a list of the ten of the greatest batsmen in the world. Well, it is a very tough thing to do. For doing this, I had to leave so many other great crickets. Still, I think that this list will satisfy most of the readers.

Sir Don Bradman

Sir Don Bradman is a name which represents the passion and art of cricket. This Australian legendary master cricketer is undoubtedly the best in the history of cricket. He could take cricket to such a height where Bradman is set as a king ruling others in the cricket world. He symbolizes a model of a batsman in the cricketing point of view. It is worthless to add an adjective before his name as every attempt will be in veil. With an enormous average of 99.94 in test cricket he could score 6996 and if he could score just 4 runs in his last international innings his total runs would be 7000 and most importantly his average would be 100! However, he has been dismissed without scoring a single run in that innings which is one of the greatest and most talked issue in the world cricket. He has the then record of 29 centuries and he used to carry out those hundreds to a larger figure frequently. He could score a century in every three innings at an average. His is the first and one of the second batsmen who has two triple centuries. Sir Don is one of the five Cricketers of the Century according to Wisden. Analyzing a number of things statistician Charles Davis find out that Bradman is the Athletic figure who is followed by Pele, Ty Cobb, Jack Nicklaus, Michael Jordan and Bjonn Borg.

Brain Lara

Lara is considered to be one of greatest name in the history of cricket. This benevolent Caribbean cricketer holds the record of highest career run scorer in the test cricket with over 11000 runs. His batting average 52.05 in test cricket is also a loyal one. He is best known for his record braking long innings both in international and first class crocket. He is the highest individual run scorer in test cricket with his outstanding knock of unbeaten 400 against England. He was also the holder of this record before Mathew Hayden broke it. Then in 2004 he again grabbed his lost crown in the way of is smashing 400 runs. He became the first batsman to break the 400 margin in test cricket. “The prince” nicknamed this talented batsman also holds the record of highest individual score in first class cricket with his 501 not out against Durham. His one day international record is also very attractive. He is now on the verge of 10000 with an average of 41.37 in one day international cricket. He has 32 test centuries and 19 one day centuries in his career. After the golden age of West Indian cricket, he is the only man trying single-handedly to get back their old days. He is currently the captain of West Indies.

He is the highest run-scorer in one-day cricket and not so far away form being the highest run scorer in test cricket too. Sachin is the highest centurion in both Test and One-day cricket. It is surprising that Tendulker’s first cone-day international century at the 79th match. This talented player is compared with the all time greatest Batsman Sir Don Bradman who himself praised him and could remembered his own batting watching Sachin. He is the first cricketer to cross 10000 runs in one day cricket. He is also thehighest run scorer in the world cup history. Once he was the captain of Indian cricket team.

  2. I completely disagree with the top 10...how can you forget Rickey Ponting(who has produced most number of match winning innings)

    He is No : 2 in the world behind Bradman and sachin comes at No :4....not because he has produced most number of match winning innings but due to records(he is fantastic batsman!!!)

    Any blog without mentioning Rickey Ponting in top 10 is not worth...

  7. Sachin should be at first place along with Sir Don Bradman and there should not be second place, and one more thing is match win or lose depends on the play of 11 players not on a single player, compared to Ponting Sachin had more match winning innings, for Australia even if Ponting doesn't play well others will play well and lead to match win.See the average of Sachin in ODI's maintaining around 45 even he
    completed 400 ODI's and in tests maintaining 55.

  11. I think what ever mahesh said is absolutely true. There is no second thought for it. Ponting has to prove more to get a place in top ten batsmen.Cricket hasn't seen the best batsman after Bradman except SACHIN.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Brian Lara Deserves 2nd Spot as he is the real entertainer and all his test innings are came under pressure and under great circumstances while tendulkar one day record is great bcoz he opened innings for more than 300+ times and lara played his last 120 Odis at very low in the order. Compare Lara test record and sachins and Lara simply greatest.

    ReplyDelete
  13. People say Sachin Technically correct .. thats simply rubbish .. technically 100% correct player should be the greatest player of spin as well. And no one better player of spin than B.C.LARA. in the history of the game. By FAR, FAR and very FAR Lara is the greatest player of spin than sachin. Ask murali or warne or any spinner. Also Lara likes to DOMINATE bowlers all the time and no other player inc. sachin does that at all times.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sachin opened more one day matches 300+ times almost and if Lara would have opened innings 300+ times his record would be similar to sachin. Also Lara never concerntrated on ODIS. Compare EACH and EVERY test century of LARA and Sachin. No Comparison, LARA simply greatest. He carried a burden of rubbish team and all his Test Centuries came under very difficult circumstances. Sachin have 3 more hrds bcoz he scored over bangladesh and zim. Where as Lara never even consider playing against minnows.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes, i too agree Pavanlara's comment on Lara that B.C.Lara is a great player of Test Cricket, but not entire Cricket(he is a good player of cricket).But Sachin is a Great Player of Cricket. I think Cricket means not only Test Cricket, it includes Tests, onedays(Batting and bowling). Even though sachin opened 300+ matches the percentage of innings played by lara(289 0f 299) is almost same as that of sachin(397 of 497). Don't think lara doesn't got a chance to play in ODI's(he played 13086 balls in his entire innings where as sachin played 18669). I think Warne doesn't had sleep during sharjah cup with sachin's play agreed sachin is all time great.Sub continent pitches supports well for spin and that too sachin has great records in subcontinent.

  17. how can u say sachin as not a match winner!!!!!!! he is the real match winner for india. remind friends who disagree this, player scoring fiftys at last overs is not compared to big innings which had been done by the masters, they are reducing the risk, and this innings are mentioned to be mactch winning innigs....... sachin is the real master, he deserve the second spot

    We should not deffrentiate between Bradman, Sachin & Lara they are just too great in what they have achieved...Sachin has not achieved few of those things as Lara and Bradman has and Vice Versa...all have dont the maximum to the game of Cricket. So they just have to be treated with respect as the 3 Gods of Cricket

    Talking bout batsmen ova the years that have had to cope and score runs in tough situations.. We should consider Stephen Fleming. Basically, New Zealand have had a Horrible team over the last 10000yrs and for 1 batsmen to have scored soooo many runs in a team like that has to be rewarded. He should be before Martin Crowe.
    Stephen Fleming is a legend of Cricket.

  21. As fas as we Indians are concerned, we shouldn't give a damn about who is the world's best. since, every cricketing nation's cricket followers would love to see their man be at the top spot.Sir Don is someone, who we haven't seen playing live. so, there is no reference to say anything except to hear from someone from his years... So, come-on you guys, we know how it feels when Sach is on crease and batting at 99, isn't it. The greatness of any player, for that matter cannot be tabled and summarized into top 10,25,100 or else. It can only be felt from inside which we do, when tendulkar, the master blaster is at his best. So, the bottom line is to enjoy a sport without getting into any spats like we all tend to do. Remember Sachin is born to be a cricketer and not anything else.

  24. i don't know why people like pravanlara,dula have any credibility to comment on the god of cricket sachin,nobody is saying that lara is a ordinary batsman or ponting,but why we are comparing sachin with them or any other so called greats,the amont of runs he has scored in such a huge pressure of winning the game single handedly is unbelievable,if any of the so called great batsman can play under such pressure the will never perform as the great sachin.now come to the point of sir don bradman who played in the era when no technology were there to find his weakness or other technical faults,and also when he played the game it was a true gentlemens games.no media pressure,billion people expectation nothing and the tough scheduling of the icc,and the most part of his cricket life was played under the same condition of england and australia.......so before saying anything about the great sachin tendulkar plz think a bit atleast we are human not animal.

    lara beats tendulkar hands down simply because of how he dealt with pressure.playing regularly in a poor west indies team,he responded consistently with big scores after coming in at 3 for 1 or 6 for 1 or even 0 for 1.tendulkar batting behind the likes of azzhar,dravid,laxman,sehwag etc uaually came in at 130 for 1 190 for 1 228 for 1 and so on.where's the pressure in that.ask yourself,could tendulkar have done single handedly to murali in sri lanka what lara did to him?no way!!

Don bradman is the best of all time that is not an opinion that is a fact then sachin. Brian lara played a lot of tests so thats why he made so many runs his average wasn't insane. And warne and mcgrath whoever said that this list is about batsmans. But gopi seems to be the only one that knows anything about cricket.

    Don is head and shoulders above the rest anyone with an average of 99.94 is just awesome. Lara should be at 2 and Sachin at 3 because Lara played for the West Indies and Sachin played for India so Lara was under more pressure.
    What about Viv. He's my four what is he doing at 8 he was just so exciting.
    I love AB but he is not a number 4
    Steve Waugh is next at 5 the pressure he was under at Sydney 02/03 was intense but he still scored a century.
    AB is next at 6
    Gavaskar is at 7
    Sobers is at 8 What a player.
    Hobbs is at 9 he was in the top five wisden cricketers of the 20th century with Don Viv Sobers and Warnie
    Ponting is at 10 the volume of runs he has scored is huge over the past decade.

    This list is so out of touch!
    Bradman is there purely on his average.
    Lara is there purely on his high score.
    What about players like Barry Richards?
    He would have been the greatest batsman of all time, if it was not for a crap South African Government at the time!
    Graham Pollock too.... also complimented by Donald Bradman on his innings of 274 against Australia.
    There are a lot of unknows in cricket, who are simply left out, because of other over-shadowing reasons.

    My list:

    1: Has to Bradman - No one will ever reach that average... it is a great achievement!
    2: Barry Richards - Do some research on the man, and see what a true hero of a cricketer he was!
    3: Sachin Tendulkar - The man is a machine!
    4: Tied: Ricky Ponting - As touch as a leather belt! Never say die!
    4: Tied: Steve Waugh - He made the mould Ponting now fills! Gutsy and good!
    5: Viv Richards: A true great.
    6: Sunil Gavaskar / Garfield Sobers - nothing needs to be said... they were incredible players.
    7: Jacques Kallis / Rahul Dravid - Both incredibly gifted players, but both are slow, but run-scoring machines!
    8: Brian Lara - A good batsman, huge scoring ability.... against England, that is!
    9: Kumar Sangakara - Great batsman with a good record, but not great to watch.
    10: Greg Chappel - he was good, and I needed a number 10 for the list!

    Not particularly in any order after number 3, but my top 3 stand in my opinion.

  62. I agree, sachin deserve a second position after bradman,,,,,, He is one of the great batsman, world ever had,,,,,,,, But never match winner,,,,,
    For him 100th run is 100times more important than scoring 99 runs...... Check his record... Out of 48 ODI matches when he scored a century.... India won 31, lost 15 and 2 tie...... Shewag 14 century only 1 loss,,,,,,, Ganguly 23 century only 3 loss,,,,, Gilchrist 22 century not a single losss...... out or 31 ODI match, he shared 8 match with other batsman scoring century too.... and you know what he scored most of century on flat pitches, where Yuvi can score century, too but he never get that chance becoz sachin wont lose wicket on that.......

    Batsman's rating should be according to the bowling attack they played against, ie how many runs made against:
    Warne/McGrath
    Lillee/Thompson
    Wasim/Waqar
    Marshall,Holding, Garner et al.
    Hall/Griffith
    Trueman/Statham
    If you analyse this you may come out with different opinion.
    eg Ponting didn't have to face Warne & McGrath, Richards didn't have to face the formidable W.I fast bowlers, seems to me Kallis is no.1.

    Any list that excludes Kallis and Ponting cannot be taken serious. Both are superb batsmen and greats in their time. Kallis of course has the edge on the batting averages and is a bit behind on number of tests played so it will be interesting to see when both retire who comes out on top.

    How can any batsman who played only in 90s and early decade of millenium be ever be compared to those who played before that?? Now cricket is just entertainment. Pitches are batsman friendly. There were times when batsmen had to face injuries due to bowling friendly ptiches and likes of Sir Jack Hobbs, Sir Don Bradman surviveved them with flying colors. So if someone makes 30-40 k runs he is nowhere near Sir Jack Hobbs and those who make average lower than 99.94 are nowhere near Sir Don Bradman. Greatness is not merely about number.......its about numbers achieved under adverse circumstances..........
