To q's such as who is best batsman or bowler or alrounder,we are basing answers on statistics and the performence of players whom we have seen.Hence th answers are not absolute.Just for example i have seen the great pak. batsman Hanifmohammad who is the original little master.I have seen Gavasker batting he is the best indian batsman who showed Indian cricketers how to play the fastest bowlers in the world when there was no head protection,i have seen Tendulker being struck on his head many times,those days one hit is enough to end your career like N. Contractor had to. . I have observered that no Indian batsman could stand up to the pace of the w.indies before Gavasker era.,except 2 batsman Polly Umrigar scored 172 not out and Dilip Sardesai 200 plus ,which i have heard the commentry..S Gavasker is better then Tendulker is my opinion. I know 99% will disagree with me.SimilarlyI have not seen Len Hutton,G.Headly,Walcott,Weeks,Lala Amarnath,Vijay Hajare,Vinoo Mankad,i may also disagee with some other person,s opinion as to who is the best batsman.
Finally , we should not compare any batsman with Don Bradman,he incomparable.All other batsman can be compared among themslves ,as to who is best.The more elder cricket expert gives his opinion ,the more credibility it will have becuse he can compare batsmen of differnt generation..Sorry for the long answer.
