Sachin or Chris Martin - The better batsmen?

Martin, obviously.

Update:

EDIT Yeah lol that one was spectacular. When Martin is at the crease you don't hog the strike.

Update 2:

I have found a Chris Martin Masterclass: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_NsFh-Z4aE

    I love Chris Martin

    He makes Glen McGrath look like Don Bradman.

    Mind you, he makes Don Bradman look like Don Bradman, and I mean the currently dead Don Bradman is a better batsman, even though he is dead, then Chris Martin.

    Actually, even the other Chris Martin, the lead singer for Coldplay, is a better batsman then the cricketer Chris Martin.

    Sachin Martin

    Go Tom!! I see he scored a blistering innings of 1 in the recent test match. I loved the commentary on Cricinfo where Brownlie scampered back for 2 runs and the commentator came out with "He's hogging the strike, what a nerve!! He'll ruin the Phantoms fluency"

    Yeah, that masterclass was done by Bill and Ben, the Pulp Sport guys. They're all class, look up more of their stuff if you want a good laugh. Here's on where they combine cricket and Rugby to form "crugby" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zarc4czxHXY&feature...

    Don't put Chris Martin in the same category as that no-hoper Sachin. He's my batting hero.

    @Neil, Crugby looks like a Trans-Tasman challenge, mate!

    Martin can't ball tamper, lie or play for glory points,so he's got a lot to learn from Sachin,the master of all those things.

    At least Martin is out there having a go, not sitting in his palace with his feet up because he needs a rest.

    lol,this should bring some testy answers! I have heard so many Chris Martin jokes this last few days from radio & TV commentators.At the moment he is probably neck & neck with Sachin who,when he bothers to grace the team with his presence,does very little to justify his selection.

    mmmm.....very easyto compare sachin is better. different bitween sachin and Chris is 50 ( in average ). also difference between Don Bradman and Sachin is also 50.

  • Sachin obviously, 1st man to reach 200 in the ODI'S, most runs in the world cup history, 1st man to reach 15,000 Test runs, got the most centuries {99, going to get 100 centuries}, 3rd highest scorere of all time {T20,{IPL}, ODI, TEST} need 197 runs to become the top, 69 to become the 2nd top!

    Who is better now? SACHIN!
