Top 10 Batsmen of All Time (Cricket)
« see full list
No one will ever begin to scratch the surface of the type of talent Brian Lara was how many batting records does Sachin
have? Who else do you know can destroy England at his prime for 375 and then do it again when he is almost 40 and score the monumental total of 400 N. O (note the not out) Lara had a more finess refined game than Sachin, Sachin's talent was more soothed to the Asian continent stile of play on slow pitches with a lot of spin and remember how Lara destroyed Murali enough said peace
Absolute Class! Love his back-foot, flicks for 6s, and most important he delivers when required, the opening stand b/w him and D. Haynes was truly worth watching. Tendulkar has got most his records against weaker teams and when he scores team mostly lost (talking about records, he played for 25yrs like Mafia, what the hell) Lara should be on top
My dad told me about Brian Lara getting 475 runs and I was feeling shocked I just couldn't believe that he got so many runs in a test match you might think its easy to get that many runs but if thats you I recommend seeing a docter
BRIAN LARA IS THE BEST BATSMAN EVER AND ALLWAYS WILL BE NO MATTER WHAT
Highest test score and first class score in a single innings... Best ever when one considers that he did the bulk of the batting on the West Indies Team during the peak of his tenure there.
Lara has succeed where sachin has failed Lara having played. Less. Test than the Indian great has more record and achieved them in a shorter span. The best bowler in the world were at his mercy the only man to score 501 in a first class match and 400 not out in a set...
Pure Class often played with a team where there were few other good batsman and had to carry the side many times. Who else have score 500 runs, 400 runs, 300 runs and 200 runs in any cricket format while they played? Many times he was cheated out as well or else his average would have definitely been higher! Simply a brilliant batsman!
A batsman who can play for long hours but not consistent. He will play a few extremely good long innings. In between there could be a string of relatively poor scores. So while he could play some of the finest classiest innings on one hand, he would also play worse than some of his contempories.
But he is an extremely good batsmen but lack of good consistency prevents him from being the best.
Three cheers to him though
sachin above him could be bradman yeah but umar akmal give me a break!
Who else can score 400 runs? He can play all forms of cricket and is easily better then Sachin! How is Sehwag even in the top 10? Yeah Yeah Bradmans average is 99.94 but he only played when he was at his peak. Go Lara!
Thegreatest ever batsman. Gets going till he finishes. Feel proud that I lived in the time when he played and I saw the greatest innings such like 213 and 153 not out against aus, his fastest century against bangladesh and the 28 runs in an over against south africa and his epic 400 N. O against england. Genius incredible stuff.
Brian is an artist, he uses the bat like a the paint brush of the Vinci, his records are incomparable, and his powers of concentration unsurpassed. Despite being the "ATLAS" of his generation he did everything with style. I would pay a years salary to see him bat for 1 hour...
He is a classic batsmen who has set up his own style of batting. Stamina, energy, stylish shots, will power, hand power, smartness, leadership... What else wanted for a good cricketer?
he is the best batsman ever he even have the title for most runs in a test match. he is the best cricketer ever born.
He basically single handedly carried the west indies on his bat, and always performed when it really matters...
501. You name it, Lara's done it. His quality with the bat is undeniable. There has never been anyone as great as Lara, and there never will be. In fact, I would go so far as to say yo emulate him is impossible.
his skills patience and records speaks for itself. long live brian lara.
Damn you Indians always making pakistanis sound bad but Lara should easily beat both pakistan and india. HE MADE OVER 400 RUNS NOT OUT BEFORE!
Don't go by statistics. Just watch him play and you yourself decide.
He is classical and greatest player his personality is so different and he did one great mistake he retired soon that decision was absolutely wrong... He is amazing I haven't words to tell about him he is great.
Brian is a genius who played without the support of team, but surpassed everyone by his obstacles, He is truly a master class act
He is the best player ever in the history of cricket I think he is the number 1 player. He is most better then tendulkar, ponting.
Current holder of that record. Also holder of highest individual test score (500*)
Brian Lara is the best of all time. He own all ao the significant batting records. And he broke becordt when it was hard, againdt world class bowlers. He was playins 2 levels above everyone else
Most natural talent ever.. Shame he was in a weak west indies team, ig he had strong players around him, would have made a lot more runs!
I agree that Lara was best ever mainly for not only way he batted but also that, unlike the Indian & Australian batsmen, he was 'man alone' with no 'support' around him - imagine him surrounded by Sir Viv & co?! Louis Nel
