Sachin Tendulkar vs Brian Lara - Statistical Records

Sachin-Tendulkar-vs-Brian-Lara

Ricky Ponting recently said that he rated Brian Lara above Sachin Tendulkar because according to him the former has won more games for West Indies than Sachin has done for India. When a statement like that comes from a veteran like Ponting, we inevitably tend to check the numbers and compare the records of the two players.

Verdict: Statistically speaking, it's almost impossible to separate these two world-class players. Both have been indispensable for their respective teams and their immense efforts have won their sides many crucial matches. For instance, in 1999, Lara single-handedly took West Indies to a thrilling victory over Australia in Bridgetown, while Tendulkar fell just short of achieving an identical feat for India against Pakistan in the same year in Chennai.
