Its not important where you bat...............When you score 7000 runs at an average of 50..........That means he is performing consistently for at least 7-8 years.............Where as scoring 600 runs at an average of 36 is nothing great...............If Ashwin can keep his average at 36 and score 6000 runs then you might see his name in all time greatest allrounders list...............But that is quite far.................Where as MSD has achieved that milestone and is performing match after match......................There isnt a bigger match winner than MSD......................

I am not MSD fan but the stats and his performances speaks for itself.............@ Cricket is a team game but when a team looses the criticism is faced by the captain.................So when they do well the credit should also be given to the captain...........
