    he was a great cricketer, without him the windies would have struggled to beat anyone.

    10,000 plus @ 50+ are some damn good numbers

    The way McGrath and others regard him says it all I think, great batsman, that's about it, not much else to crow about on and off the field.

    i think mcgrath has despised the entire windies team ever since his sledge backfired on him.

    Brian Lara, fantastic batsmen... absolutely loved watching him when he was in full flight even if it was against us.

    best bat Ive ever seen in full flight.

    as for great cricketer, nope, couldnt captain to save his life and was a very selfish player.

    as for his batting he is in the top flight.

    I was going to say the same thing Fro.
    Great batsman but I think on both occasions when he went for the records , he made it so his team could only draw and missed out on the win.
    Selfish , also not that good a fielder.
