"The one thing missing in this is you forgot to mention the fact that, in every series, ST (Sachin tendulkar) does the same. One innings for the people to say "Cricket's GOD" but rest will be similar to P.Kumar or for the fact much similar to Nehra."
So is it true that Tendulkar produces one memorable innings and then rides on it for a while? I looked at the data from all the series that India has played since MS Dhoni became captain. For each of the top 5 batsmen currently in the Indian team, I deducted their highest score in the series and then saw how they fared in the remaining ones.
If BRB/AV's thesis holds true, then the rest of the batsman should far outperform Tendulkar in the common matches. With the help of the Statsguru function on CricInfo and some Microsoft Excel formatting, I came up with the following numbers (click on the image for more clarity):
Apart from being outdistanced by MS Dhoni, which is not a surprise to anyone who has followed the fortunes of the Indian squad, Tendlkar holds his own and, if anything, has done better than his compatriots. And some of the innings that have been removed from the dataset for Tendulkar are two centuries in the finals of a tournament (Compaq Cup in Sri Lanka and Commonwealth Bank Series in Australia), 163* in New Zealand, and THAT 175 in Hyderabad. By the way, the last 6 times that Tendulkar has scored a century in the final of an ODI, India has won the tournament, including 3 in the last 2 years. Just saying.
So BRB/AV, the ball is in your court. Without those "Cricket's God" innings, Tendulkar is still doing as well or better than his teammates. What else does he need to do to prove his worth to you?
P.S. Also note how incredibly consistent MS Dhoni has been. Removing his best innings still leaves behind an impressively consistent run of scores in every series he has played.
