|Greatest player of spin bowling|
Now lets look in a different manner that is how closely team performance is related with their individual performances. If we use most rational(it is subjective although) weights 4/7 for win,2/7 for draw and 1/7 for loss ,then calculate average called CA(combined avg Asia) and CF(combined avg fast bowling friendly conditions).CP(Contributing parameter of batsman) is equal to 2/3*CF +1/3* CA for Sachin and Dravid,1/3*CF+2/3*CA for Ponting and Lara putting double weights on away conditions than on home conditions.
The large value of CP for Dravid is a clear reflection that India’s success or failure was greatly affected by his batting. Ponting’s least CP value once again compel us to think was he really a good player against spin bowling .Under the average adjusted for outcome of match i.e CF and CA we again go back to the first parameter and it gives an idea that Dravid was an outstanding player overseas but his performance dipped relatively in Asian pitches. Ponting does not have significant difference which is quite evident from the fact that he played alongside best players of the world.The result of the match was mostly affected by the likes of Mcgrath, Warne, Gillespie, Hayden ,Gilchrist and Lee. Lara has least fluctuation and the major reason is that West Indies never had any reliable bowling lineup in his era and Chanderpaul performance form the center stage.

Looking at the above table it is absolutely clear that little master is way ahead than others moreover Ponting’s poor technique against spin bowling has skewed his average.Tendulkar is the only one to have average of over 50 runs in both the conditions.As a saying class is invariant of conditions and Tendulkar is the prime example.
