Analyzing Cricketing Legends. Do Cook and Clarke equal Tendulkar?

2 Cricket superstars, both legends in their own right, just completed their 100th test each. Alaister Cook has become the youngest player in the world to play in his 100th test. Many in the British media are already calling him the best test batsman England has ever produced. And Michael Clarke is widely considered to be the best test cricketer in the world.

Both have been around for a long time now and have piled up  numerous records and achievements between them.

Clarke and Cook have played exactly 200 tests between the two of them and that’s the same number of tests that Sachin Tendulkar has played in. So the analyst in us was very curious – how do two of the best current test batsmen fare against the all-time great, Sachin.

Here are the numbers, let us know what you think of these stats.
