    Ratings of Indian and Pakistani players after the test series

    Pakistan, being the visitors, walked away with all the accolades in a 1-1 drawn series against India after coming back from behind to win the Bangalore test. That said, I wonder, what the media and the ex-cricketers would have said if it was India who did the catching up and drew the series after being 1-0 down.

    Osman Samiuddin rates the Pakistanis and Dileep Premachandran does the duties for his countrymen.

    In my opinion, Kaneria and Sami could well have swapped ratings while Razzaq deserves a higher rating, for the gutsy effort in Mohali and for the direct hit in Bangalore. Certainly, Youhana, who had only one innings of any relevance, cannot be rated so highly.

    Surely if Sehwag has 9 points and Dravid has 8, Tendulkar cannot be rated 7. Was Gambhir's contribution equivalent to Karthik's ? The other big mistake is Laxman running away with 5 out of 10.

    BBC Sport also rates the two teams.
