He was right to pick Lara over Sachin...Lara won more matches thru his brilliance.

He appears to have had a love-hate relationship with Murali

What, how can Lara be better than Sachin. No way. Look at Sachin's record, and longevity over 20 years

Arnold picked Wasim Akram as his best fast bowler...and his comments on "super quick" Mohammed Zaid is interesting.
