UMAR GUL V SACHIN TENDULKAR
Tendulkar (379 runs @ 54.14), the world's greatest batsman, is fiercely focused and determined in what is likely to be his final chance to play in a World Cup winning side. He has scored two hundreds and has a maximum two chances left at this tournament to record a 100th international century before a home crowd.
Gul (14 wickets, economy rate 3.86) does not have the high profile of other Pakistan pace bowlers, including his team mate Shoaib Akhtar, but he has become a consummately skilled operator. Strong and lively, Gul is dangerous with the new ball and a master of reverse swing with the old.
