In case of sachin india always have a great opening pair & then wall so sachin rarely get a opportunity to bat at early

in all fairness it works both ways, sachin at times had less opportunity to score because he had less overs and most of the runs had already been scored but at the same time he had more opportunity at times because he had better partners and therefore got more overs and got on top of the bowling with the help of his partner giving him the advantage to score runs.
lara in turn, at times got lots of overs and didn't have many runs on the board when he batted which was an advantage at times, but at the same time he had poor partners so they got out quicker than the likes of dravid and laxman and therefore he had less opportunity to score.
they're both capable of scoring runs and there were plus and minus at different times for each of them due to their weak or strong line-ups.
