    Great ODI batsmen

    i have composed a list of the top batsmen who i believe are OD batsmen who i enjoyed watching the most (this takes into no account tests):

    1) Sachin tendulkar
    2) Saeed Anwar
    3) Sourav Ganguly
    4) Aravinda DeSilva
    5) Ricky Ponting
    6) Steve Waugh
    7) Brian Lara
    8) Inzamam
    9) Sanath jayasuriya
    Best batsman = Rahul Dravid
    Best bowler = Muttiah Muralitharan

    Mark Waugh was a far better ODI batsman than Steve.

    I would say Gilchrist should be in that list if Jayasuriya can get in.

    An in-form Yuvraj and Sehwag- when out of form, they're terrible. Tendulkar is not so much fun to watch, but still bankable. Same with Fleming. Ganguly is no fun to watch these days- he's getting to be really scratchy, just like Nasser Hussain, and his fielding and running between wickets are awful. Dravid is definitely worth a watch when he's aggressive- he can make all Sehwag look pedestrian.

    Anyone here heard of a chap called Isaac Vivian Alexander...something ??

    The two greatest batsmen the limited overs game has seen are Richards and then Tendulkar followed by daylight and then a host of others.

    gilchrist certainly has been far more impressive in tests than he has in ODIs. if you ask me, jayasuriya is far more destructive than gilly in ODIs. it must be said that gilly is very much an overrated ODI player.
