    I dont have a problem with other posters thinking whoever they think is the best and dont understand why its so important to you that I think what you want me to think.
    Okay if I am a Bangladesh fan and think Bashar, Javed Omar and Nafis Iqbal are the best players in the world, obviously you wouldnt have a problem. Or if I am a cricket fan who thinks no balls give a batsman 20 rns, obviously you wouldnt say they dont.

    You can think what you want but stating 4 players from your country just disregards players of other countries who are also good. Which shows the least respect for them in your books. And that is some thing I can have a problem with.

    Then I suggest you see a psychiatrist for your problem because I'm unable to help you with this problem you have.

    Sehwag
    Dravid
    Murali
    ponting

    Other than score 400 not out and a couple of double centuries.

    Ponting would have to be up there. I have a lot of respect for his confidence and ability to take the game by the scruff of the neck with such authority. I dont think anyone in the world does it as good. You can see it in the way he moves and acts, he simply does not care and is not rattled. He just goes for it, which is why hes the best big match player in the game.

    yes thanks to that brilliant 261* against the mighty b'deshis. anyone who can put sarwan's name up there as the best player in test ATM is seriously a joke.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    damien martyn would be currently the best batsman imo, the one competition would be kallis, mcgrath, warne, kumble....well it's more difficult to pick the bowler, flintoff for best all-rounder...

    You've got to admit.....Its hard to argue with Scallywag's choices of best players..

    Ponting
    Warne
    Mcgrath
    Gilly....

    I'd like to argue against 4 aussies, but don't know if I can. If I was asked to choose either a test or oneday team at the moment and got the first 4 choices - I'd be quite happy taking the above 4 players.

    Even bearing in mind the lack of batting form from Ponting and Gilchrist?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
