    Surprised no one's mentioned Dravid yet.

    Let's face it - this thread was made so everyone could say how awesome Flintoff is.

    I mean 'who is the best cricketer right now'.... that topic could be made every week, it has no significance.

    Well there's great players and then there's heroes & Flintoff right now is a hero. It's hard not to like Flintoff. He seems so genuine.

    IMO, it's between Flintoff and Ponting. Ponting is easily the best batsman in the world, but until he does something to define his Test captaincy he isn't as great as Flintoff. (Given that Gilchrist captained Australia to their series win in India & Ponting was the losing captain in the Ashes.)

    For me, "now" is the last 6 months or so to a year, in which case the main candidates in my view are Flintoff and Ponting, with Dravid and Warne a step behind. The fact that Warne only plays one form of the game counts against him, as does the fact that his summer, while good, wasn't his best.

    In seriousness, if I weren't allowed to pick an Englishman for objective reasons, well I'd pick Warne or Inzamam
