    who is the most reliable batsmen in the world?

    so who is it. Guys like Tendulaker or Lara are great batsmen no doubt, but are they most reliable? i dont think so. But who is?

    in my opnion it has to be Ricky Ponting, the guy almost always strikes on big occasions, while Tendulaker and Lara mostly fail to do so on big occasions

    Yea, it has to be Ponting or Dravid. Ponting IMO is a better batsman but Dravid is more important to India's fortunes.

    Dravid or Ponting, the usual suspects. But as of late Mohammad Yousuf has been pretty consistent and Andrew Strauss, for an opener is fairly reliable.

    Record vs. Aus and SA isn't good enough IMO to be the most reliable.

    I think Dravid is the most reliable in the truest sense of the word, with Ponting and Kallis running him very close.

    Well, it depends what you really mean by reliable.

    If you mean who's most likely to score at least 50 or make some contribution to the side, i'd go with Dravid or Kallis, but if you meant who's the most realiable player to win you a match, i'd go with Ponting, Tendulkar or KP.

    Why is it that when people think of a reliable batsmen they always think of a rock solid defensive player? Lara is every bit as reliable as Ponting, Dravid and Kallis, even more so since he's carried the team on his shoulders for so long now.

    Ponting is not a defensive player - and people take him over Lara because Ponting and Dravid are more consistent. Most people think of consistency when thinking about reliability.

    LOL @ labelling Ponting as a defensive player.

    Lara and Tendulkar are more one big innings out of 5 players. Ponting is the most consistent in my view. I would rather have Ponting in my team in ODIs than Lara or Tendulkar because I think he has more potential to score those 50s as he does so on regular occasions whereas at this current time if you look at scorecards it is common to see Tendulkar out for 30 and under and the same for Lara. They do not have the same level of consistency. They may have had it at some stage of their career but not now IMO.
