    Really tough one, down between Tendulkar and Chappell. I hate voting against SRT, but Chappelli just edges it.

    I voted for Ponting. Horrible to be supporting the other team when he passes 50.
    Or something.

    Richards and Chappell were the greatest batsmen of the 1970-90 era IMO so I'd like to see them in the same team........though this makes it a very difficult choice for # 5 & # 6 between Ponting, Tendulkar, Lara & Sobers......

    [as if tendulkar won't win ]

    My ideal batting order would be:
    1. Hutton
    2. Gavaskar
    3. Ponting
    4. Tendulkar
    5. Richards
    6. Sobers
    7. Gilchrist


    My second most ideal batting order:

    1. Hutton
    2. Gavaskar
    3. Richards
    4. Tendulkar
    5. Lara
    6. Sobers
    7. Gilchrist


    The likely, and IMO a mistake, batting order:

    1. Hutton
    2. Gavaskar
    3. Richards
    4. Tendulkar
    5. Sobers
    6. Imran
    7. Gilchrist

    I don't know about >>>. Maybe >, but Chappell was an excellent player, almost on par with Sachin, and I can't fault anyone for picking him.

    Honestly, to me the only batsman apart from Bradman that is better than sachin *skills* wise would be Viv Richards

    Sobers? Hobbs? Both better. You can make an argument for Hammond, Hutton, Chappell, Richards, Headley, Weekes, Pollock, and Lara too. Not saying all are necessarily better, but IMO its clear that at least Hobbs was better, and you can make an argument for the rest of them. So, in my rankings, Sachin could go in anywhere from #3 all time to #13.

    Alright I agree with you on Hobbs, but Sobers is par with Sachin imo, and sachin being ahead of the rest.

    Ponting almost reaches Sachin despite playing much less - will overtake him and I think by the end of his career will be regarded even higher.
