    ALl rounders will be included but remember: This is a poll for BATTING skills, not bowling.

    I include the teams of the batsmen just to let ya know which teams they play for.

    Indeed, magnificent a player though he was he hardly played in the period in question.

    2000-2007 is a very poor time to have in question - 2001-2007 would be far more appropriate.

    If you did that, I'd almost have Hayden. There are few better at battering weak attacks. Except Ponting - and he can actually score against good seamers, too.

    I am shocked that Steve Harmison is not included in this poll.

    Ponting > Hayden

    And by so much it isn't even funny.

    TBH, as far as Tendulkar is concerned, he hasn't been especially good since the end of 2002.

    4959 runs at 52.75 in the given time period should be able to get you on the poll, ahead of Chamara Silva at least

    Quite. This is an everso slightly odd poll, but... is Tendulkar's record seriously that good?

    From the New Zealand tour of 2002\03 to now, Bangladesh excluded, I'd no idea it was that good. Even so, he's been woefully inconsistent at the start of that time.

    He's still been pretty damn good in this period. All the flack he cops is due to the high expectations levels he has set himself

    I've got a report to write right now, but I'll certainly be taking this one up a bit later.
