    Your top ten ONE-DAY INTERNATIONAL batsmen of all-time

    Same rules as before.

    One list per person. Not just players you have seen (unless you generally believe they are the ten best of alltime, and since its ODIs it would be more feasible this time).

    Happy listing.

    1. Tendulkar (don't care what you say about Viv. Tendy has all the records now. Over 40 centuries FFS).

    2. Richards (to have a s/r of over 90 in those days was amazing. And an average of 47 whilst striking above 90 even more amazing).

    3. Bevan (the best finisher and pressure player the 50-over game will ever likely see).

    4. Ponting (might break Tendulkar's records one day - runs scored, not neccessarily centuries scored)

    5. Gilchrist (revolutionized the use of keepers in ODIs, and a phenomenal strike-rate).

    6. Zaheer Abbas (see Richards).

    7. Lara (averaged 40 and I think we didn't see his full potential in the ODI game. Could have been up there with Tendulkar but didn't have the support from teammates and thus nearly always came in in pressure situations. Couldn't understand him batting at 6 in the later part of his career but never mind)

    8. Saeed Anwar

    9. Jayasuriya

    10. Ganguly (don't care what you say. Look at his record).
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan


    Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood

    Jayasuriya needs to be about 3 or 4 places higher on that list imo. Inzi should be there somewhere too

    Yeah, well 20 batsmen in a top 10 just doesn't fit.

    Cairns and Crowe.

    They both made me love cricket, Cairns in particular was instrumental, I always loved to watch him bat. The greatest six hitter I've ever seen too.

    Yeah as much as Bevan annoyed me, he was a great batsmen and should make all top 10 sides really.

    I will tell you though that Chris Cairns played the best ever one day innings i've seen live though. 102 or so against South Africa at the GABBA..

    5 Inzamam-Ul-Haq
    6 Brian Lara

    John R Reid would have been the best if he wasn't born in the wrong time.
