Tendulkar has played 4 finals in WC (1 GF, 2 SF and one QF) averages :- 45.75, Gilly averages 50.5 in 6 matches, Ponting 42.25 in 9 matches.
Wow so much of difference. What an eye opener. I am just shattered to know the astronomical difference between the averages of Gilchrist and Tendulkar in all types of Finals in the world cup. It clearly proves thjat Gilchrist is the best ODI batsman ever to walk on the earth.
So much for Ponting being so good in WC All Finals, Except for the 140 Not out against India, he has been ordinary at best.

Although Sachin's failure against Sri Lanka in the last WC might bring his stats down too. But we had a clutch of must win games in the 2003 WC as well, where he did well.

wtf at no Gilchrist....
He was voted Australia's greatest ODI player ever by his peers....why does Bevan warrant a position in this poll above him...??
I vote Gilchrist btw.
I would side with the Tendulkar supporters. They played much less ODI cricket in Viv's time, and it was not that important from a financial perspective. If Viv played in the tendulkar era of million dollar sponsership contracts (and had the weight on India on his shoulders) I reckon we'd rate him the best ever.
Where would you guys rate Jayasuriya ?
tendulkar is the greatest one day opener in history and in the top two of the greatest ever one day batsmen along with richards...all "arguments" that call for a ponting or even more amazing a gilchrist to be rated at par with them are at best clutching at some seriously imaginary straws...
