    Ponting doesn't come close to Sachin and Richards IMO.

    Love Sachin and his record is great but he's never remotely produced an innings to compare with either Richard's or Ponting's efforts in finals

    Personally, I dont have SRT in the top 3

    Care factor = 0

    Let's face it, I don't need to read those stats to know that by far the most important ODI innings Sachin ever played was in SA of the '03 Final

    He got 1 or 2 or 5 or whatever it was

    Any number of quality but meaningless hundreds doesnt change that

    Ponting has delivered when it matters

    another interesting detail

    Of the 38 finals that Sachin has played, India have won 15, lost 19 and NR 4

    in the 15 games that Ind have won, Sachin averages 99.90 [thats 100!]

    that probably makes him the single biggest match-winner in the history from those who have played 30 or more finals

    Apart from the World Cup, I'm not sure a lot of those finals were really that important or really compare with the only important tourney in ODI.

    when someone starts picking games [and a single one for that matter ], it means he has noting more in his arsenal and is a dead duck

    and by that logic, anyone who hasn't played in the WC final should not be considered .... and he was the MoT in that WC and had to go from ball one chasing 360 .... i wonder how much he would have scored if he had faced the tripe served by Ind bowlers in that game

    Good point

    Is Gilchrist, who has arguably won Oz 3 WCs Finals (the only games that matter btw) on the trot, the best ever?

    Helps having McGrath and Warne, when they don't give up 358 in the finals for you to chase. But nah, it was all Ponting.

    I think that's pretty much the reason the ACA voted him the best Australian ODI player ever.

    Nor should he be. He isn't in the top five, and not close either.
