    Dunno. Maybe Lara was number one when they were mud but it'd be a pretty rare event you'd think

    Statistically, Chris Gayle and Shivnarine Chanderpaul have been more or less the 2 best batsmen in ODIs since the World Cup.

    Lara was top of both in 96 and Richards on top of both in 88.

    Doubt anyone else have managed it.

    True, Chanderpaul is now ranked at number 3.
