    Is Dhoni greatest OdI cricketer off all-time

    Cricinfo - Players and Officials - MS Dhoni

    His Batting stats alone make him almost a lock for an all time odi team and then you add his solid to good keeping and fantastic captaincy and too my mind you get the most complete odi player.

    Sachin & Wasim would be close cases but Dhoni covers all bases more efficiently

    Way to go...he is not even the best wicketkeeper of current time, leave alone the best ODI cricketer status!

    Let him finish his career and we’ll see where he ends up. Right now, a very definitive no IMO.

    Different eras n all and then their is a stigma at Kallis that he is no match winner on the other hand Dhoni is quite good in this regard.

    An average of 49 is certianly impressive

    But he's been not out in 26% of the innings he's played.

    I'm with sammy2 --> only 4 centuries?

    Gilchrist had 16 centuries (that's 4 times as many in only twice as many games) and has twice as many fifties (which is on par since he's played twice as many games). Gilly just didn't get as many "not outs" as he was almost always opening. And yet his SR is still better than Dhoni.

    One might say 'but Dhoni doesn't get the chance to get hundreds since he's down the order' - well, sure - but if you look at his FC or test record, then you'd note that he's not a century maker in the same vein as other 'proper batsmen' around the world.

    I'm not arguing for Gilchrist as the best over ODI player - but he's close than Dhoni, who isn't anywhere near it I'm afraid....
