    The best minnow basher of this decade

    Who has hurt teams like Zimbabwe, Bangladesh most in this decade and before consistently?

    Sachin's record against Zim and Bangladesh:


    TESTS
    Span Mat Inns NO Runs HS Ave 100 50 0

    v Bangladesh 2000-2007 5 6 2 556 248* 139.00 3 0 0

    v Zimbabwe 1992-2002 9 14 2 918 201* 76.50 3 3 1
    ODIS

    v Bermuda 2007-2007 1 1 1 57 57* - 29 196.55 0 1 0 2 4

    v England 1990-2008 36 36 4 1335 105* 41.71 1516 88.06 1 10 0 163 12

    v Ireland 2007-2007 1 1 0 4 4 4.00 3 133.33 0 0 0 1 0

    v Kenya 1996-2003 10 9 3 647 146 107.83 667 97.00 4 1 0 73 5

    v Namibia 2003-2003 1 1 0 152 152 152.00 151 100.66 1 0 0 18 0

    v Netherlands 2003-2003 1 1 0 52 52 52.00 72 72.22 0 1 0 7 0

    v U.A.E. 1994-2004 2 2 0 81 63 40.50 102 79.41 0 1 0 9 1

    v Zimbabwe 1992-2004 34 33 5 1377 146 49.17 1504 91.55 5 5 0 152 20
    But then, he has been good against all teams in his career.

    Who is the 'best minnow basher' playing international cricket now in your opinion?

    Sachin's a good shout, never fails to score against weaker teams. Which is completely, 100% a good thing, and it's funny how "minnow basher" is supposed to be an insult.

    Murali does well against Bangladesh too.

    Dravid doesn't do well vs. Bangladesh if I remember.

    Gillespie.

    I actually can't see how it would be any Australian really, given how rarely they play the minnows.

    Sehwag is not that good when playing weaker teams. He scores runs against top teams in the world. Unless you count Pakistan as a weak team - which they are not.

    Plays incredibly well against weak teams. Does'nt look for quick runs and does'nt throw his wicket away in the process.

    Really has to be Kallis or Vettori IMO. Murali's really racked up the figures with the ball but Kallis and Vettori have done it with both.

    Kallis - 817 runs @ 136.16; 31 wickets @ 14.06
    Vettori - 512 runs @ 58.44; 58 wickets @ 15.18
