    Any attempt at some form of exact rating of, well, anything really, in cricket is an utterly futile exercise IMO.

    True. i think the only sure thing to say is that Bradman was the best and ne number of other batsmen can be rated at number #2.

    Not to mention #3-#10, and #11-#20, and so on.

    It is an obsession of cricket though, I don't think any other sport has the ethusiasm for lists and statistical evaluation that cricket has. This must be in large part because of the way the Sport works and the chances it offers producing a whole range of stats but it is in many ways a perculiar thing, but one of course which this site in many ways lives on.

    at the end of the day it is skill that counts, I haven't actually seen Bradman batting so I can't comment on his skills but lets assume he is number 1, out of all the others only 3 batsmen in my opinion could be at number 2 position, Lara, Tendulkar, Ponting

    Tendulkar > Bradman. Clearly.

    dude. tendulkar worship (or bashing) is not as obvious in this forum as you make it sound. who are those groupies anyway? of course i take strong exception to your equating the word **** with sachin. i think he is fine at no.6. dravid is probably too high. sobers or hammond or probably both should take that spot, above tendulkar.

    The hype about stereotypical Indian fans hitting the wall when Tendulkar is supposedly insulted is by far more annoying than the actual instances when it does happen. Many times, it's the stereotype itself poisoning the atmosphere and brings about the very thing it ridicules.


    In any case, no, I don't see a problem with anyone ranking a bunch of players from #2 through #10, as they are all close and it's subjective.

    Even though Im new to this forum I've been through enuff threads to know what im talking about and no i never equated that word with tendy u did that all by ur self. I clearly remember reading a thread a while back where i think Wisden ranked batsmen based on their peak ratings (by the icc) and Tendy came somewhere like 20 or 25 dont remember and boy did certain fans of his go off. If i can ill dig up the thread
