    Makes sense. Hard to argue. Muralitharan, Kallis should be closer though, if not ahead.

    But you can't say it wasn't undeserved.

    Well Deserved. I think the only real competition to Ponting was from Murali.

    Kallis has to be up there too, as he was.

    Well deserved. Best batsman of the decade and the most successful (not the best) captain of the decade.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Ponting's totally deserved for mine...struggling to see why Tendulkar's so high though...has he even been one of the top 4 batsmen of the decade? (not counting anything pre 2000).

    Cricinfo seems to be surprisingly Indian based, so there's probably biasness in there. Plus, he's overrated due to past exploits.

    A batsman gets it for dominating on flat pitches.

    Murali and Kallis head and shoulders for mine.
