    if you are talking about Best test no.3, I really think its unfair to pit Amla with Ponting and Dravid.. He hasnt played or scored enough runs..

    There was a time when I used to ask everyone if they had to pick a number 3 batsman and had the options - Ponting, Dravid and Kallis, who would they pick..
    Not surprisingly, most people picked Ponting as this was around 2005..and Ponting was on a role then..

    To be honest..I am not sure myself..I love both Dravid and Kallis..and Kallis is a personal favourite..so cant decide between the two.

    This was a serious post:

    Amla doesn't compare to Ponting and Dravid at this point. Ask again in 10 years.
    World XI Since 1990 -

    1. Gooch 2. Dravid 3. Ponting 4. Tendulkar 5. Lara 6. Kallis 7. Gilchrist 8. Akram 9. Warne 10. Ambrose 11. McGrath

    Amla's beard could be so epic in 10 years if he just lets it go.

    Do it Hashim!

    isn't the best the guy the one who scored the most in his last inning?

    Ponting 89
    Dravid 111*
    Amla 253*

    (otherwise I don't see much point in having Amla with Dravid and Ponting at this point)

    To chose between these three I'd go with ponting mainly because I prefer instinctively attacking batsmen.
    Amla didn't do anything of significant so far, more or less he plays as secon fiddle for kallis/smith. May be in couple of years he might become a world beater wait and see.
    And while comparing current no:3 s why the hell everyone ignoring sanga isn't he a number 3 ?

    As far as the best no 3 ever considered DON simply owned that slot.

    All time..Sir Viv

    current.. Sangakara/ Kallis (I still think that Kallis should play at number 3).
