    Sachin Tendulkar - Best Batsman In The World

    Sehwag is for tests but if you take it over all, you have to say it's Tendulkar.

    As L_Trumper says -

    An absolutely incredible performance. He should have done it in NZ when he got out for 160 odd. But this time he timed it perfectly. Since 07 WC he is the best batsman in the world. With only one failure in SL in three years. How apt that he is the one who score first ever 200 in odis, now just hope that none of the "so called" dashers cash against minnows and spoil this record.

    Being the best batsman in the world at the age of THIRTY SIX. Absolutely incredible.

    He didn't get out for 160-odd in NZ, he retired hurt IIRC.

    But yeah, since the diastrous 2007 WC he's been the best overall batsman in the world.

    Sehwag right now. On form, Sachin is probably the third best batsman in the Indian side, after Sehwag and Gambhir.

    I don't think SS realises we're talking about all forms, since he doesn't believe in ODIs

    In fact, does SS know Sachin scored a double ton today? :-o

    Hilarious that you mentioned it - I was wondering what was up with all the Sachin threads in CC, he obviously isn't playing any Tests, and neither is any country.

    Checked cricinfo just now based on this thread - and that explains it. Sounds like a good ODI innings, but really has no bearing on my answer obviously .

    Dhoni is the best bat in the ODI side, Sehwag in the best in the Test side so dunno. Would still have Sehwag overall esp with Twenty20s.

    Yeah I agree Dhoni is the best in ODIs. I was thinking of mentioning this when I started the thread while coming home in the evening but forgot about it.

    Warner is the best in T20s IMO but it is all an opinion thing regarding T20s. There are not enough T20s to conclusively decide who is the best in it.

    Lol why do you continue to put yourself through this. You're only torturing yourself.

    This entire ODIs are meaningless, Tests are everything bull**** is so overdone. Pratters put on this show with his "Shows how much I care about ODIs" comment after the first match. And after this match, clearly shows just how much he cares. Clearly he would not have even clicked the scorecard had he really not cared.

    No matter how much of a "I'm a purist" crap people might put forth, deep down inside a true cricket fan is one that just loves the competition between bat and ball. All you guys care about is proving yourselves as purists. Complete bull****!

    I forgot today there was a match as well Turbinator until the 35th over or so when some one reminded me Tendulkar had scored a ton. I really don't care. I only care about Sachin. As some one mentioned, ODIs still exist only for Sachin to reach 100 international centuries.

    EDIT - I am not saying ODIs have zero value. They obviously are valuable but not as valuable as tests.
