    Fleming v Hooper v Vaughan v Hussey v Sangakkara

    Rip off from the bowling threads. Ranking the batsmen in descending order on who you think was the best. Tests only and vote in the poll.

    Sangakkara clearly ahead then guess it has to be Hussey, other three all somewhat similar I would say, could probably say for all of them that they either looked better than they actually were or never quite fulfilled their potential.

    Sanga obviously way ahead, and Hussey obviously way ahead of the rest here IMO. Fleming vs. Vaughan in itself is an interesting comparison indeed, especially if you bring captaincy into the equation too.

    Venkatapathy Raju was left stranded on 93 wickets, otherwise I'd nominate him, even though his numbers are superior to Hooper's..

    Hooper was a brilliant batsman. Capable bowler as well, not sure why he gets hate there.

    Don't hate Hooper at all tbh, just think he massively under-achieved with his natural ability. Wouldn't have him massively far behind Vaughan overall, but think Sanga and Hussey substantially better.

    I always thought of Carl Hooper as a selfish douche bag who had his own interests at heart. I mean he lost the captaincy to Brain Lara after the 2003 World Cup and just before the Test against Australia he pulled out because he decided that the 'youngsters should have a turn' and this was after Sarwan had been ruled out with an injury. WAC.
