    Tendulkar as a World Cup player (posts moved here)

    The only area where I have the SRTs and MSDs behind in ODIs is that they've NEVER produced on the biggest stage

    I know people will point to the 2nd round of this or semi-final of that but, let's face it, that means jack diddley squat in the scheme of things

    So SRT has scored more runs at a better average than anyone in WCs

    Can you seriously claim that he's in the top 5 WC batsmen ever - no friggin way

    Anyway, let's not derail the thread - anyone that believes MSD is better than Bevan assigns more importance to just another series in the subcontinent than the most important tournies

    Pretty simple really and the suggestion is really farcical IMO

    Of course he is not.Ponting,Bevan,Waugh,Gilchrist,Hayden,Langer,Wa rne,Lillee,Shane Lee are all better batsmen.As for derailing the thread, you are the one who mentioned SRT.You must be one insecure bloke

    he certainly is. failed in the 03 finals against aus. but he took the team to the finals in the first place. won the man of the series prize that year, the only time it went to a player who didnt play for the champion side.

    as for the main question, dhoni in my books is still a bit behind bevan. because i do believe WC performances are important.

    edit: fixed the year

    yeah, too bad they dont care about your opinion social. SRT is indeed a very special WC player. last time CW selected a WC XI he was the only member of the team without a winner's medal. he will be in most people's top 5 list for sure.

    we are slowly forgetting the greatness of bevan. that is unfair coz he did in the 90s what javed miandad specialized a decade before that. shepherding the tail in a limited overs game is an art very few have mastered. bevan has a doctorate in it.

    On the contrary, It would be safe to say that most people would have SRT in the Top3(If not 1) WC Batsmen ever. He almost single-handedly carried his team in the '96 and '03 worldcups, and he was the highest scorer in 40% of the worldcups he played in.

    384 Herschelle Gibbs

    Absolutely. They should have given it to Ponting for scoring 62% of the runs SRT had scored, or to Ganguly for scoring 218 of his 465 runs against Kenya. Face it, SRT was by a margin the single best performer in the WC of 2003.(There were 3-4 bowlers at the top who took a similar amount of wickets)

    Ponting was captaining his country in his first major tourney

    On the eve of the event, one of the greatest Oz players in history was banned

    A player that Ponting backed to the hilt saved Oz vs Pakistan despite everybody calling for his head before-hand

    Ponting, almost singlehandedly, destroyed India in the final

    In WC 2003, it was Ponting first, daylight second, night third and who cares fourth

    Player of the series was a popularity contest, nothing more

    As for the topic at hand, Bevan arguably played a more important innings in that one series than the others have ever played
