    Gripping Averages Battle - Who Will Win?

    It's pretty interesting, the battle between these three giants:

    SR Tendulkar (1989-2010) 13 447 @ 55.56
    JH Kallis (1995-2010) 11 083 @ 55.13
    PT Ponting (1995-2010) 11 928 @ 55.22

    Who will win the averages battle and why?

    And who do you think is the best player (although this question could degenerate into a bit of a dog's breakfast).

    Per cricinfo, Smith: "Kallis has one of the most valuable players to have ever played the game." Stiff competition, one feels.

    Smith is also an idiot

    Gavaskar has called for wickets to suit Tendy so he can pass 50 test hundreds, Ponting tends to play or the team so I dont think he will. Kallis plays for the averages so I think he is the only one to have a chance of passing Tendulkar.

    Tendulkar obviously does not play for the team, then.

    and Source on Gavaskar's comments?

    Tbf, someone who averages over 55 in Tests and over 45 in ODI's with the bat, and has currently scored over 21,000 international runs to go along with his 264 Test wickets and 254 ODI victims and 156 Test catches (115 in ODI's), has to have made one of the biggest contributions to his national side, ever. That is the whole Kallis package though, rather than just his batting capabilities.

    Ponting on the way down it seems, so probably won't be him. Would back Kallis personally, though if Sachin keeps going as he's done recently, who knows.
