    I went with Lax.I left Tendu out of the poll to avoid a one-sided affair and the usual mundane arguments

    Sangakkara for sure. I'd put im equal with Dravid when it comes to playing pace. If you want the player who can play the bullying, fast, short, furious bowling, then it's Jayawardane of youth, the best puller and hooker out of the above. He starts to look ordinary when the ball is pitched up.

    Sangakkara for sure. Not just good against pace, but also on bouncy/fast pitches.

    Younis is not too good either. Tendulkar should have been there. It would have been a good contest between Tendy and Sanga

    Exactly. My list will be 1. Tendulkar, 2. Dravid, 3. Sanga.
    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
    - Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)

    Yeah I was thinking of analogous threads to this one. This would be like having a poll "Best Sub-continental fast bowlers of the 1990s" and then you don't add Wasim and Waqar.

    I admit I forgot Dravid(there is the "other" option).Tendulkar-I've already explained above.
