    Indeed. Even though I think people who say the opposite are deluded or biased, the opinion is still valid; it's not a meme.

    You need to go beyond PEWSguru to understand the real value of Sachiners and Steyners in Kallisball... The Gautis and Mornes alone don't tell the whole story..

    There is no way to "prove" any one opinion better or worse than another but the poll in this thread seems to indicate that people are fairly evenly split on this issue.

    At the very least, it means it's debatable.

    Wasn't saying any differently; was just saying that people actually meant what they were saying when they said it and that it wasn't a meme.

    Yeah, I was wrong in using that word.

    Agree, for me assessing ODI cricketers comes under an entirely separate category. It's like Rugby & Rugby 7s IMO. Smacks of desperation trying to bring one-day cricket into the argument when we're assessing Test cricketers

    All incredible Kallisballers imo. As of now, Tendulkar>Kallis=Ponting purely as a batsman.
