    Not really. It's a different matter that most here (like me) places a lot of emphasis on test cricket. But for me, when I rate certain batsmen and bowlers (not all, for various reasons) FC records and ODI records play a part.

    On test performances alone, I shall keep Sunil Gavaskar ever-so-slightly ahead of Viv Richards ( if I give 80 points to Gavaskar, Richards will get 79.5 or something). When it's very very close on test performances alone, and there's a gulf in ODI performances of the 2 players then I consider ODIs as well.
