I think you're doing Kallis a disservice - his stats are as good as Ponting's. The fluency of style isn't quite there with him, as you say Ponting was quite dominant and hence isn't quite as good but he's nearly there. Ponting's not quite as good as L&T but he's nearly there.
The one Ponting never faced? And an average of 40 is nowhere near piss poor.

Ponting is a better bat that Kallis, never though there was much doubt about that. Kallis the cricketer though wins out though when you factor in Ponting's captaincy and fielding (especially in the slips) its closer than most think.

Sour cream and sweet chilli is good as well.
