    Debatable under your framework given you get ~40% more Tendulkar time for your player.

    Nah, Kallis and Tendulkar both have the exact same longevity since I started following cricket seriously - they were both there at the start.

    there's flaws all over this bot

    also with kallis take his longevity and double it 'cause he bowls #questionablelogic
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    But your comment was players you have seen, not careers you have seen...

    Yeah, since I started following cricket...

    EDIT: Actually **** that argument; I think Kallis is better than Tendulkar anyway. He's so much more valuable on a game-by-game basis that he adds more overall value even despite having a shorter career. Deal with it.

    ex: say you started watching at time t

    Then we can say you've seen players who played after time t. Careers from time t is a different statement.


    re the rest
    itstl 40% is a LOT of matches for tendulkar to lord it over the average (borderline) player, for kallis' bowling.

    (Fwiw I think Kallis will play on after tendulkar finishes making this a moot point)

    Kallis is so underrated he's overrated.
    I think there'll sooner be another Bradman than another Warne. - Gidgeon Haigh

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler ever produced in this entire world - Muttiah Muralidaran

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler of all time - Glenn McGrath


    In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham

    Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.
    And is the greatest bowler I have ever laid eyes on. - Brian Lara

    it's not the numbers but the manner in which he plays "ugly and boring" leads others to not rate him highly..

    Even though I don't find him boring I can see why some would, but I just cannot see how anyone can say he's an ugly player. At least with the bat. His strokeplay is great to watch.

    His bowling action at times may have too much chest in it, but him bowling some jaffers that beat the bat and then outswinging half volleys that get wickets always makes me smile

    Probably the thing which I find most interesting about Kallis is how people rate him in ODIs. In Tests I think he's rated fairly, an ATG batting all rounder who has been enormous for SA producing so many crucial performances.

    In ODIs though I'm amazed when people pick him in their all time ODI XI's - I just don't see it at all.
