Yeah I came here to say how shocked I am to see that GIMH has made a reasonable and informed cricket post for once.
Less of it please.
Does anyone actually come close to Sanga's record after he dropped the gloves?
68 Matches, 7175 runs, 25 Centuries@68.33
That is a ****ing awesome record no matter how you look at it.

He dropped gloves mid 2006.
Pietersen's name should be up there with the few genuine genius's along side Viv, Lara and Tendulkar. Unfortunately he never bothered to eliminate his propensity to play half an innings and toss his wicket away with an ill judged shot. His attitude to criticism has always been "That's the way I play the game".
Although I think he's more talented than Sanga there's no real argument for voting for him.
Personally of the current (modern era) greats I'd rank them Kallis, Ponting, Tendulkar, Lara, Sangakkara. Very subject to change, and not much difference between them. Do rank Hobbs, Hutton and Sobers ahead of all of them though, among others.
