    If you think about it, Bradman isn't miles ahead of the all-rounders that are being discussed here.

    However, if you looked at just batting, then you have a case.

    If Bradman isn't the best cricketer then there's no way you can definitively call any other player the best ever. Bradman is pretty much the only one whose career, stats, achievements etc. are compelling enough to put him above anyone else.

    Jahangir Khan. He won 555 games consecutively over a period of 5 years in squash (a sport more physically demanding than cricket, football, tennis, etc). This is the largest winning streak by a sportsman or a team. At one point he was known as the fittest man on the planet.

    To me he is the greatest sportsman in history.

    "When she retired in 1981 at the age of 40, McKay had gone nearly 20 years undefeated (with the only two defeats to her name occurring at the beginning of her career). Since retiring from the top-level game, she has remained active in international Masters level events, and has won two over-45 world championship titles and two over-50 world championship titles."
