    CW rates Tendulkar IIRC, also Kallis.

    Some guys generally ask us to wait for 100 years till the players play in all conditions facing all type of bowlers on all countries before rating them..He is referring to them. Kallis and Sachin do not fall into that category. Usually Steyn and Philander do.

    Not even the best English ODI opener of the early 2000s. Nick Knight all the way.

    Good times.
    That argument is less ridiculous than it sounds. Depends on what you want out of a OD opener.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    12 tons vs 5 and a better strike rate

    Zaheer Abbas would have to be worth a shout. Average of 47 and SR of 84 in the early 80s when scores and strike rates were much lower. Ranked no 2 in best ever rating (just behind Viv). & he would've had to bat against the WI quicks
    honestbharani and ankitj like this.

    Found this: All-time W100 ODI Top 10s | Cricket News | Global | ESPN Cricinfo

    The date on the article is Jan 2003. I seem to remember that soon after world cup 2003 (which would be March 2003) when wisden updated its ranking, Tendulkar had overtaken Richards in ODI rankings. And I think they stopped updating their ranking soon after that.
