    Top 3 ODI batsmen of all-time

    Looking at the Dhoni/Greatest ODI batter thread I want to know who CW forum members rate as the best ODI batters of all-time.

    I have pool according to the different roles batsmen play and chosen 20 of them who could be in the running.

    Please vote for THREE players of your choice in this poll. If you want to vote for someone else not listed in there, mention him in your post.

    Openers:

    Tendulkar, Anwar, Jayasurya, Gilchrist, Greenidge, Amla, Haynes, Ganguly

    Middle Order:


    Richards, Lara, Ponting, Jones, AB de Villiers, Hussey, Miandad, Inzamam

    Finishers:


    Dhoni, Bevan, Klusener, Symonds

    Tendulkar
    Richards
    Bevan

    Bevan makes it over Dhoni as Bevan scored his runs in a tougher time for batting than Dhoni did.
    5-0

    Richards and Tendulkar are the easy and obvious first two choices;

    Blogs: The best two ODI batsmen - Richards and Tendulkar | Cricket Blogs | ESPN Cricinfo

    But after those 2 batsman it gets difficult because it depends on what sort of batsman you favour;

    Top order batsman that sets up the win in the first innings = Ponting
    Middle order batsman who 'finishes' in the second innings = Dhoni or Bevan
    PRE WWI
    Grace-Trumper-Hill-Taylor-Ranjitsinhji-Faulkner-Noble-Lilley-Turner-Richardson-Barnes
    PRE WWII
    Hobbs-Sutcliffe-Bradman-Hammond-Headley-Macartney-Ames-Gregory-Larwood-O'Reilly-Grimmett
    POST WWII
    Hutton-Simpson-Kanhai-Pollock-Harvey-Sobers-Waite-Benaud-Davidson-Lindwall-Trueman
    PACKER ERA
    Gavaskar-Greenidge-Richards-Chappell-Lloyd-Botham-Imran-Knott-Lillee-Holding-Underwood
    MODERN ERA

    Tendulkar - best opener
    Richards - best middle-order
    Bevan - best finisher
    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

    Tendulkar, Richards and Ponting. Dhoni, Jones, Amla and AB DeVil close.

    I don't care for "finishers".

    Kind of shows how amazing tendulkar and viv Richards are because I'm pretty sure most people would include them in their top 3 test batsmen of all time
    All Time Test XI:

    Openers: S.Gavaskar V.Sehwag Middle Order: V.Richards S.Tendulkar B.Lara All Rounders: G.Sobers I Khan (C) WK: A.Gilchrist Bowlers: W.Akram M.Marshall M.Muralitharan

    All Time ODI XI:

    WK: A.Gilchrist S.Tendulkar V.Richards R. Ponting M. Dhoni M. Bevan Allrounder: K.Dev Bowlers: W.Akram J. Garner M.Muralitharan G. McGrath

    Not sure about "most" but both of them are up there along with Hobbs, Sobers, Greg Chappell and Lara.

    As for ODI's I would go with Richards, Tendulkar and Dhoni. Bevan is close but Dhoni's superior strike rate and ability to hit big shots at will wins out for me.

    You take my pawn, I take your rook. You take my bishop, I take your queen. You take my knight, I buy Mayfair. Because while you were busy playing chess, I've been playing Monopoly the entire time.

    Its wonderful to see Dhoni right up there. Usually we @ CW dont rate players who have not yet retired so this is great.
