    No England players in top 10 batters yet 3 Englishmen in top 10 runs scorers of 2003. Interesting.

    Can't really disagree with them though, has IMO the right order of Top 3 in Test (Batting).

    The odi batting ratings are a non-contest, clearly the only person viable for the spot is sachin. Chris Gayle has had a very good year allround as well, although it is slightly worrying that he is the highest rated of the West Indian bowlers in odi's...

    I'm not actually - I think he's one of these bowlers that quietly go avout their jobs and can always be depended on for 2 or 3 wickets. As such they are vastly under-rated, but every team looks better with one in there when they don't have the devasting strike bowler - a bit like a Gus Fraser for example?

    PY - England played 13 tests this year. Compared to Rahul Dravid who played 5. But still scored nearly as many runs as many! I was quite impressed though to see everyone in out top 6 averaging 40+ for 2003.

    Agreed - now just to get the bowling attack to back them up!

    Indeed. I do feel though that if we had a group of bowlers stay fit we would be very competitive (ie Hoggard, Flintoff, Jones, Anderson, Harmison (maybe), Johnson, etc).

    Latest Rankings!

    Test Batsmen

    1 Brian Lara 912
    2 Ricky Ponting 891
    3 Rahul Dravid 884
    4 Matthew Hayden 881
    5 Inzamam-ul-Haq 811
    6 Jacques Kallis 808
    7 Sachin Tendulkar 783
    8 Herschelle Gibbs 781
    9 Mark Richardson 775
    10 VVS Laxman 756

    Test Bowlers

    1 M. Muralitharan 908
    2 Shoaib Akhtar 861
    3 Shaun Pollock 860
    4 Glenn McGrath 798
    5 Jason Gillespie 751
    6 Anil Kumble 748
    7 Makhaya Ntini 728
    8 Daryl Tuffey 721
    9 Harbhajan Singh 655
    10 Chaminda Vaas 629

    Not much surprise to see Sachin Tendulkar back in the top 10 (where he rightly belongs in my opinion), fantastic to see VVS Laxman get his recognition after many frustratingly inconsistent years at the top.

    Im surprised to see Shoaib Akhtar take out the number 2 spot!! Ive always liked Shoaib and its good to see him up there. The fighter from Bangalore, Anil Kumble continues to climb up that list.

    Woohoo, Lara's back! :P Not surprised to see Shoaib there, after his demolition of NZ.

    McGrath's missed four tests, so that means ~8% off his rating, and he wasn't at his best in the WI, IIRC, and I don't think 860 is under-rating someone WRT Pollock!!
