    Best batsman after Lara and Sachin

    Lara and Sachin have no doubt been the top 2 batsmen of the last 10-12 years. Who do you think is the number 3 after them (current players for the future)

    There are many players frm Dravid to Ponting to Hayden to Inzamam. I would choose Dravid.

    Dravid and Ponting are tied on the second tier IMO.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Ponting.

    He is a better ODI batsman than Dravid and while Dravid is easly as consistant probably more than Ponting in test cricket Ponting make's more hundred's.

    Ponting and Dravid now, watch out for Graeme Smith though, he'll definitely be up there in the future.

    Ponting and Dravid stand out currently, but if you are talking over the last 10-12 years it would be alot of retired players like both Waughs, Kirsten or Inzamam coming into the mentioning, or Stewart (leading run scorer in the 90s).

    Of future players - I guess Hayden, Gilchrist, Smith have that start, but also players like Kallis, Gibbs, Vaughan deserve a mention.

    Ponting, Dravid.

    No-one else really for me (although Herschelle Gibbs is moving up on the rails) - and I cannot separate the two either.

    by average over their careers - which as they have not had as much opportunity is all you can really judge them by.. what oportunities they have had.

    Once again Chanderpaul sneeks under the radar...

    Also, why is Kallis in the 3rd grouping?? Surely he's better than Kirsten, Thorpe and Fleming at the very least.
