    5 best current test Batsmen?

    in your opinion who are the 5 current best test batsmen, there are two locks in ABD and Sanga but who else, mine would be:
    ABD
    Sanga
    McCullum
    S. Smith or Warner
    Amla

    This would be my 5 in any order.

    Actually think the ICC player rankings do a pretty good job here, though they're dodgy lower down.

    5th one is hard, could be Kohli, Smith or Williamson tbh.

    I am not big on Chanderpaul. I don't like how he always comes in at 5 and is just playing to save the team and a not out realistically. I am loving how Steve Smith is developing. I am big on Kane Williamson as well. I would have had him in the top 5 but it would be insane to not have Younis Khan in there given his recent performances. Kohli, I will wait for a bit. The England series was an anomaly maybe but it was a really terrible series for him. Maybe in a year, with more consistent test performances, I will have him there. Kohli's reach is spectacular. Where people can just about leave a ball, he can comfortably play shots without stretching himself much.

    AB has been developing into the superstar of our generation. If he was an Indian, he would have been hailed as the new Tendulkar already. AB is such a star.
