    New feature: The Big Five - Who had Most Impact?

    Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting, Jacques Kallis, Kumar Sangakkara - modern batsmen with more than 66,000 Test runs between them. But which had most impact? Dave Wilson investigates.

    ****ing hell no mention of Dravid at all? If Kallis is in there, Dravid deserves a mention right alongside the rest of them.

    Joke's on you. I waited for the inevitable zorax like before removing it. Now you can't even unlike it. Easy stat-padding.

    Doesn't take into account their fielding contributions, although that may be harder. Tendulkar probably had the least fielding impact, whilst Kallis, Ponting and Sanga probably had the biggest fielding impact. Tendulkar definitely the least. With Kallis' bowling taken into account, he definitely had the most overall impact, in my opinion.

    Good analysis. Pure run making parameters rate Sanga, Kallis higher, while match related parameters rate Sachin, Lara more highly Don't really see why Kallis' bowling impact is being taken here. Makes more sense to just focus on batting to me.

    Depends on if you're talking about batting impact or overall impact.

    Before reading your article or peoples comments I'm going to guess BC Lara.
    FAVOURITE: 1. Barry Richards - 2. Victor Trumper - 3. Rohan Kanhai - 4. Brian Lara - 5. Garry Sobers - 6. Frank Woolley - 7. Alan Knott - 8. Maurice Tate - 9. Dennis Lillee - 10. Sydney Barnes - 11. Colin 'Charlie' Blythe

    More importantly - graphs!

    Looking forward to giving this a more thorough examination when I get home and can use the zoom properly. Graphs everybody. Much love
