    2nd best batsman ever

    More of a poll than a debate as I know this is a common topic.
    My vote goes for Tendulkar. His away record; longevity, his record against arguably the best team ever assembled Australia; the quality of bowlers he faced through the majority of his career - compared to the bowling attacks of today and in previous periods.
    Obviously could list more but Im on a break at work ! (Just realised I listed Hutton twice not sure how to change it to Headly)

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    The last time I remember this being done was 5 years ago. Tendulkar came first, Hobbs second and Chris Martin third.

    Who Is The Second Greatest Batsman Ever?

    I see, Tendulkar won this poll by a fair bit last time then.
