    It's between Sobers, Viv and Tendulkar for me, probably in that order.

    Sobers and Viv for their skill and brutality, and I love the fact that Tendulkar was successful against everyone in every environment over a long time.

    As far as the development of batsmanship ever went there is only one person that should be considered here - the Doc.

    He played for something like alomost 40 FC seasons, he invented an array of shots which later became the framework of batsmanship & are still taught today, he was a gigantic attraction of his day & helped popularize the game immensely at home & abroad plus he set records that stood for years & years after his retirement.

    Apart from being a complete jerk, a cheater & a shamateur, there is much to like about ol' WG haha.

    It's only been 12 hours since nominations opened. Should give it alteast 24-48 hours for all the regular members to log in, read this thread, think about their nominees, and then post a response.

    Yeah, just chill. The more it's a community thing and the less it's a mr_mister thing, the more people will want to participate with it. There's no huge rush to get the voting underway. I probably would have started with zero automatic entries and just let the noms take their couse tbh.

    I would have liked to see this done the same way the 'CW Top 50' cricketers is done - each member could list out 10 batsmen and rank them from 1 to 10 - 1 being the highest and 10 being the lowest. All these rankings could then be combined to see which non-Bradman batsman ranks highest in CW's collective opinion.

    Actually think that Barry Richards might have been the second greatest of all time given the chance.

    List should at least include Kallis.

    Others to consider might be Trumper and Ranji.

    I won't be using this thread based on the fact he has been nominated. I am interested in interesting and educated cricket discussions and nominating him for 2nd best batsman of all time is ill conceived.
    He may already despite his short career be a nominee for the top 50 batsman of all time. But to nominate him as the second best batsman of all time ahead of Viv Richards and many more lacks objectivity.
