    Yeah, and only 2 matches that could be called close. It's funny your top 4 predictions are my top 4 seeds lol. Grace and Trumper are the darkhorses I think

    No they are not. Most on this board probably think that Lara edges Border and Sanga vs Kallis the same. We don't think there's a massive gap between either group of players just that most of us think the same way.

    Yeah a big gap doesn't necessarily mean the players are far apart; it could just mean most people agree that one is slightly better than the other. Sanga v Kallis was really tough for me.

    No, certain posters I can definitely tell underrates a player like Kallis from what you read in certain other threads. Some I can name off the top off my head actually because I have read from them that many times.

    I too rate Lara above Border though not by a whole lot, but Border deserves some votes imo given his accomplishments. Kallis on the other I think is better than Sangakkara though. Among players of his generation, only Tendulkar and Lara are above as specialist batsman for me.

    I agree that Kallis is under-rated here but I don't think this result is a good indicator of that.

    There are members here who tease me about how much I like Kallis and I didn't even vote for him. If anything, maybe you just under-rate Sanga.

    Not necessarily this thread alone, but I came to my conclusion from a combination of different threads overall, same for Border actually. I have been reading threads here a lot longer been posting tbh.

    You are welcome to have your own opinion but I don't think I underrate Kumar at all though. He may just be right after the other 3 for me.

    I actually keep up with your standardized average list, and it does have some bearing on my ratings, though I don't think it's perfect. Didn't you say the other day Kallis comes off as better than Sangakkara in that formula?

    Why?

    I was of the opinion everyone was either a Grace fan or not. People who like him vote for him in ATG contests. People who don't rate pre 1900s cricket tend to vote against him. Explain why you were betwixt and between these camps?
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.
