    Haha, a bit cynical.

    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    Trying to think of a more rational reason, Smith has clearly been the most prolific Test bat in the last 3 years or so, and just happens to be his countryman. Smacks of Punter almost going out of his way to make that comment imo.

    Be different if he was talking across all formats, but seems that was purely Tests.

    I initially thought he meant the best in all formats, but then the article talks about Tests. Maybe Ponting was asked the question in an ambiguous way. In Tests, it's pretty clear that Smith is No. 1 ATM.

    Yeah.. I m hardly Punter's biggest fan here but he seems to be the last guy who would worry about something like that.

    "There has always been a thought that Australian players don't like it when other captains stand up to them. They like to make fun of a Mike Brearley or a Jeremy Coney, but put a Sourav Ganguly or an Arjuna Ranatunga in front of them - someone who stands up and mouths off -and they hate it." - Jarrod Kimber

    He is just keeping up a proud tradition of past Australian players dismissing current ones. The cases of a past Australian batsman considering a current one as the best in the world is pretty much non-existent.
