    Avgs 51@ SR 89..

    Won his team a World Cup in 2011.

    O yes, surely

    He's definitely in all-time top 10 - whether he is no. 6 or no. 10 is open to debate, for example

    what a stupid question, close this thread.
    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

    If you don't think so, you haven't followed ODI cricket.

    Well actually, I haven't followed ODI cricket, and even I know this to be true.

    10 centuries, all scored in asia. 8 in india.

    clearly nothing more than a home bully.

    Silly reasoning in ODI cricket. Most of his games were in Asia anyway.

    Dhoni is a finisher and his match winning ability has to be judged by the number of games he has won for his team.

    In Asia, he is the greatest finisher of all time but what has he won for his team outside Asia with the bat.

    He doesn't have a single great match winning knock vs Aus/SA/Eng/Pak /NZ outside Asia.

    All his finishes outside Asia have come vs likes of SL, WI and Zimbabwe. He doesn't have a great knock outside Asia against a quality bowling side.

    And here is his record in CTs and WCs all combined vs top 8 teams:

    Avgs 32@ SR 90 across 6 tourneys.

    And what has he done barring that WC final vs SL scored on the brisk of Gambhir's magic.

    I am not convinced if he is an ATG.He has won nothing away from Asia.

    What has he won outside Asia with the bat to be called ATG?

    And Clint has a hatrick. If Dhoni had anything left to prove, he proved it that that day.

    Top 25 but definitely not in the top 10. I'm surprised his record is so good. He looked ordinary since the 11 world cup. His leadership skills is what makes him stand out. You need to dig into his stats further to see whether he was actually a world class limited overs player or not.
