    Bevan in the World Cups basically brought his A game when his team needed it most. The semi-finals have been mentioned.

    In 2003 WC, Australia dominated excepts for two games NZ and England, both in which Bevan played key innings to rescue the team.

    They needed Symonds-Lehmann and the bowlers to rescue them in the semis. Bevan flopped in that game IIRC.

    Yup, against Sri Lanka. The "Gilly deciding to start to walk" game.

    Bevan and Dhoni should be rated alongside those four. Both have been great pressure players for their team in odis.

    So these six along with Kohli would be the ones I will pick in my top 7.

    Amla is a tier below them.

    Hurricane was depressing from what I recall. All his posts came across as a grumpier version of that donkey from Winnie the pooh

    Really? I thought he was a generally a cheerful, good hearted and well meaning person.

    Obviously he had (imo, some big) flaws and there were times where he'd be condescending and stubborn but I never thought of him as grumpy.

    Amla is a limited overs fraud who has failed in every knock out competition whether t20 or ODI cricket he has taken part in. He most certainly does not deserve to be in any sort of debate about ATG limited overs batsman, a bilateral series bully and nothing more than that.

    mostly toward the end of his posting career. He kind of seemed always sad.

    That's a bit harsh. Yeah he has consistently failed to make an impact in ICC events against big teams, so it disqualifies him from being ATG, but he's still world class. it's one of those inexplicable things about SA cricket.

    I like to think of Amla as a great ODI batsman with a meh ODI career, if that makes any sense

    As I said, Amla is in my top 10 ODI ATG batsmen or even players overall.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    That pretty much sums up all SA players cause until SA win a WC none of the players will ever be considered great. Rightly or wrongly.

    The only player who has ever really had a chance of making an ATG team is Klusener and that is because he was at the top of his performance during the 1999 WC and it has stuck in everybodies mind. That his entire career may have been good without being great is entirely irrelevant.

    By some of the comments on CW forum I don't know why we even have bilateral series of LO stuff anymore cause it is meaningless. Just like winning the Ashes is the only important test series, regardless of how good those teams are, cause winning that makes you the bestest ever.
