    At this rate Freddie will go above 800 because the current rating will still factor in a fair few of his games before July 2003 which was about the point when his rating really started to pick up.

    Sachin's rating has been in decline, has it not?

    Until you actually look at the players from the 2 sides that is.

    It's part of this "superb" (4 wins in 43, 3 of which don't count) Zimbabwe theory you seem to have.

    And wins (or draws) don't come into how good the bowlers are - what matters is how well they have bowled.
    And in my opinion, while I haven't seen all the respective bowlers bowl every ball of their careers, they are all about equal in ability in the respective conditions.

    You may be right, but his rating has gone down because India have played several matches without his presence. Before the tournament started it was higher than Flintoff's current rating.

    Pure guesswork. It would be safer to assume his rating would have stayed constant.

    No doubt whatsoever you are right - but then again so has that of Ponting, Gilchrist and Kallis as of the date Tendulkar played his last ODI at the start of August. They played, they crashed and burned. Why should Tendulkar have been any different?

    He may well have failed, he may well have won the India vs Pakistan match with a brilliant innings, as he did in the World Cup. But predicting his performance is pure guesswork, and it would be safer to assume his rating would have stayed constant, in which case he would still be number 1.

    It would be safer to assume nothing - and just rely on the games actually played by the players concerned.

    Chris Gayle second for allrounders.Unlike Flintoff he doesn't bowl every match even when fully fot.Just think how much higher he'd be in the bowling rankings and he's the top West Indiian bowler too.Dwayne Bravo could be in that top 5 pretty soon if his batting picks up a bit more that is.

    Yes you are right, but Tendulkar's rating has declined despite doing nothing wrong.

    Top player in the side now IMHO - so vital to the Windies success in the shorter version of the game as a bowler now (and cool with it).

    A good job they don't deduct points for the odd "'oops' er, I mean yours" in the slips, though.

    When has Oram ever been overrated? I mean, who's actually named him in a World XI or such? He's an underachiever and goes about his work well. He is not overrrated. Look at his ODI record. I mean, statistics according to you mean everything! His RPO is under 5, according to you, isn't that the first and only sign of good ODI bowler?

    Because the performances at the start bracket of the time scale have now dropped out, I presume. Now I'm guessing it's about a 3-year thing, which means that to maintain the status quo he would have had to be performing in 2001 form.

    (I might be totally wrong in my assumptions here - just too lazy to go to the Price Waterhouse Coopers website).
