Who is the best cricketer ?

List some names and I would like to add a poll later on.

Best in the history of the game. Purely opinion I guess, but feel free to express your opinion.

Can basically count-out the rest, it's a straight shootout between those three.

Nice names there, will make a poll later and see who wins... maybe another member will think of a player you forgot to mention.

I think that question is a little bit too general, But i'd have to agree with the majority of people that have replied.

Don Bradman
Gary Sobers

Personally think it's between Lara, Tendulkar and Ponting. Let's discuss who's better out of those three :ph34r:

especially in regard to their records against Warne and Muralithiran, I know I am going to spend the rest of my night with statsguru.

I think it is Saurav Ganguly. Had he not been dire against anything above foot height he would have been talked in the same breath as Sobers, Tendulkar. Perhaps not Bradman. So I tihnk it is Bradman who is the best.

I promise you all I wont get into a sachin/ponting, warne/oreilly, sobers/kallis war with ikki or anyone else.

as for the question posted here it has to be bradman, sobers or wg. in that order actually.

what has this grace guy done to be considered among the top 3 players? his record is soo poor even some indian ipl players should get in before him.
 

DingDong

State Captain
yeah. i think so. anyway being a doctor and having a nice beard is no reason to pick some guy in the top 3 of all time ok.

I think the fact he was miles ahead of his contemporaries in FC cricket, like Bradman was, puts him up there. CBF looking it all up though.

He also gets a fair bit of credit for popularising the game in England, and for revolutionising batting etc.

Much like Pathan :ph34r:
