    Best Batsman to Watch?

    Who do you think the best batsman to watch is?

    I have always thought Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting and Sachin Tendulkar are the best batsman to watch probably because they have wider stroke ranges than most players can bost.

    I like the fact they all drive butifully on the up and play exellently of the front and back foot all around the wicket. Sometimes you just stand and think OMG what a shot!! and for a moment you think thats the best shot I have ever seen and then next ball they play an even better shot.

    For mine these are the three most talented batsman in the world which does not mean they are necicarily the best but IMO they are the best to watch depending on what you like.

    Obviously some people like batsman who just cut lose and slog at everything (Afridi) but I rather watch batsman who play genuine cricket shots and hit them hard or over the top.

    I particularly like to watch Tendulkar, Ganguly, Jayasurya, Hayden, Gibbs, A Flower and Lara when in full flow.

    All are magnificent stroke players, and especially, Ganguly, when he gets going, it gives me pure joy to watch

    Gary Kirsten. He's super! Not only does he have every stroke in the book, but he's hung like a donkey as well.

    I'm enjoying watching John Davison rip the West Indian bowling to shreds at the moment.

    Wonderful!!!!

    One of the absolute greatest ODI centuries I have ever seen.

    The six straight back over Merv Dillons head to bring up his hundred was magic.

    Now tell me the minnows have no place in this World Cup.

    All the minnow teams are looking better than Bangladesh. I wonder whether they would have qualified if they played now in the ICC Qualifying.

    If Canada had a better first class system, theres no question who I think should be playing test cricket at the moment instead of Bangladesh.

    Oh dear, just as I praise Canada their middle order is letting them down big time again.

    Bangladesh may not have been rolled like Canada for 36 but they've been mighty close to it so I think Canada deserve some credit here.
