This is for you all cricket fans,
Who is the best batsman????
I have included a poll,
since there are many i have only added only some.
please remind me if i have left out any important ones.
I vote for Sachin tendulkar since he is the god of cricket.
He can Drive classics shots even when he is under pressure.
He can make things happen which are unexpected.
I've voted for Fleming.....he's cool!!
Fleming is both hard haitting and glammerous.
He is one of the glammerous cricketer i have seen in my life.
Fleming is a shining black cat.But not as shining as sachin.
man! you left out 'rahul the wall dravid' from your list!
your list seem to have only the flamboyant strokemakers and for god's sake how do you put peterson amongst the greats like sachin and jayasurya?
these are batsmen who have slogged and toiled for their respective countries for over a decade and you put a kid who is rash, hard hitting and hot blooded along with them?
My list would have 1) Dravid 2) Ponting 3) Jayasurya 4) Kallis 4) Lara 5) Tendulkar 6) Inzy 7) Fleming 8)Vaughan(actually none from the english team)
If i could put a batsman in the list it would be Adrian Kuiper, former Western Cape and South African batsman.
I remember years ago when he dismantled the rebel English tour before SA rejoined the international arena. As well as his few international matches, he had infinate talent.
Not bad for an apple farmer.
Who can forget the innings Hershelle Gibbs played when SA beat australia to score 438? That was a truly great innings. On their day there is not much to distinguish Lara, Gibbs, Ponting or Tendulkar. But for consistancy I would have to go with Tendulkar. He has played so many matches and has the most runs.
Actually thats just ODIs
I am an Indian, I love Sachin, but I definitely think Lara has been more consistent in tests.
Ponting is great too.
Dravid is a class act !
Over the last 15 years, I would say Lara is the best
Peterson isn't a great batsman, he was a little lucky in the last ashes. He hasn't performed since. Lara was a wonderfull worker of the willow who knew where the boundry was. Magic!!!
Didn't like him playing against England though!!!
Well you haven't given all the batsmen in the poll or it shouldn't have been a poll after all. Not every one can have there favourite batsman just in the listed poll.
But amogst these i like Tendulkar The most , The way he plays from his pads i just love that. and well every batsmen has got his own abilities and weaknesses so none is perfect in all conditions and times. But i think the inclusion of such a batsman does not guarantee the winning of the game unless its a team effort.
