A) * Agreeable name▲

B) ** Slightly disagreeable name ▼

C) **************************** What the hell is he doing above Tendulkar, in all time best.▼▼//▼▼▼

▲ Pl rationalize these names, why are they sitting above one of the better, maybe the best ODI's player of all time.

▲ I have categorized them, pl categorize your names, whom you find suitably sitting in this list & others who have no business to be there. They have hardly scored 2-3000 ODI's runs. Their positions may change in future, then they are welcome to be named in this elite list.

▲ Do you agree with my assertions or you have a different point of view. I am just trying to prove a point. If you can kindly avoid comparing any one, that would be nice. Pl share your thoughts..◆◆

Update:

Since I normally don't post stats related ques that frequently & I saw the list in Desi's post.

I ve seen trolls saying no.26-27 about Tendulkar, so I was burning my bal-s since yesterday over this list. Turns out that its the current list & NINJA has given all time best list. Not fudging data but mixed it up badly, apologies for this and thank you for still participating.

IDK if I should keep the post open but I have a spl request from one of my great friends, so it will stay open. Pl bear with me & say what you like about these rankings.. Ta

    Not sure where you're getting your data TJ. The ICC all time list (top 20) is:

    2 931 Zaheer Abbas PAK 931 v New Zealand, 20/06/1983

    3 921 G.S. Chappell AUS 921 v New Zealand, 03/02/1981

    4 919 D.I. Gower ENG 919 v New Zealand, 15/06/1983

    5 918 D.M. Jones AUS 918 v West Indies, 09/03/1991

    6 910 Javed Miandad PAK 910 v Sri Lanka, 08/10/1987

    7 908 B.C. Lara WI 908 v Pakistan, 26/03/1993

    8 900 D.L. Haynes WI 900 v New Zealand, 23/04/1985

    8 900 G. Kirsten SA 900 v Australia, 19/10/1996

    10 897 A.J. Lamb ENG 897 v Pakistan, 02/03/1985

    11 895 C.G. Greenidge WI 895 v India, 07/12/1983

    12 887 S.R. Tendulkar IND 887 v Zimbabwe, 13/11/1998

    13 886 H.M. Amla SA 886 v India, 23/01/2011

    14 885 M.G. Bevan AUS 885 v England, 17/01/1999

    15 872 K.C. Wessels AUS 872 v Sri Lanka, 23/01/1985

    16 863 G.A. Gooch ENG 863 v Pakistan, 22/11/1987

    17 861 P.A. de Silva SL 861 v Pakistan, 11/04/1997

    18 857 M.E.K. Hussey AUS 857 v New Zealand, 28/01/2007

    19 854 G.M. Turner NZ 854 v Sri Lanka, 13/06/1983

    20 852 M.E. Waugh AUS 852 v New Zealand, 11/03/1996

    Top 100 is here:

    Got a plane to catch....will add more from the lounge...

    Edit: Current form list looks OK. Few blips but I assume some players had a good run of form. All time list looks more sensible per the ICC ranking. Surprised Gilly isn't in the top 20, but he's a W/B and not a specialist I suppose, so probably asking a lot.

    LOL, that is NOT the alltime ODI batsman rankings. That is only the current rankings, that's why there are no retired players on the list. You're just manipulating stats to try and prove your case that Sachin should be higher on the alltime test players list

    If you look at their career best rankings you can see that Sachin is the top of this group with 887 and Amla is not far behind on 886

    If you want to see the REAL best ODI batsmen list then go to here

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/story/12851...

  • Those are not all time best ranking. They are all time best ratings by a individual players. They are not the correct way of representing the quality of batsman.

    As you have posted ODI ratings, those are best ratings within the duration of 6 months.(for test matches the duration of ratings calculation will be 1 to 1.5 yrs). Observe the date beside the player, it says "player rating from considered at that particular date with 6 months performance taken into the calculation."

    Those calculation has some flaws like depending upon the team totals. If a player scores huge runs & there is lowest total from opposition then batsman will get good points. It's a flaw. If both teams scores difference is low, then batsman won't get points. Batsman from weaker bowling team will never get good points.
