I agree - I remember the first 15 overs the white ball use to swing a mile. The likes of shane bond and Brett lee being unplayable. 1 over max these days

Bowling worse
New balls
Less swing
No reverse
More roads
Smaller boundaries

Loaded more to batters and thats before you factor in the modern guys fitness and power and the fact theyve been bred to hit. The likes of sangakkara and co werent

Top 5 for my money:
Kohli
Tendulkar
de Villiers
IVA Richards
Bevan - best finisher of all time.

Guys like Amla, Ponting and Dhoni just miss out.

In the ultimate school of finishing you've got Bevan finesse or Dhoni brute strength, both outstanding  but I rate Bevan higher

Virat becomes the fastest to 10,000 runs.

Probably already the best white ball cricketer ever - nearly 1000 runs in 2018 from only 11 innings

Add fastest to 1000 runs in a calendar year - 11 innings.
Baristow did his earlier this year in 21/22

if wonder if Indian fans on here think Kholi is the best ever, or will be in a few years

Sachin has god like status amoung  my Indian friends.

personally having watched most of the greats over the last 20 years I would have:

gavaskar, Tendulkar and kholi as the best ive seen.

Kholi perhaps the bet of the lot as much as SRT was an icon and loved watching him bat in England.

Hetmyer looks like a great prospect for the windies - I'd imagine he'll be in line for a massive pay day at the IPL and follow the likes of gayle and bravo and prioritise t20 leagues over west indies

Incredible game ends in a tie. Hope smashed last ball for 4. Windies should've won at a canter tbh
