Note : Pick Only 3
If its about all the 3 formats then howcome Smith is at no 1.
bhai i am not asking about all 3 formats anyway no one says sachin or lara are some odi legend or test legend they were simply the best batsmen of their era
i am saying about general best batsmen though test is the necessary and sufficient criteria for it
Toh bhai Smith sirf test mein hi aage hai waha bhi Kohli gives him competition time to time whereas he is non existent in ODIs and T20s hence Kohli is far superior if we go by overall. Even Kane might come above Smith if we talk about overall.
Best Batsmen : Kohli
Best Bowler : Bumrah
Best All rounder : Ben Stokes
Batsmen Steve Smith
All rounder Rashid Khan
I am including all formats here.
ODIs and T20s
bhai pick 1 only
Then it has to be
3. Ben Stokes
No body comes near Kohli and Ben Stokes in the department in which the excel, Bumrah has competitors in form of Cummins and Stark in test and ODIs respectively but overall he has an edge.
