If it's supposed to be subjective then you can't argue any list... but stats are the only thing that can't be argued against.. and it's not just sheer numbers either.. a player with 5 thousand runs at average of 40 is significantly better in my opinion than someone with 8 thousand runs at average of 30. jayasuriya/ afridi can't stake a claim based upon their numbers in quality.. only longevity.
