Re: 100 TEST WINS IS 100 TIMES BETTER THAN PERSONAL RECORD 100TH

This is the greatest record anyone can have in the game. Test cricket is the best form and to have played some part in 100 test wins is indeed special. Everyone plays to win and if that objective is achieved as often as Ponting has, he is the KING of cricket. Even Murali's wickets pale in front of this.
Rickey's record is much bigger than Sachin's 100th Ton. Even Jack Kallis statistics like 23000 Runs and 550 wickets is Much Higher than Sachin's 100th Ton, BUT South Africa is Not a Rich country and Jack is Neither multinational favourite Nor is he media favourite.

@KdN, well said. Blind pseudo supporters of Sachin will always jump in defence of the midget. Ignore the idiots. Kallis is surely ahead of Sachin as a cricketer (more catches, more wickets and an equal average in batting). Kallis has also played on pitches where 300 in probably a par score for a test innings, while Sachin has played majority of his innings where the innings score for teams would have been 500 .

:) nice to know that only all-rounders are considered cricketers. By that token Kallis is miles ahead of Bradman, Ponting and Lara too isn't it?... ;-)
Hmm, I don't see the name of the 'so-called great' (Sachin) in the list?? Oh, I am sorry, I forgot his greatness is all about his 'personal achievements' and has nothing to do with his team. Go ahead and give 'Bharat Ratna' to him! (Yep, Bharat Ratna for someone who doesn't pay his taxes properly and tries to evade taxes).
I am wondering what would his mouthpiece (Gavaskar, who reminds me of Moussa Ibrahim (Gadaffi's spokesperson)) has to tell about this list. He would probably dismiss it as nothing!

Siva, though giving him a Bharat Ratna is not logical, i am sure our politicians will change the law to get him one.... And ur claim to see Sachin's name here is foolish. Please be reminded that he plays for India. Our team is not as consistent as Australia!

Our stupid politicians are always foolish. Personally, i dont think cricketers deserve Bharat Ratna (even if they get us 1000 world cups). Criteria for Bharat Ratna does not include sports!
