For ICC ,Tendulkar not an all-time great cricketer

Sachin Tendulkar, the highest run-scorer in both forms of the game, has been excluded from the list of ICC though Sangakkara and Mike Hussey figure in Top 20.

The latest ICC All-time Test Player rankings, which was released yesterday, has no place for master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. Surprisingly, Kumar Sangakkara figures at the sixth spot while Mike Hussey is placed at 17.

Even Dudley Nourse and Dug Walters are ahead of Sunil Gavaskar, the only Indian who figures in the last--at the bottom (20). Not just cricket fans but critics are also surprised at the omission of Tendulkar.

Bradman tops the list followed by Len Hutton, Jack Hobbs, Ponting, Peter May, Clyde Walcott, Viv Richards, Gary Sobers, Kumar Sangakkara, Matthew Hayden, Mohammad Yousuf, Jacques Kallis, Graeme Pollock, Everton Weekes, Neil Harvey and Denis Compton.

In the list of Top 20 One Day Players, Zahir Abbas is at number 2 while Tendulkar gets the 12th slot. The top player is Viv Richards. No other Indian batsman has found place in the top 20.
