    If you look just at stats , they're quite meaningless. Two new balls and the modern ODI rules actually favour openers. Why do you think we have the likes of Roy,Hales,Warner, Rohit,Dhawan etc. striking around 100 in ODIs after 2015. The white ball used to swing more earlier because it was of s superior quality. The white kookaburra ball used now is inferior and we have two of them which means it's easier to hit through the line since they remain harder for longer without any real lateral movement. 35/104 stats of Sehwag in an era of only 1 white superior kookaburra ball was worth its weight in gold even if he underacheived somewhat. Sachin/Sehwag combo were probably the fastest of the time in which they played ahead of even Hayden /Gilchrist for impact. Rohit/Dhawan don't have the impact of Hales/Roy as a combo or even the individual impact or a QDK have.

    Huh? Donald, Pollock, Wasim, Waqar, Saqlain, Warne, McGrath and Ambrose. Thought it was pretty obvious. Murali wasn't a great ODI bowler in the 90s but went on to become one in 00s. Then you had guys like McDermott and Fleming performing at an extremely high level in the 90s. Who exactly are their equivalent bowlers in this decade besides Starc? As for Warne, how is he not an ATG despite having a superb overall record and multiple match-winning performances in WC KO games?
     
    It's the other way around. Chasing 280+ (forget 300) was borderline impossible in the 90s as the top 4 sides (AUS/SA/PAK/WI) generally had good to very good attacks most of the time. As a batsman, if you're chasing 300, who'd you rather face -
     
    Warne/McGrath/Fleming + one out of Reiffel/Gillespie/McDermott or Starc/Hazlewood/Cummins/Mitch Marsh/Zampa
    Akram/Waqar/Saqlain/Aaqib or Ajmal/Gul/Junaid/Wahab etc
    Ambrose/Walsh/Patterson/Bishop/Benjamins or Rampaul/Holder/Bishoo/Joseph
    Donald/Pollock/DeVilliers/Klusener/Kallis or Steyn/Morkel/Rabada/Tahir
     
    Only the SA attack is remotely close to their 90s attack and even here Steyn is not a patch on Donald and Pollock as an ODI bowler. No wonder many more 300+ scores are made these days.
     
    So you'd regard Morne Morkel, Boult, Tahir and Johnson as ODI ATGs but not Warne? Okay.

    High average + high SR with century every 6 match. Which other batsman had such performance?

    But it was?
     
    Look at the best ODI bowlers going around in the 90s
     

     
    There are at least 8-9 ATG bowlers in this list.
     
    Compare it to the best bowlers of this decade
     

     
    I mean is there even a comparison. Except for Starc, would any of these guys be considered ODI greats by the time they are finished? Batting in ODIs has just got infinitely easier. Which is why you have folks like Williamson/Guptill having better raw stats than Lara and Rohit Sharma having better raw stats than Ponting.

    I think youngsters like...dhoni,Karthik,raina and maybe even yuvi will be sent..rohit and pandya will fill up rest of the places.  While rahane should also get a chance in t20s after his epic performances in odis.
