This is my list in order of merit of batsmen who played short pitched bowling at express pace best.

1.Viv Richards
2.Ian Chappell
3.Rohan Kanhai
4.Inzamam Ul Haq
5.Majid Khan
6.Mohinder Amarnath(at his best)
7.Martin Crowe
8.Alan Lamb .
9.Javed Miandad
10.Gundapppa Vishwanath
11.Sunil Gavaskar
12.Clive Lloyd /David Gower




No batsman with better reflexes than Viv who played great paceman like a spinners,like in WSC supertests and down under in 1979-80.Ian Chappell was the ultimate man in a crisis ,playing the rising ball with great judgement.Rohan Kanhai was more inventive than anyone with his unique roti shot,falling to the ground.Inzamam and Majid had razor sharp reflexes and could even play a bouncer as though playing with a child.Miandad had supreme craft and virtually no fear in playing bouncers so close to his face,reminding you of a tennis player.Amarnath at his best was at the very top,as in the Carribean and Pakistan in 1982-83.Alan Lamb was master in manipulation.Vishwanath was the ultimate epitome of wrist play.Gavaskar was technical perfection personified.Lloyd played Lillee and Thomson better than anyone in 1975-76 ,at their fastest.Martin Crowe and David Gower had more time to tackle disconcerting bounce than almost everyone.

Great list but Tendulkar against short pitched bowling?not vulnerable at times?

Everyone was vulnerable at times. Sachin played against the who's who of fast bowling of the Era and scored everywhere. Some men on your list are not even 50% of him.

 

Not enough to go by fairy-tale and stories. Stats and record show his worth.

The best for me is not on this list . 

Alec Stewart 

He picked up short bowling very quickly , hitting his pulls and hooks forward of square and his cuts were hit forward of square .

Very unusual if he wasn't in control of the shots to short pitch bowling .

Although I love Viv, he sometimes wasn't in control of his shots

Inzmam was bounced out by balaji and nehra on Pakistani pitches. His avg in Sena  in 20s , less said about Miadad and Majid. This guy is alone responsible for whole Pakistani living in dellusion.
