Will be in the top 10 for eternity.

I'd say top 5. He's a contender of being the 2nd best ever alongside Sobers, Viv and Hobbs. Graeme Pollock could have been a contender for the 2nd spot as well if his career weren't cut short.

What is a compiler ? a stat-padder ... who thinks about personal glory ?

1000% stat padder. He played like Gavaskar just for himself. That 200th concocted test was pure bucket of crock. Baaarrrrrfffff! On top of it gets a Bharat Ratna to boot. Clowns!

Among the top 10 batsmen from the top of my mind as there are a few that I would pick ahead of him. 

Who would you say are ahead in test cricket, and in ODIs?

From the top of the mind recall - Bradman, Sobers, Gavaskar, Lara, S Smith, etc. 


From the playing 11 PoV, there are equivalent players that can bring in more value such as Kallis (can bowl), add certain characteristics such as S Waugh (toughness/clutch), offer stroke play and flair such as Viv Richards, etc. 


PS in ODIs, there are a few batsmen in the top tier, depending on the role they play and specific value that they bring, including Richards, ABDV, etc.

I grew up idolizing Gavaskar. However, SRT is probably the most complete 360 deg batsman and the most elegant to watch that I have seen. In ODIs he was hitting shots no one was doing at that time and against quality bowling. And I am not saying this because of my Indian background. He probably under-achieved in test given his talent. I would have expected him to average in the low to mid 60s. My only regret is that he should have hung up his boots after WC 2011 when he has a almost 57 ave in test and ~ 45 average in ODIs. 


Happy Birthday SRT!!!
