If you asked regular cricket fans who the best batsman in the world is in their opinion, you would probably get a number of different answers affected by a number of factors.

However, if you were to look beyond simple subjective opinions and use the statistics available, would that produce a more satisfactory answer?

Using the ICC Player Rankings, that’s what we’re going to attempt here, as we look to find out which player is the best in the world with the bat in his hand.

Some of you may remember that we've been here before, so it will also be interesting to see how the rankings have changed in the intervening months.

Let’s first start with our methodology, and how the statistics available to us will be used.

All stats courtesy of ICC Player Rankings, correct as of 19 January 2014.
