Yeah spot on with that.
The actual order they gave is:
I think the ranking order is pretty random, especially considering Grace at 2 (not a particularly top Ashes performer) and Hammond 34.
Also Massie at 33 (one game wonder), while Trueman (all time great) at 48. hmm
Jardine as high as 5 on the back of one series (in which he was actually dropped for poor form) merely for behaviour that very nearly saw him deservedly lynched. Although I admit that this was very memorable stuff and is a very big part in the history of the Ashes.
Mcosker 22, Hutton 23. thats just totally random
For Ashes impact I think that maybe Aldermann at 21 is too low also.
In fact if Bradman wasn't listed at #1, then I would have presumed that the it was just the top 50 (using whatever criteria) just put in a random order.
