Will any of them leave a lasting memory like Viv, Lara, Sachin or Gavaskar?
No,mention of KP? He is my second favorite of the bunch after Amla... The guy single-handedly changes the course of games. Just look at this year... every hundred he's scored has been a masterclass. He's the one who's really made an impression on me by just being ****ing exciting and memorable.
Amla, KP, Cook, Clarke... only these four could probably stand favorably in comparison with former greats. This is assuming theyll continue to play at the same high level for many years to come, so its a big assumption but its the best we can do
Bowlers: Steyn. Thats all, even though i love anderson
