    PS: Dont agree with Headley as opener...he never really opened and played in the 30s/40s....And Worrell vs Kanhai is a toughie...Kanhai was most definately a superior batsman but Worrell brought the captiancy skill to the equation....
    As per Garner...i dont contest his inclusion too much....just that i would think that a quality spinner(and Gibbs was arguably the best off spinner before Murali came along) would make the team overall better.....the WI already have the best depth ever in pace bowling..

    But you're entitled to your opinion.
    Agreed...That was a shocking NZ greatest team made up from someone who obviously no very little about NZ cricket.

    No doubt morrison is one of the wettest characters in New Zealand. Probably 2nd only to Gavin Larsen (who incidentally would fit in better in the Girl Guides than in the commentary box).

    12th men: The Strangs

    I guess most of you won't know who Peter Rawson is. I don't know much about him myself but I know he was a good bowler, he had a first-class bowling average of 23 and he was a quick.

    Neil Johnson? His test record is poor. Maybe for ODIs?
    I picked Price ahead of Stang because I think that over time he would have become better than him. Strang was better with the bat but I think it balances the team more, five bats three allrounders three bowlers

    Bob Simpson(capt)
    Don Bradman
    Greg Chappell
    Allan Border
    Keith Miller
    Adam Gillchrist(wkt)
    Ray Lindwall
    Shane Warne
    Denis Lillee
    Glenn McGrath
    Barnes
    Ponsford
    Bradman
    Harvey
    Greg Chappell
    Miller
    Davidson
    Oldfield
    Lindwall
    Lillee
    Orielly


    Davidson to lend variety to the attack. His 186 test wickets came at just over 20 runs each. Plus he could bat and was a superb fielder.

    Unfortunately, all the great spinners were leg spinners. Leaving out Warne, Grimmett is no joke but someone has to be left out. I was tempted to include two legspinners but opted for variety.

    Monty Noble was a possibility with his off spin and competent batting. But...

    Its never a perfect jb. Next time I make one, I will probably chose a couple of different players, a McCabe for example and the one and only Trumper. But then thats what chosing an all time side is all about. Who are we to tell who was better over a hundred years. Its just a relaxing pastime and a charming way to express your love for the game.

    CC I thought you were a stats man...how can Kanhai have been a superior batsman when his average is lower!!!!!

    However Kanhai was indeed a great, but quite overlooked batsman. He played for my old cricket team as a pro when I was a kid,and was a class above,even at the age of 49 or something he broke alsorts of records,and that aint in some crappy league either
    rave down, hit the ground
