    The best three are probably Bobby Simpson, Walter Hammond and Mark Waugh. Not necessarily in that order.

    I'm certain we did this fairly recently, but anyway Junior Waugh was the best I ever saw. Graeme Hick top notch too, huge old mitts he has.

    Beefy very good too, although I missed his absolute peak. His back probs affected him in his later career.

    Of current players....Hmm....Freddie?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    yeh in the present day flintoff is pretty damn good, there was one against the west indies when giles was bowling in one of the tests last year that stands out in my mind, although there indeed have been many other outstanding catches by fred

    I read that "when Bobby Simpson had to dive, you can bet your bottom dollar no one else would have seen it".

    Impossible for the first 2 to be rated so highly, they played far too early in the centruy to have been challenged.

    Mark Waugh is the best Ive seen, no doubt

    Shane Warne? I think Fleming is better than him

    That drop thnat Warne did in the recent series vs NZ was a crack up, he ran all the way up to the bowler (Kaspa?) to give him a tip on how to bowl then ran back and dumped a simple chance ha ha ha ha ha ha

    If scorer kept a record of dropped catches we would have more of an idea who really is the best. From the guys i have seen Mark Waugh, Taylor and Brain McMillian were the best.

    One current players Freddie, Warne and Fleming are pretty even, they all take some good ones and drop some easier ones.
