    I'm just a bit puzzled by your screen name Slifer. It says School Boy/Girl Cricketer. Are you a boy or a girl?! I'm sorry I'm just curious.

    Not funny. Anyway Im a youth (aka young man ) from the islands who happens to be in the U.S. studying Air Traffic Management. Cricket is just a way out from the pressures of school.

    Good lists there. I'd be inclined to rate Hadlee and Lillee slightly higher, and maybe look at including Trueman and Tendulkar, but aside from that I generally agree.

    Pollock (G) should probably be in most top 5's in batting of all time.

    No Warne in top ten and even "unlucky to miss out" list... Is it a joke?
