    I agree with most of this. However I c'ant understand why you'd have Harvey above Steve Waugh!

    Always up for a bit of this:

    Batsmen:
    1. Don Bradman
    2. Greg Chappell
    3. Victor Trumper
    4. Ricky Ponting
    5. Alan Border
    6. Steve Waugh
    7. Neil Harvey
    8. Stan McCabe
    9. Matthew Hayden
    10. Arthur Morris

    Hill, Macartney, Ponsford, Simpson, Walters, Gilchrist all pretty stiff to miss out.

    Bowlers:
    1. Shane Warne
    2. Glenn McGrath
    3. Dennis Lillee
    4. Bill O’Reilly
    5. Ray Lindwall
    6. Fred Spofforth
    7. Alan Davidson
    8. Keith Miller
    9. Charlie Turner
    10. Clarrie Grimmett

    As always, you could swap a lot of those around and it wouldn’t make much difference. Trumble, Johnston and Benaud probably the unluckiest to miss out.

    The Age is runnning the 'Cricketer's top 25' at the moment (better named Bradman and the next 24).

    The greatest of all time? Our cricketers decide - The Age - Melbourne

    The Results so far:


    The players value 'leadership', 'good bloke' etc more highly than outsiders in general.

    Miller Comes in at 5:
    In praise of the, ahem, all-rounder - Chapelli - The Age - Melbourne

    Richie rated higher than I would have expected.

    Still have Lillee, Warne, Bradman and Gilchrist to come, I guess.

    fair to assume that the older generation don't look too favourably on the recent players onfield behaviours.
