    Cricket Web All Time World XI

    As a follow on from battle of the cricketers why don't we vote for a All Time World XI. Each day a different spot will be open for voting and whoever gets the most votes gains selection. I think we will start with a test side and then depending on how it goes we can do ODI's afterwards.

    There will be no criteria on whether the side needs 2 genuine openers 1 all rounder, 1 spinner and 3 quicks etc. It will be up to each member to decide on who they want to fill each position. (although lets aim for the best balanced side possible please)

    Ok so to start off we might as well begin with number 1 in the batting order (ie the first opener).

    Voting will run until this time tomorrow.

    Sunny Gavaskar

    Averaged 51 over 120 Test Matches. Moreover, averaged an astonishing 65 against the West Indies who, during his career, fielded some of the best quicks of all time. Fabulous player; fabulous temperament.

    Holy crap - yeah I agree, looking at his stats, he was awesome. Would have played on uncovered pitches too, I guess.

    I think Jack Hobbs 61,237 first-class runs and 197 centuries as well as a test average of 56.94 over 61 tests beats Gavaskar

    Hobbs is one of the strongest competitors (along with Sobers, imo) for the best batsman after Bradman, and is a no-brainer in an all-time XI for me. So, Jack Hobbs. Second opening spot is a tossup between Gavaskar and one or two others.

    It would have to be Hobbs but I would put Gavaskar second in batting line-up

    Some people are not making their votes clear. Can you make sure when you are posting that you clearly state who you are voting for.
