    OK, first step is to nominate 64 people.

    Have everybody do your work for you and then you run the thing. Pure management material.

    Javed Miandad - IMO Pakistan's greatest Batsman

    http://content-aus.cricinfo.com/****...yer/40879.html

    Warnakulasuriya Patabendige Ushantha Joseph Chaminda Vaas - If not for his bowling, but surely his name

    Thanks.

    PS. Not that this will be a problem, but we should get at least five people from each country (i.e Bangladesh).

    India/Pak have been playing cricket the longest, and Pak has probably had the most talent, so it doesn't have to be even, but each country should be represented.

    I had a short look for Aravinder De Silva (sp?) and couldn't find him for 2 reasons. A) I had no idea there were so many De Silva's that have played cricket either for Sri-Lanka or in SL 1st Class

    B) See A

    Sorry wont go into giving cricinfo pages.

    Some from India -

    Vijay Hazare
    Vijay Merchant
    Amar Singh
    G Vishwanath
    Kapil Dev
    Gavaskar
    Tendulkar
    Kumble
    Dravid

    Some from Pakistan -

    Hanif Md.
    Imran Khan
    Javed Miandad
    Wasim Akram
    Waqar Younis
    Inzamam

    Sri Lanka -

    Aravinda De Silva
    Vaas
    Murali

    Bangladesh - none.

    I don't think we should necessarily include any from Bangladesh if they don't deserve it. The best should be there and there are many players from India and Pakistan who would stake a claim before any Bangladeshis.
