    I almost voted for the Windies but Bradman should prove the difference
    You know it makes sense.

    I still haven't voted, and not sure I will. Really can't decide between Australia and West Indies, and I think England are well in the mix as well.

    I voted for australia because they have had two great dominant eras, Bradmans invincables and the current one now. West Indies have only had one in the 80s.
    Bradman is very good but he couldn't make the australian team invincible all by himself so there must be quality players around + todays eras lot and they would beat th west indies.

    Please provide feedback so we can finalize the squads and get this going!
    Walsh over Roberts and that squad is set.

    I watched them both and thought Roberts clearly the better bowler, and a much better bat. He was mean as well; he would often bowl a quick bouncer which the batsman would smash to the boundary. He would then bowl a much quicker bouncer that cleaned up quite a few batsman, including Hooksey and Both

    I agree with that BUT that would be the main reason I would have Walsh over Roberts as Roberts had a tendency to the temperamental which against such an aussie batting lineup means they could carve him up.

    Pakistan wouldn't have a chance against West Indies or Australia......the only thing Pakistan have going for them really is a good pace attack....batting wise, I don't think Pakistan compares to any of WI, AUs or Eng.

    As for Pakistan beating England quite easily, are you mad ??? England have the better batsmen and their fast bowling pool is every bit as good as Pakistan with the likes of Trueman, Tyson, Snow, Bedser, Larwood et al

    In fact I'd rate India as having produced better batsmen than Pakistan.
    Pakistan simply don't have the all round quality to be ranked in the top 3 of all time sides.

    coming back to cricket why do you think qadir belongs in the pantheon of great spinners? make a case that'll put him on par with oreilly, grimmett, laker, warne and murali!
    Agreed. Qadir I always felt was a bit overrated even if he did have a fair amount of success at home.

    What would be Pakistan's best lineup of all time ? I'll take a stab ......

    Saeed Anwar
    Hanif Mohammad (wk) understand Hanif kept wicket as well.
    Javed Miandad
    Zaheer Abbas
    Inzi
    Mohammad Yousuf
    Imran Khan
    Wasim Akram
    Saqlain
    Qadir
    Waqar Younis

    Fazal mahmood (12th Man)

    Excellent pace attack but gee I dunno.....I think that batting lineup lacks the class of others......

    The spin dept was decent although I don't think Saqlain in tests was as great as a lot of Pakistanis make him out to be Quadir was bit overrated.

    So really its only the pace attack that's the shining light for this team....
    Pakistan were great in 1 dept (pace) and merely decent (batting and spin)in two others.
    Australia were great in all three and the West Indies/England/South Africa in 2 (batting and pace) and decent in spin.

    Agree with everything you've said in your assessments.
