    Best Batting Line up you can think of

    Not sure if CC was planning this or not? But thought this would compliment his thread.

    You should include six batsman and a WK, one of your batsman may be an AR, I know that will give you 12 players (when combined with CCs 5 but I don't think that is the idea of the exercise)

    Bradman
    WG Grace
    Hobbs
    Hammond
    Viv Richards
    Keith Miller (ar)
    Les Ames
    You know it makes sense.

    Purely just off the top of my head. Looks pretty good though.

    Anyway, Sachin is in my avatar, I'm an Indian supporter, and I don't recall ever saying I preferred Lara over Sachin. I've generally said I can't split them, but I prefer Sachin's compactness and beautiful stroke-range than Lara's flashy ones, particularly in the team I made where I've got a few aggressive bats in Viv, Gilly and arguably Greenidge.

    Lara and Sachin are my two fav batsmen I've ever watched, but I reckon Viv would have been my all-time fav had I got to see more of him.

    You stole my team, except Richards for Chappell. I know you want to be just like me, so I'll forgive you.

    Heavy on West Indians, but is only fair with some legends in that middle order.
