    Finally an easy choice. Bradman comfortably but it will be interesting to see who gets the other batting spots.

    Voted for Sobers just to buck the trend lol.

    WTF is Sobers doing as a number three option anyway? I always thought he was a number 6.

    I include all the players who could bat in the middle order for all three spots (3, 4, 5) to give them an equal chance of making the side. Sobers will also be included in the allrounder poll (6).

    OMG this is a tough one! I'd like to play devil's advocate but it has to be Bradman (Sobers battled lower down for a lot of his career, as did Sachin and Lara)
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....

    IMO, it's a disgrace it's not 100%.

    Just to add a little spice

    Would anyone change their vote if they knew the match was to be played on a wet pitch
    You know it makes sense.
