    I think quite a few people do. I certainly enjoy these lists. Keep them coming D.O.G.

    ha ha, tbh, the fc list is a bit like garbage because like i said before it doesn't take into account strength of bowling opposition.

    My test ratings are much more clearly defined.
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan


    Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood

    Stats showing the first class record of each player vs. each opponent are available from cricketarchive.

    Clearly this takes a long time to compile, so saying something like that is just mean.

    What's stopping you - lack of time?

    Yes, lack of time right now.

    Plus do they have the bowling and batting RPW for each side in county cricket in each decade? Without that, the ratings would not that good.
