    heard vaguly abt Amar Singh and Md Nissar .... Merchant was one of the gr8 but don't know if he has played more tests .... C K Naidu would be a regular fixture in any all time X1, if we were to go by the legend

    why not make a X1 from those who have played like 20 tests

    All Time World XI:

    1. Jack Hobbs
    2. Sunil Gavaskar
    3. Donald Bradman
    4. Sachin Tendulkar
    5. Garry Sobers
    6. Vivian Richards
    7. Adam Gilchrist
    8. Imran Khan/Keith Miller
    9. Shane Warne
    10. Malcom Marshall
    11. Glenn McGrath


    You've got an amazing top five that'll put up huge scores. Your next two can also score big but can also hit 200 from 100 balls or bail the top order out. Imran Khan and Keith MIller are more than adequete as the bowling all rounder.

    You have a batting lineup of Hobbs, Gavaskar, Bradman, Tendulkar, Sobers, Richards, Gilchrist....try getting them out twice. And for bowling you'll have Marshall, McGrath, Khan and Warne, with Sobers only bowling for changeup/as needed.

    I could also have Barnes in there.

    Because I think this is a better XI. Only one I left out that I wanted is Hazare...I really wanted to pick him. In fact, I'm going to go change my mind and pick him.

    Hazare was legendry too ... and why not C K Naidu?

    did a search on Amar Singh and found the one below

    Amar Singh

    if he is the one in your 11 then I don't know how you picked him .... 7 games, 28 wkts .... is there a footage to see how good he was in those 7 games? .... and we don't know how consistent he would hv been if he had played more games, he might just hv had a few good games and i don't see any 10 wkts haul by him in a game

    Today's Australian XI, off the top of my head:

    Ponsford
    Trumper
    Bradman
    Chappell
    Harvey
    Miller
    Gilchrist
    Warne
    Lindwall
    O'Reilly
    Lillee

    Always find the bowling difficult with McGrath, Davidson and Spofforth missing out this time, next time it could be something totally different.

    For old Indian players, it is impossible to go by Test stats. They never got the chance to play enough Tests. I am going by what he did in England and the views of contemporaries. Obviously, I'd rather have the performances at the Test level to back it up, but in the case of Indian pace bowling, there are scarce pickings. Len Hutton once said that 'there is no better bowler in the world than Amar Singh', and that's really good enough for me. Many English players like Hammond were also very complimentary.

    His first class stats for 1932 domestic season in England included 111 wickets at 20. And his overall FC stats (keeping in mind the relatively weak Indian FC structure at the time) are even better: a bowling average of 18 from 92 matches with over five hundred wickets. But he had fantastic success in England too, which didn't have a weak domestic competition. To lead the charts with so many good players around in England at the time is quite the accomplishment.

    He was possibly better than Amar Singh - he was certainly faster. His FC record is also superior to Amar Singh and together, they really were the stars of the Indian team when it first got Test status. Nayudu claimed he was faster than even Larwood, though that was probably just an exaggeration, it was still the case that many of the great batsman of the time were beaten for sheer pace when facing him.

    I have a great photo of him somewhere with the off stump cartwheeling. Ill look for it.

    He was certainly rapid.

    Any reason why you'd have Ponting at 3 ahead of Bradman?
