    "Critically Acclaimed"

    These players will not make an all-time XI but they are good players and have their place in history secured as they are critically acclaimed. Whether it be due to their style or originality, their impact and legacy is greater than their skill.

    Ill start with Gower and Abbas. Good production but great aesthetics

    Bernard Bosanquet. A decent Test and FC record but guaranteed immortality as the creator of the googly.

    Shoaib Akhtar/Jeff Thompson/Typhoon Tyson as the fastest bowlers of all time.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Maurice Tate - in my opinion the least lauded of the truly great bowlers of all time. Should be in every short list of the three greatest medium pacers of all time.

    Gundappa Vishwanath surely belongs to the list.

    Tiger Pataudi always seems rated quite highly compared to his very ordinary stats; I don't know if it is justified or not.

    Poor old Shock did sod all apart from taking the blame from historians for controversies that were nothing to do with him, for example using a bat that was wider than the stumps.

    I have read (Mote?) that it was not 'the' Shock White who did this but another White, but most of the time they give it as Shock White, but it was a long time ago
