    Slater's bowling was 4 before the Laxman Test. It's 10 now. Plus that hardly counts does it ?!

    1 Botham - batting, bowling and a great fielder
    2 Gary Sobers
    3 Richard Hadlee

    I don't think there has been a better all-rounder than Sobers, Hadlee, Laker & Botham are all hall of famers, but they still didn't have the class of Sobers.

    Laker?!?!?!?!?

    He has a Test batting average of 14.8! Hardly an allrounder.............

    I assume it is a typo or just a mistake, though.

    You're right Neil. Botham was a great slip catcher. If he was playing now he'd be the best slip fielder in the world (after Jonty Rhodes, of course!)

    shame nobody else misses Waughs bowling days

    Keith Miller and Kallis are both great TRUE alrounders, alot of others were weaker in either bowling or batting
