    I've actually never heard of anyone that rates Garry above Viv so there you go!


    Splitting hairs really
    Geoff Boycott is one for a start. Pretty positive he's categorically stated Sobers is the best batsman he's ever seen & I do refer to batting alone.

    I cant actually remember any of the play as I was pretty young and more concerned with chucking a ball around with some other bored kids

    I remember the match at the SCG because my Dad made me sit there and watch Sobers bat

    One full toss later and I was off

    Sobers used to coach at an indoor cricket centre in Mt Waverley n Melbourne

    One day the Victorian squad came in and he had a bat against them (including Ian Callen who opened the bowling for Oz)

    Both his knees were ****ed, no thigh pad, had been retired for years and he slaughtered them

    Privilege to get to see genius so close up
