    Awesome work as always Sean. I had Hutton (18), Headley (20), and Akram (21). I forgot about Gavaskar, which will probably end up being my biggest blunder.

    There's only one thing that can be said about your opinion of Kallis. You're wrong.

    one doubt aren't we ranking them based on number of people who voted or is it based on mean of their ranking they got ??

    accepting kallis as a great cricketer is one thing. but ranking him above gavaskar and oreilly is something else.

    Loving reading this at 9am with my morning coffee.


    One thing I have always wondered about Chappell is why did he miss the famous 1981 Ashes tour? Was he injured, or did he, like Sean wrote, decide to skip that tour? Was he mentally exhausted after the underarm incident?

    And like the fact that Hutton is ahead of Gavaskar, who scored many of his runs in bore draws.
    I have read a bio on him but I can't remember the exact reason. I think he had just started an Insurance business and wanted to concentrate on that, and as you said he also thought he was in need of a break
    You know it makes sense.

    So far Gavaskar (24) Chappell (23) Laker (21) Akram (20) Ponting (19) Headley (18) are the only players who have made the list.

    I can't really see anyone in my top 17 not being selected.

    In any poll of this type there's always a slight inate bias towards current players. If you did a music poll of this type the current XFactor (a bad UK reality show) winner would rank above Elvis Presley and The Beatles.
