    Couple of my top 10 in there, had Miller at 5 and Barnes at 6, rest of my top 10 will almost certainly be in the final list.

    Looks like none of the three W's is going to make into the top 50 which is a bit of a shame and no place for Wilfred Rhodes either, he will likely the highest man on my list that did not make it.

    Gilchrist, Mcgrath, Ambrose and Murali were all between the numbers 10-20 for me.

    Good list. Felt Botham should be a bit lower, but all of them (IMO) are worthy of the top 20 at least.

    Be interesting to see if there is a wildcard in the top 10.

    Nice list, though am quite surprised that Miller, Murali and McGrath weren't higher tbh.

    Warne
    Hobbs
    Imran Khan
    Hadlee

    That would give me 24 out of the 25 I chose being in the Top 50
    I'm guessing the list of top ten will be (in order):


    Bradman
    Sobers
    Hobbs
    Marshall
    Imran
    Tendulkar
    Viv Richards
    Hadlee
    Warne

    Grace will be top 5 easily IMO. Reckon he'll slot in at 3 behind Bradman and Sobers.

    Yea, probably should be. I think some may have put him in the top three, while others may have left him out all together if they don't like voting for players of that era, so that might hurt him.

    How I'm thinking. Mind you, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe most people do think he's gun.

    Curtley Ambrose at 19 is a travesty. Should be much, much higher (no prizes that I was the guy who voted him at #2)

    I had Botham (23), Ambrose (22), Gilchrist (25), Hammond (10), Lilee (9), Lara (12), Murali (14), and Barnes (17).

    My guess at the top 5:

    Bradman
    Sobers
    Grace
    Hobbs
    Richards

    On the face of it. But who of those above him would not be equally unlucky to be so low? I put Ambrose ahead of McGrath personally but by the finest of margins, I don't know whether Lillee is a better bowler than Curtly, but to my mind he's a 'greater' one. :shrug: Gilly was better in his field than Curtly, Lara and Hammond are equals in their pantheon and Barnes and Murali are freaks.

    I'd put Ambrose ahead of McGrath and Lillee. As much as I rate McGrath and Lillee's bowling, Ambrose was nearly the perfect fast bowler for me.

    I'd also put him ahead of Gilchrist as there were are both better batsmen and better keepers than Gilly. Obviously, the combination is ground-breaking, but I don't feel he lead the field in either discipline enough to be considered ahead of the all-time greats of either batting or bowling. I certainly don't begrudge Gilly being in there though.

    Barnes. Arguable. I prefer Ambrose as I've seen him play and he's one of the best I've seen. Its hard to assess what you've seen behind anecdotal and statistical evidence I guess.

    Murali... Well... My personal preference is to Ambrose, but I can certainly understand him being higher in the list.
