    You should have a poll mate. Then again, I'm not sure the server can cope with 197 different options.

    Between Pietersen and Greig for me. I'd probably go for Pietersen though. Been top class for England, and he's still got a good few years left in him. Expecting him to finish his career as one of England's greats.

    The big difference between our countries is that over the years people have migrated to England voluntarily.

    This thread is a bit like one entitled "Australia's best batsman" IMO.

    Paul Parker or Derek Pringle, IMHO.

    Nah, most of the serious contenders have already been mentioned, but might chuck Dolly into the mix too. Missed his prime because of Apartheid (was nearly 35 by the time of his test debut) and still managed to maintain an average of over 40.

    I would rate Tony Greig above KP; incidentally they have both played 58 tests. D'Oliveira as mentioned above was potentially better than either of them if he had gotten an earlier start.

    Finally, a thread where Mike Garnham warrants a serious mention.

    I want to say KP because I genuinly believe he can end his career with 30 test centuries at an average of 50, but only if he bucks up real soon. Otherwise he may become another what if?- and that would be a terrible shame.
