    Keith Miller, Shane Warne, Ian Botham, SF Barnes and Viv Richards. Aiming for a lot of steak, beer and general cricket-related craic.

    The problem will be to get Barnes to open his mouth and to get Both to shut his

    I'd have Don Bradman and Jack Fingleton on one side of the table

    ... and Douglas Jardine and Harold Larwood on the other

    I'd obviously be at one end of the table, and I'd have my old friend Ian Chappell at the other

    There'd be plenty of English ale for the drinking of but the food may not be up to much as I'd need Burgey and Mr Z as chefs - not knocking their culinary abilities as I know nowt about them but, as I'm going to be judge and jury, both sides will need to be legally represented - might be best to get Tony Greig to deliver a pizza

    I would love to have Sachin come for dinner. Have always wondered what is going on inside the politically correct exterior of his. What did he feel about the match fixing episode and the other controversies like Sydney and the Denness issue.

    I am pretty sure we will remain forever in the dark about his side of the events as I don't see him publishing a tell all book.

    Good job you remembered to put it at the front of his name then.

    It certainly would as I would invoke the cab rank principle and Burgey would have to represent Lol and the Iron Duke leaving Mr Z with the Don and Fingo as clients

    5 people? Hmmm.. Considering my favourites, would invite the following:

    Jack Hobbs
    Harold Larwood
    Don Bradman
    Victor Trumper
    Malcolm Marshall

    If I really want entertainment though I'd go with (Ian) Chappell, Boycott, Warne, Viv Richards and Ranatunga.

    Very nearly created a thread similar to this in OT after a discussion with my History teacher, didn't get round to it as I didn't get onto a computer.
    For me I have no idea right at this moment. Graeme Swann would be there for sure.

    Warne
    Marrshall
    Botham
    Sobers
    Miller

    I'm more interested in a few drinks and a good time - the cricket is a by-product
