    Which player would you wish to see reincarnate?

    I would like if Graham Gooch reincarnates. Too bad he was before my time, but i have seen some of his batting high lights and i really like his batting style, I would love to see him bat today

    SF Barnes for me. Love to see him in action just to find out exactly what he bowled.

    Of all the players to play the game, the one you'd like to see back playing International cricket is Graham Gooch? Interesting choice to say the least, especially when there's so much footage of him available. I'd personally go for players from eras with either very little, or no tv footage. So I'm thinking Sir Don Bradman, WG Grace, Frank Tyson, Sir Jack Hobbs, Victor Trumper, Sydney Barnes, Clarrie Grimmett, GA Lohmann, and George Headley. Would love to have seen those guys play live.

    WG the most interesting candidate IMO.

    Agreed - but Ranji, Trumper and Barnes, in that order, not far behind

    Actually, Malcolm Marshall's a good call too. 41 is just too criminally young to go.

    I think modern rules and pitches may just kill the whole aura of greatness that some of these players amassed.

    If I have to pick, I'd like to see Trumper and Wes Hall. Round 2 of Marshall wouldn't be the worst thing to see either.

    As an Indian it's got to be Ranji though I doubt he would be able to play the modern game without becoming in effect a completely different player. So what I would really like is high-quality video footage from that era. Or even better a time machine that would let me spend a quiet afternoon at a 19th century county game.

    I have to say I found Graham Gooch a hilarious choice though to each his own taste I guess.

    Yes, because he was before my time and i really didn't see him batting live ever, except maybe the 92 world cup final.

    Bradman, for the sole reason of putting an end to the "how good would he be in modern times" discussions you find on every cricket site/message board.

    Bradman easily. Annoys me to no end that in a sport i follow so much I will never be able to see the best player.
