Who would be your top 10 greatest Asian cricketers?
Mine would be in order
1)Murali - statistically the best,record holder for most wickets in tests and ODIs @ a very good average.
2)Sachin/Imran Khan - former holds most major batting records + most test wins for an Asian,latter is a WC winning captain + Asia's best all-rounder
4)Kapil Dev-WC winning captain and most successful Asian fast bowler in terms of wickets
5)Wasim Akram-400+test wickets and 500+ ODI wickets
6)Gavaskar-10k+runs,arguably best Asian batsman
7)Dravid-same as Gavaskar
8)Waqar-350+ test wickets and 400+ODI wickets
9)Jayawardene-closing in on 10k test runs
10)Kumble-600+test wickets and 300+ODI wickets
Notable omissions - Aravinda,Sangakkara,Sehwag,Fazal Mahmood,Abdul Qadir,Jayasuriya and more..............

Shall try to compile a list which allows me to leave Gavaskar out tbh. Not a fan, great player though.

Will throw Lord Jardine of Mumbai's hat into the ring too.

3. Muttiah Muralitharan
4. Sunil Gavaskar
5. Wasim Akram
6. Kapil Dev
7. Waqar Younis
8. Javed Miandad
9. Rahul Dravid
10. Vijay Merchant
A veritable plethora of genuinely great cricketers all there or thereabouts and unlucky to miss out.
