    In A League Of their Own

    In A League Of their Own

    Who would you pick for your All Time World XI? – it is a game we have all played, and which we can now play along with one hundred top players.

    Danish Kaneria???? Can he even spell Larwood correctly???? Just look at the criteria he uses to select Wes Hall and Larwood..........if they have Kaneria any where near the front page churning out his views on All Time XI players then the book is doomed.........

    He opened with Sobers and stuck Wasim Akram at seven. That's.. interesting.

    "5. Greg Chappell His Test record is nearly half as good as Bradman's, and Greg was so good that I find it difficult to believe that to be true"

    this sentence kinda blew my mind.

    SM on Cricsim conclusively proves the players themselves have no idea, so I don't find Kaneria's reasoning surprising at all.
