Probably biased, but Imran for me. When you talk about cricketers as a whole, great ARís weigh heavily in my book. Thatís why I also consider Sobers to be the greatest cricketer ever. Imran was all-time great bowler (his injury free peak is mind boggling) and a more than handy bat. He performed like a champ against arguably the greatest team in cricket history (at worst, the WI side of the Ď80ís belongs in the top 3 discussion). He also excelled facing his countryís arch rivals India, and I donít need to emphasize the incredible pressure of a Pak/India series. Add to all that his great Captaincy skills, and I think he edges out the other greats listed on the poll.
