    Garry Sobers v Imran Khan,Test Cricket:Poll

    Basically I know that people who rate Imran higher are in the minority but from comments in other threads, not as small a minority as I first thought. Would want to know just how significant this group is.

    I'm definitely part of it.

    Request mods not to merge with a previous thread, if it exists, as people might have changed their opinions, and I want a fresh poll.

    No irrelevant option for the sake of accuracy.

    Where is the poll????
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    You have created a tough poll. I am a massive Imran fanboy. Rate him only second to Bradman.

    Tough choice as Sobers and Imran have very little in common other than the all-rounder tag. Sobers the greatest batting all-rounder of all time. Imran the greatest bowling all-rounder of all time.

    The batting of Khan roughly cancels out the bowling impact of Sobers. Khan doesn't quite make my top five greatest bowlers of all time. Sobers is unquestionably in my top three batsman of all time. Sobers would also be the only player of the two I would select in my All Time XI.

    Adding the impact of a number of other intangible aspects I would rate Sobers higher. But still a very tough comparison.

    I do admire the respect that smalishah84 has for Imran. A quick post history check reveals 398 mentions of Imran in only 2,856 posts. That is impressive.

    I reckon BhupinderSingh probably mentioned Imran in about 90% of his posts.

    Anyway, it's definitely Imran for me. I think he's the greatest Test cricket in the history of the game, so it was a bit of a no-brainer for me.
