    Slip cordons with the greatest collection of cricketers

    At one point, Australia had Gilchrist, Warne, Ponting and Hayden (IIRC) as their slip cordon... Is that the greatest collection of great cricketers ever assembled in a slip cordon??????

    It's got to be up there. In their prime, what was the Windies slip cordon?

    Pretty hard to go past that. Who had the worst (proper teams)? Recent times Pakistan had Akmal, Butt and Farhat alongside each other (when Younis Khan was out of the picture).

    .....true

    Actually that is not the best slip cordon that HB mentions.

    The best slip cordon had

    Tubby Taylor, Mark Waugh, and Shane Warne has to be the BEST EVER slip cordon.
    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

    All excellent players, but I'd give the edge to Australia.

    To be honest and this may be harsh to Windies but i have to go for the Aussie cordon, the main reason for this was i was only a whippersnapper when the Windies were ruling the 80's and didn't watch them as closely as i would have done had i been older and wiser.

    lol.. I am not talking about the best slippers per se, guys..


    I am just asking who were the best "collection" of cricketers to have stood together in the slip cordon for their team at least for some time.. And that is why I included the keeper too there.. The Aussie cordon of Gilchrist, Warne, Ponting and Hayden are 4 ATGs and 2 or maybe even 3 almost certainities to at least belong in the discussion for an AT XI...


    India's had, at one point, More, Sachin, Azhar and Kapil Dev. And in recent times, Dhoni, Dravid, Laxman and Sehwag seems a pretty neat collection as well, as does Dhoni, Sachin, Laxman and Dravid when Sachin is ok enough to stand at the slips..

    I meant from that perspective.. Not based on the actual players' skills in the slips.


    Do remember once Ambrose fielding in the slips for the Windies for a series quite regularly.

    Lillee's was against NZ I think.

    They put the field in so a pic could be taken for a book he was writing, iirc.
