    I would definitely like to see Barnes play. Let's see what he would do on today's flat pitches
    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

    Bradman, Larwood, Miller, Oldfield

    Tough to leave out Lindwall and Davidson.

    Larwood vs Tendulkar, Steyn vs Bradman and Oldfield keeping to Johnson would be ITSTL.

    Everyone.

    OK, my four are - Sydney Barnes, Don Bradman, Greame Pollock, Bill O'Reilly

    Reasons (in that order) - Most unique bowler based on all that we've heard, Greatest batsman of all time, Beautifully uncomplicated technique, Attacking leg spinner who could apparently bowl at a good pace.

    1) Fiery Fred,
    2) Richard Hadlee,
    3) Sydney Barnes and
    4) Harold Larwood

    If allowed a fifth option, I'd go for Alec Bedser.

    Barnes and Trumper, mainly to see just how good they really were.

    Apart from the obvious "want to see the best" Bradman/Marshall etc... O'Reilly would be quality viewing and Viv with modern bats would be carnage.

    I'll choose Keith Miller, Sobers, Kapil and Hadlee.

    Bradman. Don't reckon he would be as good in the current era as he was back then.
