    Whom does Imran Khan rate as the greatest cricketers he has played against?

    I'm not very sure but in an interview 2 years ago, he rates Viv Richards and Sunil Gavaskar as the 2 greatest cricketers he has played against.

    Does anyone know the actual answer?

    Sir Viv Richards

    Last year during the India-England series, he was in England and in an interview he listed his 3 greatest cricketers

    Greatest batsman: Sir Viv Richards
    Greatest Captain: Sir Ian Chappel
    Greatest Bowler: Michael Holding, Malcolm Marshall


    But in general he refers to Sir Viv as the greatest cricketer he ever saw and played against.

    according to the documentary made on Imran in 92 he said that the two best batsmen he ever faced were Viv and Gavaskar.

    Viv had the best attack and Gavaskar was the best pacer of his innings as well as most solid defence
    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

    About fast bowlers, he lists Holding, Marshall and Lillee as the best he saw, but said that Holding gets the edge as he was the most natural talent. Interesting choice since most peers dont rate Holding that highly...

    I do actually believe that Holding had the most 'superb/natural' bowling action.
    I haven't seen any other such smooth action apart from Asif or McGrath - who were medium-fast.

    Question asked and answered. Really no reason for this thread to stay open.
