    You can rank yours differently if you choose - I consider gold tier any player who is an automatic selection for their nation's XI and/or not look out of place in someone's dream team.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Making a S/L or N.Z team or Indian bowling spot is not exactly that difficult a proposition. But I accept youe point.

    Yeah I was about to say - I think Bomb's criteria has to have some form of caveat attached to it.

    Blokes like Vettori, Vaas, Ian Smith etc etc etc clearly can't be counted as gold.

    To be quite honest on the W.I, Aus and S.A teams followed by England and Pakistan are that difficult to make it into. Weekes, Ponting, Lindwall and Garner/Roberts would individually make it into any other team but the two.

    Not quite sure what you're implying there but if I read it correctly (any of these would get into any AT team apart from the other 2 in the 3 you name) I say you're wrong.
