    Nor do I, but the side needed an opener and I wanted Macartney to be godly at #3.

    West Indies all rounder XI
    1. Chris Gayle
    2. Frank Worrell
    3. Marlon Samuels
    4. Garry Sobers
    5. Clyde Walcott
    6. Collie Smith
    7. Gerry Gomez
    8. Learie Constantine
    9. Bernard Julien
    10. Roger Harper
    11. Malcolm Marshall

    Darren Bravo, Darren Sammy and Carl Hooper are all in with a shot and I think Carl Hooper really deserves a spot over Samuels but Marlon fits the need for a top order spot more so than Hooper. Let me know if you think I'm using the term all rounder too loosely with including Marshall.

    More I read about Barry Richards the more I believe that he deserves a spot on the first team with Hutton. Hobbs was without doubt the greatest opener, but was he one of the two best?

    Peers, past and present, talk about Barry Richards [Archive] - Indian Cricket Fans

    The ones that stands out to me the most is Hutton and Lillee.
    Aus. XI
    Simpson^ | Hayden | Bradman | Chappell^ | Ponting | Border* | Gilchrist+ | Davidson3 | Warne4^ | Lillee1 | McGrath2


    W.I. XI

    Gooch and Lillee nail it - he made batting look so simple unlike, for example, Geoffrey Boycott, who made it look decidedly tricky, or Viv Richards, who made it look like you had to be a very special sort of human being to do it well

    Barry Richards is a top contender for an All-time First Class XI for sure....

    Hutton, Hobbs, Gavaskar, Hayden, Greenidge, Smith, Trumper, Sutcliffe and Sehwag achieved a lot lot more in test cricket than him and should always be considered before him in any test XI.

    After four tests - the length of Barry's career - Gavaskar had a superior record than Barry

    The man who achieved the most while batting in test cricket placed Barry Richards as the best right handed opener he had ever seen, better than Hobbs, Hutton and Sunny. The teammates at Hampshire who saw Greenidge and Barry bat together thought Barry was obviously better. Show respect for a genius, friend, especially when other genius stands up to salute him. The majority of greats wouldn't go shooting their mouths off for the sake of a fella who hadn't played test cricket if that fella wasn't in the best-of-the-best category. Barry is in the same class, if not above, Sunny, Hutton and Hobbs. That is not a subjective opinion, i.e. it's not XBox v PS. .
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.
