    Headley
    Lara
    Sobers
    Richards

    Flirted with the notion of leaving Richards out for one of the three W's on the grounds that while his style of play was decades ahead of his time, his overall record is bettered by several others. Nah, I couldn't really buy that either.

    Screw being different:

    Headley
    Richards
    Lara
    Sobers

    An immensely strong 3-6, which can be measured by the class of the batsmen not even getting a look-in.

    I wanna pick Ramahdin, but the Windies dominated the best batting lineups of their day with 4 quicks and I can't imagine a spinner, even a good one, seeming like anything else than a respite for opposition batsmen.

    3. George Headley.
    4. Brian Lara.
    5. Viv Richards.
    6. Garry Sobers.
    7.
    8. Malcolm Marshall.
    9. Michael Holding.
    10. Curtly Ambrose.
    11. Joel Garner.


    Would have gone with Headley, Lara, Viv and Sobers for the four middle order batsmen anyway. And, I will go with Marshall, Holding, Ambrose and Garner for the four bowlers. With Sobers in there, I don't think its a necessity to go with a spinner. Gibbs was a great spinner but not great enough to dislodge any of those four fast bowlers.

    If necessary Sobers and Viv can turn their arms over a bit. Any of the great WI fastmen are so much greater than their spin counterparts that including a spinner (unless they of the Murali, Warne, Oreilly class) is pointless. Only thing I'd worry about is over rates.
    Cause Slifer said so.........!!!!

    Always pick a spinner. Lloyd's 4-man attack was actually relatively short-lived and would only have been played in the time period that it did. Doesn't really have a place in an All-Time side for my quid.

    I don't see why 4 x ATG Fast-Bowlers should offer any more advantages over 3 x ATG Fast-Bowlers. Especially as Sobers was farely quick when he wanted to be. Therefore, Gibbs gives the necessary added variety, and is also a match-winner on a turning track.

    These guys are good enoiugh to do well against anyone, anywhere on any track. Introducing a spinner into the mix doesnt make sense to me... Gibbs is great abd all, but he cannot replace Garner.
    Screw variety... 20 overs from a spinner would just give the oppposition some much needed respite from the brutality of the attack.
    Sobers is already in the team anyway... why do you need variety when that guy can pretty much play any role the team needs?

    Sobers was a better left-arm fast-medium than he was a slow left arm spinner.

    I'm going with Gibbs. Harsh on Garner.

    The four-pronged pace attack is a bit of a myth. The West Indian bowler from their great era with the highest win ratio (68% wins, 8% losses) is Roger Harper. I know he would have often been included against India, one of the weakest sides of the era, and often in a 5-man attack with someone like Baptiste playing, but that still suggests the spinner had a role to play and there's more to picking a side than just going with your best four bowlers.
