I have great admiration for (particularly) the likes of Grace, Goddard and Imran, but they wouldn't get anywhere near my favourite eleven personally as I've got a lot more personal joy out of watching and following players live.
EDIT: Three rather than two if you mean Nick rather than Denis.

Always has to be Lara for me, absolute legend.
Ponting followed by Prior I reckon.
Admire Smith in terms of grittiness but he's not someone I'd pay to watch really.
#J.Hobbs; #L.Hutton; #D.Bradman; #V.Richards; #G.Sobers; #A.Border; #A.Gilchrist; #K.Miller; #I.Khan; #S.Warne; #M.Marshall;

Les Favell seems to be very popular and charismatic, wish I knew more about the man.

Originally Spoken by Brendon McCullum
You have got to earn the right to be aggressive.
Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)

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
