    Averaging 60 over (effectively) a four year period is not a remarkable feat for mine. Straight up not a fan of picking players who were "unfortunate not to play more Tests" in an exercise like this unless they played in an era where Tests were not unanimously considered the ultimate test of a player's skill. He's close anyway but I don't think he demonstrated the proven longevity of performance that someone like Taylor did. I understand most will disagree though, and that's fine.

    Yeh, fair enough.

    I'd generally agree with you. But the stories told about Barry Richards and Graeme Pollock are amazing. At the moment I'd have G.Pollock in my all time world test XI at #4, and B. Richards isn't far off displacing Sunny.

    He's certainly making a case for it. Won't be able to ignore him if he ever hits 30 test centuries.

    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.

    Kallis
    Pollock
    Nourse

    In that order. All three favoured batting at number four, but Kallis has batted a considerable amount at number 3 as well, which Pollock and Nourse didn't - Nourse played just two innings at first drop and Pollock never played there at all.

    The way I see this side shaping up, Kallis will be the sixth bowler (and what a sixth bowler to have!) meaning he can devote the majority of his energy to batting, so having him at number three seems reasonable.

    Personall cannot rate Pollock ahead of (in order) Tendulkar, Headley, Lara, Chappell, Ponting or Hammond. Played on about four years in a strong team and managed to miss all of the great Aussie bowlers, didn't play againts the Indian Spinner or the Windies pacers at all. Also unlike Richards didn't get to perform in WSC and didn't perform that well for the Rest of the World Teams. Similar career in length and performance to Colin Croft (who doesn't get the credit he is due).

    Akram is just the most over rated player in cricket.

    Back on topic.

    Agree that Amla by the time he is done will take over one of these positions.
