Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since December 2009
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.
Graeme Pollock, Dudley Nourse and Jacques Kallis
Going to go for:
Jacques Kallis, Graeme Pollock, and Dudley Nourse.
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.
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.
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.
