    Even though Bashar was prettier, I reckon even Shakib is better, and Tamim is easily ahead. Longevity is all well and good but it's clear imo who the better batsmen are.

    Haha I'm not a Territorian, just living here at the moment. FTR Damian Martyn and Mathew Sinclair are both born here, so Marto the best NT Cricketer.

    This could actually turn into a bit of an exercise, I've definitely missed a few Caribbean countries:

    Antigua - Viv Richards
    Australia - Don Bradman
    Bangladesh - Tamim Iqbal
    Barbados - Garry Sobers
    Egypt - John Traicos
    England - Jack Hobbs
    Guyana - Shivnarine Chanderpaul
    Hong Kong - Dermot Reeve
    India - Sachin Tendulkar
    Ireland - Eoin Morgan
    Italy - Ted Dexter
    Jamaica - Lawrence Rowe
    Kenya - Steve Tikolo
    New Zealand - Martin Crowe
    Pakistan - Javed Miandad
    Panama - George Headley
    Papau New Guinea - Geraint Jones
    Scotland - Archie Jackson
    South Africa - Graeme Pollock
    Sri Lanka - Kumar Sangakkara
    Trinadad and Tobago - Brian Lara
    USA - Ken Weekes
    Zambia - Phil Edmonds
    Zimbabwe - Andy Flower

    Throughout history the best batsmen have usually been Australian.

    Portugal - Moises Henriques
    Denmark - Ole Mortensen

    Edit: misread title, Ole was a bowler. Maybe Freddie Klokker.

    Dick Westcott vs Moises Henriques is a battle of the ages for the best Portugal bat - I'm rooting for dick.
