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

    Bangladesh - Bashar, Tamim probably soon
    Nourse over G Pollock, Richards & Kallis? huh?

    Also, don't buy into the myth that Grace was actually that great a batsman. Everyone knows umpires never gave him out and he never walked

    Sounds like the perfect combination of strengths to me.

    Woah, never heard of him before this. Some seriously high praise from Sobers and Worrell.

    Who's the best Welsh batsman? All their Test players I can think of were bowlers, or Geriant Jones.

    Hes considered one of the greatest cricketers to never have played a test match, and looking at the amazing praise he recieved from Sobers, Worrell, he must have been truly remarkable

    As long as they were eligible for selection for the particular country at any point during their careers I guess

    Would like to hear why some people consider Gavaskar>Tendulkar. Tendulkar has achieved more than Gavaskar did against equally good attacks, for a longer period of time, with far more flair while not compromising on his defense either. I dont think its outrageous to put Gavaskar ahead of him but id genuinely like to hear the reasoning behind it because i personally cant really think of any concrete ones

    Similar for de Silva over Sanga as well

    Lara is probably the most underrated All time great ever.

    I would put him as the best batsmen of all time after Bradman factoring in the entertainment value and sheer domination of spin. Easily the most exciting batsmen ever. The most frustrating part about Lara is that he actually under achieved, half the time his mind was really not up for it. When on song, I doubt there is a batsmen in history that could match his domination apart from Viv, but Lara was more exciting to watch than Viv.
