    Australia - Bradman
    England - Hutton
    South Africa - Richards
    India - Tendulkar
    West Indies - Sobers
    Pakistan - Miandad
    Sri Lanka - Jayawardene
    New Zealand - Crowe
    Zimbabwe - Flower
    Bangladesh - Tamim

    Interesting exercise - only really stumbled over South Africa and whether Graeme Pollock was the right choice

    Not sure, I think in his old age he's got him mixed up with Ted Dexter.

    I agree with this with the exceptions of Jack Hobbs, Herbie Taylor and Kumar Sangakkara for England, SA and Sri Lanka, respectively.

    Also can pick Headley over Sobers on a different day.

    You think Jayawardene is better than Sangakkara too? It's a bit of a weird one. How come?

    Haha, I independently noticed and edited the minute before this post.

    I personally don't rate Jayawardene particularly highly actually, in this relative context. Sangakkara conclusively better, for mine.

    I actually picked Headley initially as you quoted but 1) Sobers/Headley has always been a bit of a Merchant for me. 2) Quoting Fred's post and making four changes was a bit far.

    I knew Sanga's stats were better than Jaya's but hadn't realised just how much - just went on instinct and what I've seen which is as an Englishman, so pleased to see that Sanga averages 35 against us and Jaya 60 - that's what convinced me!

    Mahela's as bad as Sehwag when the ball starts to swing though. Sanga over the last few years has played some really great innings overseas too.
    Mahela is just about the most overrated batsman of the generation imo... just because he's classical and elegant most people dont criticize his away record as much as they do, say Sehwag's. He's failed repeatedly everywhere except the SC
