Headley would have been my second choice and to me are the two best we have produced. What Headley did to prop up that woeful team is just amazing and what video I have seen from him, he was just magical.
Why Viv is number one for me? Faced the best bowlers of them all and just didn't milk them or rotate the strike, he destroyed and demoralised them, making it easier for those to come after him. From 1976 to the very early '80's and including WSC, it's hard to belive that there has ever been a better batsman, especially considering the conditions, pitches and bowlers he faced.
There is a reason Lara is the prince, there can only be one King and he was the Master Blaster.

And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
ponting , ok.
then wher is dravid ? steve ? worrel ? border ? barrington ? weekes? miandad ...........................
and NO RANJI and TRUMPER
I don't have an opinion on who is number 2. Just being in the argument is a sign of greatness and there are, IMO, no right or wrong answers.
If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

Except trumper... He probably should have been mentioned.
Also I find it a travesty that Headley has no votes. Feel guilty voting for Tendulkar now.
