    How did Kallis manage to get more votes than Grace, Hammond, Headley, and Pollock? Are people confusing this for the best cricketer after Bradman.

    Edit: Coronis, who is this "other" you speak of so highly?

    it's a bit of an ignorant statement though as others have pointed out already.

    I think a more accurate assessment might be that Lara is like Sobers without the wickets (and bowling variations). Similar batting styles.

    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

    Is sobers no:1 a genuine new member or a former member on a wind up, or perhaps having undergone a lobotomy.

    So it looks as though Sachin Tendulkar is the second best batsman after Bradman. This is a predictable shame because I'd much rather watch Lara or Sobers bat. Or even Viv Richards or Greg Chappell for that matter, provided that their respective on-drives are on song.

    Incidently, why has George Headley received no votes, yet Ponting and Kallis received 3 each? That makes no sense at all.
