    I think there'll sooner be another Bradman than another Warne. - Gidgeon Haigh

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler ever produced in this entire world - Muttiah Muralidaran

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler of all time - Glenn McGrath


    In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham

    Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.
    And is the greatest bowler I have ever laid eyes on. - Brian Lara

    Opening Batsman: Smith
    Middle Order: Tendulkar
    All Rounder: Kallis
    Wicket-keeper: Gilchrist
    Fast Bowler: McGrath
    Spinner: Muralitharan

    Cook and Steyn serious contenders to finish up on the list by the time they retire.
