    Top cricketers non-discussion thread

    Simple rules. Just list your top cricketer in each category without explanation of your own and without commenting on anyone elses. Should be nothing in the thread but lists (or perhaps nothing at all if no one joins in).

    Opening Batsman - Jack Hobbs
    Middle Order Batsman - Don Bradman
    All Rounder - Garry Sobers
    Wicketkeeper - Alan Knott
    Fast Bowler - Dennis Lillee
    Spinner - Shane Warne

    All Rounder - Imran Khan
    Wicketkeeper - Jack Russell and Kamran Akmal

    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.
