    Butcher was added at 96 and it appears as though McGlew is now in the top 85.

    Nurse really was an awesome bat, wasn't he, 4 great innings is superb.

    I am starting to think that the West Indies of the 1960s would have been a match for Lloyd's team, at least batting-wise.

    Sobers, Kanhai, Nurse, Butcher - all in the top 100
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan


    Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood

    You are also forgetting Conrad Hunte and I would say they were the better batting line up. No contest bowling wise, though Hall, Griffith, Gibbs, Sobers and briefly Gilchrist were quite potent.
    Aus. XI
    Simpson^ | Hayden | Bradman | Chappell^ | Ponting | Border* | Gilchrist+ | Davidson3 | Warne4^ | Lillee1 | McGrath2


    W.I. XI
    Greenidge | Hunte | Richards^ | Headley* | Lara^ | Sobers5^ | Walcott+ | Marshall1 | Ambrose2 | Holding3 | Garner4

    S.A. XI
    Richards^ | Smith*^ | Amla | Pollock | Kallis5^ | Nourse | Waite+ | Procter3 | Steyn1 | Tayfield4 | Donald2

    Eng. XI
    Hobbs | Hutton*^ | Hammond^ | Compton | Barrington | Botham5^ | Knott | Trueman1 | Laker4 | Larwood2 | Barnes3

    Yeah, Hunte is no.119 on my list.

    1963 West Indies - When Hall, Griffith and Sobers were all at their bowling peaks, would make the 1963 team at least on a similar level to the 1984 West Indies.

    Samaraweera cracking through top 90 is a bit high for me, his career peak probably playing a major role in this

    Tellingly, his average has been adjusted downwards further than any other batsmen in the top 100, with the exception of Paynter, who only played 20 matches.

    I never realised Cullinan's record was so solid, he's only ever talked about in relation to Warne for some reason.

    I wonder where Shaun Pollock will come? Bleacher Report has him in South Africa's top 5: 5 Greatest South African Batsmen of All Time | Bleacher Report
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Ponsford, Redpath, and presumably Lawry in front of Arthur Morris. Nice.

    Redpath's great innings:

    63 vs. India at Chennai 1969 (14.69)
    5th Test: India v Australia at Chennai, Dec 24-28, 1969 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
    171 vs. England at Perth 1970 (13.82)
    2nd Test: Australia v England at Perth, Dec 11-16, 1970 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
    159 vs. New Zealand at Auckland 1974 (14.96)
    3rd Test: New Zealand v Australia at Auckland, Mar 22-24, 1974 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    The match against New Zealand also featured a great knock by Dougeh Walters in the first dig. Without those two innings, New Zealand might have won their first series against Australia.
