    1. Bradman
    2. Kallis
    3. Sobers
    4. Tendulkar
    5. Dravid
    6. Ponting
    7. Hutton
    8. Hobbs
    9. Gavaskar
    10. Waugh
    11. Chappell
    12. Hammond
    13. Border
    14. Lara
    15. Sangakkara
    16. Sutcliffe
    17. Barrington
    18. Richards
    19. Pollock
    20. Weekes
    21. Miandad
    22. Headley
    23. Chanderpaul
    24. Inzamam
    This is a good list although I can't imagine Kallis coming in at number 2 since DoG places a lot of emphasis on runs coming in victories Lara and Richards would be higher

    Bradman
    Sobers
    Lara
    Richards
    Ponting
    Tendulkar
    Dravid
    Inzy
    Hobbs
    Headley

    to round out the top 10

    Next up would be Chanders, Weekes, Border and Pollock. In no particular order.

    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

    24. Shivnarine Chanderpaul (West Indies) (1994-present day)



    Career Length (Days): 6943
    Percentage of team's matches played: 78%
    Career Average: 51.81
    Adjusted career average: 49.84
    Adjusted away average: 45.38
    Adjusted top-opposition average: 49.80
    Top Tier centuries: 8 (rank 7=)
    Second tier centuries: 3
    Third tier centuries: 12
    Significant innings: 39
    Significant innings per match: 0.26

    Great innings: 3
    3rd Test: West Indies v India at Bridgetown, Mar 27-31, 1997 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo 16.35
    1st Test: Australia v West Indies at Brisbane, Nov 23-25, 2000 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo 14.05
    1st Test: West Indies v Australia at Georgetown, Apr 10-13, 2003 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo 15.87


    Innings worth average: 3.61

    25 Test peak adjusted average: 68.98 (2007-2010)
    50 Test peak adjusted average: 64.18 (2006-present day)

    Quality Points: 566
    Career Points: 100
    Peak Points: 138
    TOTAL POINTS: 805


    A modern-day George Headley, Chanderpaul has the classic stats of a great batsman in a struggling team, i.e. a high innings worth average, but a low percentage of significant innings per match. At age 38, he is still in his peak period, and it would be nice to see him contributing to some West Indian wins in the next year or so as the team itself seems to be much stronger and more unified than in recent years.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
