    Pretty sure it'll be Headley.

    The original street-fighter, Javed Miandad was one of the main reasons Pakistan was the only team to keep the West Indies honest in the 1980s. Javed's record reads as being solid without being truly outstanding. Even though his 50 test peak was in the 1980s, which many people think of as a very difficult era for batsmen, his average is actually adjusted downwards by 6% due to a large amount of runs made against the Indian bowling attacks of that era. The "bore draws" of that era also don't help his significant innings per match stat.

    Miandad, not someone I often think of, but when I do he always impresses me.

    Pakistan's greatest batsman and a real street fighter. There is no doubt that he gave Pakistan the ability to compete and would always be willing to grind it out
    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

    Had a much longer career (in terms of years) though.

    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.

    I think Headley will be higher, his career length in terms of time will outweigh the fact that he only played 22 Tests.

    I hope Inzi is next because to put it not so bluntly, I think he is the worst batsman remaining. Not that there is anything wrong with being the 21st batsman in the history of Test Cricket.

    What if Viv Richards comes up next? After all his stats alone are not great, except 40+ avg in all four innings but that is not part of DOG's equation.

    Inzy should have been below Miandad as well IMO. At least that is what pretty much all observers of Pakistan cricket will tell you.

    true

    however, having watched Viv bat I can't imagine a top 10 list without him (hard to imagine even a top 5 list without him)

    Those great innings by Javed were all against mediocre attacks . His two hundreds in the West Indies seem more impressive.
