    Top 10 Batsmen and Bowlers of All Time

    While we are waiting for DoG's top 10, who do we rank as our top 10 batsmen ever and in what order. While we are at it, lets name the bowlers as well.

    This should help pass the time until the DoG reveal.

    W.I. XI

    Hasn't this been done to death already? Find it odd how you guys can debate the same things over and over again.

    01. Sir Donald Bradman
    02. Sir I.V.A. Richards
    03. Sir Jack Hobbs
    04. Sir Garfield Sobers
    05. Sachin Tendulkar
    06. Brian Lara
    07. George Headley
    08. Sir Leonard Hutton
    09. Graeme Pollock
    10. Greg Chappell

    01. Malcolm Marshall
    02. Glenn McGrath
    03. Shane Warne
    04. Muttiah Muralitharan
    05. Curtly Ambrose
    06. Dennis Lillee
    07. Fred Trueman
    08. William O'Reilly
    09. Michael Holding
    10. Imran Khan

    Two notes; 1) for the batsmen, for me five through seven are virtually tied, with the other three not far behind at all, they are all so very close and not much in it at all from two to ten. 2) None of the bowlers are knighted, seems to be a batsman bias there.

    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
