    Your ATG team without Bradman or Sobers

    I reckon Bradman and Sobers are the unanimous picks in everyone's ATG teams. Some people prefer Murali over Warne, or vice versa, and some people don't pick Marshall, preferring other quicks. Most people have Hobbs, but not everyone does.

    I think every serious ATG team I've seen contain Bradman and Sobers though. So my question is: what's your ATG team without Bradman and Sobers? And why?

    It's an interesting question, because number 3 and the batting all-rounder are interesting spots. Some might put Botham at #6, but others might think his batting isn't enough. So do we look at Kallis?


    *bear with me people who don't like ATG stuff. I'm having a quiet day at work!

    Been a trend recently that people have started picking Knott over Gilchrist, which I find to be flat out wrong

    I kind of find the trend of everyone picking Gilchrist wrong when there is so little between him and Knott
