'You will look very silly said Mr Salteena with a dry laugh.
Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'
I am going with Graeme Pollock - One of the most accomplished, attacking "see-the-ball-hit-the-ball" batsmen ever. He held the record for the highest List A score of 222 from 1974-2002. At the age of 50, in 1994/95 playing in a memorial one-day game for the World XI vs Bradman XI, he scored 89 off 71 deliveries. Slots in at number 4.
- Viv Richards
- Graeme Pollock

Watch this innings from the 43 year old Pollock against an Australian side featuring Terry Alderman and Rodney Hogg
After looking at 37 Drafts In recent years it is apparent that Blakus has been the unoffocial 'Draft King' of Crickweb with 5 wins all up. His nearest rival is Pothas with 4 wins.
So far in this Draft Blakus has selected Bradman and SF Barnes, while Pothas has selected Sobers and Dhoni, making them about even.
Torn between two picks here, but arguably the first facilitates the second so I'll grab Mike Procter please.
21k runs at 36 in FC cricket stack up favourably with many a Test #7, or makes him a seriously gun #8, while he took 1400 wickets at less than 20 each.
Regarded as a very quick scorer in List A cricket, and had an economy rate of just over 3, which is impressive even considering the era in which he played. His unorthodox bowling would apply very well to T20 IMO. Like a far, far better version of Sohail Tanvir.
I'm honestly very surprised that one of the very best all format cricketers of recent times hasn't been picked yet. Don't know whether people don't rate him as highly as I do or he's just slipped under the radar in this thread somehow but he'd have been one of my early picks, maybe second. Actually performed and proved himself in all three formats, so deserves a pick over some of the old timers who might or might not have succeeded in the shorter format.
