    Overall World 11s from respectable Media sources

    Found this great website which looks at top 10 most respectable media sources such as Wisden, Cricinfo etc and compares their World 11s.
    Overall came out:
    1) Hobbs
    2) Gavaskar
    3) Bradman
    4) Tendulkar
    5) Viv Richards
    6) Sobers
    7) Gilchrist
    8) Imran Khan
    9) Warne
    10) Marshall
    11) Mcgrath

    Very interesting. Bradman was in all 10, with Tendulkar and Sobers featuring in 9.
    One change I would make Lara for Viv Richards.

    No way Lara ahead of Tendulkar. Comparing Lara to SRT -Exactly what would we base judgement on? Over-all average in Test cricket? Over-all average in ODI's? Number of centuries in Tests? Number of centuries in ODI's? Average and centuries against an unbelievable Australia team? Away averages?

    Plus the fact Tendulkar is the most consistent player ever in terms of averages above 40 in every single country he played in. If he had a normal career i.e 23 years old till 35 years old he would of averaged a stupid number! 54 average over 200 tests, only Bradman I feel would average so high after so many Tests. Plus the insanse bowling attacks he faced, list of bowlers he regularly played against is mouth watering.
    He was also a person who if he gets out in a home match the crowd goes home lol !! (Bradman praised Tendulkar saying he is the closest thing to himself, who are we to argue haha)

    Hadlee was close in consideration, interesting debate over him and Imran Khan.
    Warne v Murali was close as well. Do feel Muralis action costs him from being ahead of Warne in World 11s.
    Not much mention of Waqar Younus anywhere even on this forum..why is that? Wouldnt say he is a world 11 player but not far off.


    Only players playing at the minute who I believe have the possible potential to make World 11s 1 day are Kohli and Steyn

    I mention Waqar a lot. I loved watching Waqar at his best, just that peak wasn't long enough really. Amazing bowler with those toe crushing late inswinging yorkers though. Delightful to watch.

    Waqar is my favourite bowler ever and I got into cricket because of him. He also happens to be Usain Bolt's favourite cricketer as well.

    Exactly what would we base judgment on to select Lara over Richards..

    John Snow's team probably has the most astute bowling attack that I've seen;

    01. Sunil Gavaskar
    02. Barry Richards
    03. Donald Bradman
    04. Viv Richards
    05. Graeme Pollock
    06. Garfield Sobers
    07. Alan Knott
    08. Richard Hadlee
    09. Shane Warne
    10. Dennis Lillee
    11. Glenn McGrath

    that is an amazing bowling attack indeed. But they won't do that well in Pak I reckon
    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

    Sadly, they wouldn't need to worry about that if they played today.
