    Sir Viv voted the Greatest ODI Player

    Viv Richards has been crowned the greatest one-day cricketer ever by a jury of 50 eminent players, commentators and writers assembled by the Cricket Monthly.

    Nicely done. However, Murali not making it to the top 5 an anomaly for me.

    Good top 5. Hard to argue with Viv. WAG

    I'd love to watch Viv bat in todays era with the powerplays, fielding restrictions and bats of today. Would be some sight.

    I'm guessing that was why he was so popular here a few years back

    Dhoni and Gilchrist (especially) do not deserve to be in the top 5 list in the first place.

    At least they got the #1 pick right.

    The number 1, 2, and 3 match the CW top 3 odi players of all time too
    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

    No issues with the top 3. Nice to see Viv get his due recognition even in light of the new batsman friendly era of odi cricket.
