    Do we vote under the assumption that ABDV retires now?

    How can we compare them as Richards and Pollock played too little test cricket and no odi or t20 cricket?

    I am going to wimp out totally and as I never saw Richards and Pollock as they were before my time I will say AB as I rate him higher than Kallis.

    Going on what I've heard anecdotally and read from former test players, it's Barry Richards for me.

    If I have pick kallis because at the start of his career he held a very poor SA batting lineup together with only real support coming from Gary Kirsten. AB has always been surrounded by some pretty good players.

    Personally would have included smith,kirsten and amla in this poll as well.

    Not worth a poll...... Kallis by some distance.
    Madness. Exhilarating. Magical. Netherlands have crossed the line in an unbelievable 13.5 overs.
    It's like watching a Gayle from each end. And when one Gayle gets out.. Another Gayle comes in...

    Yet Graeme Pollock seems to make more people's all-time world XIs than Kallis quite comfortably. So surprised to see the current count at Kallis 8 to Pollock's 2. Could well be a generational thing more than anything else.
