    Wisden's Cricketers of the Century

    Sir Donald Bradman
    Sir Garfield Sobers
    Sir Jack Hobbs
    Shane Warne
    Sir Vivian Richards

    Do you all agree with Wisden's choices for their five cricketers of the century or should someone else be in that list?

    Warne is one of the greatest bowlers ever & his record speaks for himself. So I reckon that he deserves to be on that list.

    Though Tendulkars acheivements would of been worthy (especially his ODI record) of selection too.

    CW is a place to talk about cricket and to read other peoples opinions.

    That list was made a few years ago, but it was to do with who Wisden thought were the greatest cricketers of the century, not who is currently (at the time of the list being published) playing well; so its still relevant to talk about it.
