    CricketWeb decides the Greatest Players Post World War I

    There have been a hundred years since WWI so we ought to pick and rank the greatest in that time span. Yay, more incessant arguing and more lists! Let's show Wisden how it's done since their list was frankly bollocks.

    Think we should first compile a short list of over 50 players. Any one who gets over 3 votes will be added to it. The total number on the list is up for debate but I'm thinking 50 as per ankitj's suggestion. No Ian Harvey pl0x.
    trundler isn't annoying at all. He's quality. -TJB
    Yea trundler is the new Bijed. Good addition. - Zorax

    England:
    Hobbs, Sutcliffe, Hammond, Hutton, Compton, Truman, Botham, Boycott, Barrington, Larwood, Laker, Knott

    West Indies:
    Sobers, Worrell, Viv, Marshall, Lloyd, Headley, Holding, Garner, Lara, Ambrose, Walsh, Hunte

    South Africa:

    Dudley Nourse, Graeme Smith, Graeme Pollock, Shaun Pollock, Proctor, Barry Richards, Tayfield, Steyn, Donald, Adcock

    India:

    Tendulkar, Dev, Gavaskar, Vishwanath, Bedi, Dravid, Laxman, Kumble

    Pakistan:

    Imran, Miandad, Hanif, Wasim, Waqar, Inzimam, Fazal

    New Zealand:

    This thread is in response to some Wisden list innit?

    So, we're allowing players which debuted before WWI?

    We should include their cricket played before WW1 as well, if we weren't already. Maybe we were.

    Even so, Trumper and Barnes

    I am but a humble vessel for what the good people of CW want. If that's the prevailing opinion then so be it. I made it post war since it's been a hundred years since then.

    In any case we mustn't stray into the 19th century as that is incomparable to the modern era and really deserves to gauged separately.
