For those of you who cant watch Channel 4 in the UK, Richie Benaud is compiling (or probably already has, just keeping us all on tenterhooks!!!!)an all time greatest XI team.
His critea is based on the team HE would like to play for him, based on talent, entertainment.
His team is contructed as follows:
2 openers, 3 middle order batsmen,2 allrounders a wicketkeeper and 3 bowlers (presumably 1 spinner and 2 quicks)
so far he has chosen as follows:
1 Jack Hobbs
2 Sunil Gavaskar
3 Don Bradman
4 Viv Richards
5 Sachin Tendulkar
His allrounders are to be chosen from Botham,Hadlee,Dev,Imran,Sobers and Miller
His keepers are from Healy,Gilchrist and Marsh
Dont know who the bowlers will be.
These types of things normally start a bit of discussion.
For me the allrounders have to be Botham and Sobers and keeper probably Healy
