    No Graeme Pollock? Pollock and Richards dished out a 5-0 drubbing to australia in their own back yard, Pollock was devastating. Those who played in his era have stated that he was possible the greatest left handed batsman who lived.

    I’m not sure who runs this site but maybe they’re not qualified.
    No Pollock!!!
    And I don’t use explanation marks loosely.
    You have to be kidding.
    I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume it was just an over site.
    He was neck & neck with Sobers as the greatest left hander of all time and in the best ten batsman of all time.

    I think its a suitable classfication. But don’t u think its pity to list Gilchrist instead of the legendry, sanath jayasuriya. If the list classifier omit this mistake, then certainly it will be the a matchless classification.

  4. Harsh Agarwalno s says:

    Maira S, you should, in all sincerity, be spanked.

    1. Graeme Pollock is missing.
    2. Arthur Morris is missing.
    3. In bowlers, you haven’t taken account of spin bowlers. For eg. Bishan Singh Bedi, Derek Underwood and Hedley Verity should be the first names on the list after Wasim Akram and Alan Davidson.
    4. Bruce Reid is missing.
