So who for you is the greatest ever cricketer,Im sure you will agree that it's a very tough decision to make,And i'm very interested in your answers on this matter.I think the best way to do this would be to give your greatest ever batsman and then bowler and then all-rounder,I think this is the best way to give your thoughts,Thanks for your time.

Although I never saw him play it would have to be Donald Bradman although Tendulkar is perhaps the best of the modern age. The best I have ever seen when it comes to English players though is Graeme Hick, although given time Kevin Pietersen will overtake him.

Bowler wise would say someone like Richard Hadlee, and all rounder Ian Botham

hi.i choose sachin as the great batsmen not be cause i am a big fan of him but that guy has been consistent for over 2 decades now.i never saw sir don play so i couldnt really choose him.my all time greatest bowler is macgrath.ask any batsmen in the world and everyone respect the bowling of macgrath.again i never saw the likes of hadlee,imran and kapil bowl.so all my views r based on players i have seen.all time great all rounder,i would go with freddy flintoff.there may be many great all rounders but i choose him because he terrorise batsmen when he bowls and the bowlers when he bats.such a lethal combination.

Hello,Jonie! Three greatest cricketer of the world be,in my opinion,Sachin Tendulkar(great batsman),Murlitheran(great bowler)and Imran Khan( great(alrounder)Of them Sachin and Murlitheran are yet to go miles ahead as is apparent from their present form.thanx.

I think Sir Donald Bradman played most of his matches against England but still you cant really remove the title from him.Sachin also ranks alongside him.But the surprise would be Gavaskar who played against the greatest , fearsome fast bowlers of all time with the likes of Andy Roberts , Michael Holding , Joel Garner & Malcolm Marshall.At those times there were no helmets & playing against the Windies & scoring runs was the toughest task at those times.I therefore rate Sunil Gavaskar high in the greatest batsman's list. Batsman. 1.Bradman 2.Tendulkar 3.Gavaskar Bowlers. 1.Warne 2.McGrath,Murali,Lillee 3.Anil Kumble Allrounders. 1.Richard Hadlee,Ian Botham ,Kapil Dev , Imran Khan 2. 3.
