From whom I've seen(TESTS only).....

Best cricketer: Tendulkar(Gotta give it to him for his consistency and longevity).

Best batsman: Richards

Best bowler: Imran Khan

Best fast bowler: Curtly Ambrose

Best spinner: Chandra, Deadly on Wickets with Purchase and bowled at medium pace speeds(nearly).

Best keeper: Jeff Dujon

Best keeper-batsman: Gilly

Best captain: Lloyd, a lot of people think that the W. Indies won inspite of Lloyd. It was Lloyd who invented the 4 pacer thing as a STRATEGY after the blackwash in 75 in Australia. And such dominance has never been seen, EVER again. After Lloyd retired under Richards, they didn't win nearly as much, with an attack that was better in some ways(Marshall, Ambrose, Bishop, Walsh/Patterson) were everybit the tandem of (Roberts, Holding, Garner, Croft/Clarke).

Best fielder(out) : Andrew Symonds

Best fielder(in) : Rhodes

Best fielder(slips) : M. Waugh

Best opener: Gavaskar

Best allrounder: Kapil

Best stroke player: Too varied and deserves more qualification.

Square Cut: Viswanath
On Drive: Lara/M Waugh
Straight Drive/Punch off the bowler: Tendulkar
Extra Cover Drive: Richards
Late Cut: Gavaskar
Flick off the pads: Tendulkar, Azharuddin
Square Drive(both sides): Laxman
Square Drive(off side): Ganguly
Pull/Sweep: Richards
Hook: Ponting(sadly this shot has disappeared from the game)
Best defensive player: Gavaskar, If you wanted a ball to drop dead even if it was near shoulder height this is the guy.

Most thrilling player to watch on song: Richards.

Most inventive: Tendulkar(his punch straigh back, upper dab over the slip cordon or the ungainly paddle, no one else plays them or played them before with such regularity).



24 needed with a bunny coming in at 11? No problem!
