Sobers started in 1954! He played until 1974.Did Sobers play enough in the 70's to qualify?
Being born in the 80's it is slightly 70's is probably before my time.Would probably slot him in to the 60's if anything.
Feel free to contribute mate. The more the merrier!
Does Graeme Pollock qualify?Alrighty, I'd say this round is pretty much set in stone.

What's happening jle101, you haven't had an emergency callup to the squad in the WI have you.Absolutely yes.
A trip to the Caribbean has always been on my bucket list but I think the ship sailed many years ago on me making it there as a cricketer!What's happening jle101, you haven't had an emergency callup to the squad in the WI have you.
I reckon G. Chappell is in but you will have to canvas more voters or make an executive decision on the other batsman because at the moment we have 5 different nominations.
A couple of Englishmen for those positions.A trip to the Caribbean has always been on my bucket list but I think the ship sailed many years ago on me making it there as a cricketer!
Continuing on then, let's now select an OPENING BATSMAN to partner Sunny at the top of the order, as well as a WICKETKEEPER.
Barry Richards and Dennis Lillee for me but I only started watching cricket from 78, so I got to look back to work out best from 70's and personally I am including South Africans even bannded by ICC as I saw guys like Barry Richards in World Series Cricket, which best standard Tests there would have even been.In that Case I'd nominate:
Sunil Gavaskar (IND)
Jeff Thomson (AUS)
