Flintoff and Botham must be very high up on our ladder of greats as they perfomed so well when under great pressure in Ashes series ( as did Steve Waugh)
We have left out the mighty Viv Richards aaaargh !( Not to mention Keith Miller and Ted Dexter)
I must admit that the best I ever saw ( and I have been going to the Sydney Cricket Ground since 1951) was Sobers
I went to school and played cricket with Dave Renneberg so I popped out to the SCG to see my old mate bowl for NSW to Sobers . The master had arrived to show the lads from NSW just how to play the game . He scored 130 amazing runs. So fleet footed was he that he could change his mind from a forward shot to defence against fast bowling as the ball was coming down and still hit it for 4.
If I never was another game of cricket after that I would have loved the game for life
