    For sheer elegance or poetry in motion amongst batsmen David Gower who took grace to the height of divinty.As a pure entertainer amongst batsmen Adam Gilchrist who could set a stadium on fire.For pure genius as a batsmen Brian Lara and as a bowler Wasim Akram.However as a cricketer overall it was Gary Sobers who had all-round cricketing ability of mythical proportions taking cricketing art to another height.

    Spot on analysis and full agreement on the players.
    I saw Sobers in the 73 tour of England— a wonderful batsman.
    Over all the time I have watched cricket (nearly fifty years) no one approached the grace of Gower. A beautiful player to watch.

    While you see quite a few left handers who belong to the elite club of batsman, Wasim Akram is the only left armer who belongs to the elite club of bowlers.

    When it comes to batting then Lara and Sobers. Sobers was the best batting all-rounder of all-time. Kallis is the second best batting all-rounder.

    Gilchrist is the best wicket-keeper batsman of all-time and he was left-handed.

    Imran Khan is the best bowling all-rounder of all-time.

    When it comes to bowling then Wasim Akram. Lots of left-hand bowlers these days. However, Akram was the best I have seen. Davidson was good too.

    Mitch Johnson is also not a great. So overrated! Could only deliver on bouncy tracks. Starc is a better left arm bowler than him.

    Sanga is so underestimated its barely believable. Gilly smashed 150 in a world. Wasim won u guys a world cup in an over. But lara in rhythm was beyond human. He invoked awe. Test matches, against the greatest ever austalian side on his own,stringing partnerships with the tail against mightiest of odds when he was fading , for me nothing bigger has been accomplished on a pitch.
