The 100 Greatest Cricketers

More than 3000 men have appeared in test cricket, from the inaugural test played in March 1877 to today.

To reduce this list to the best 100 worldwide, is an imposing task, but it is also one that is guaranteed to provide an argument amongst those with an eye for the game's history and its greatest players.

For this revised and fully updated fourth edition of the 100 Greatest Cricketers, experienced sportswriter Geoff Armstrong has compared eras, analysed career records, sifted through fact and fiction, all to come up with this list of the best players of all time.
