Summary

"Almost 2,500 people have played in Test cricket, from the inaugural Test 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 edition of 'The 100 Greatest Cricketers', experienced sportswriter and publisher Geoff Armstrong has compared eras, analysed career records, sifted through facts and fiction, all to come up with this list of the best players of all time, ranked from one to 100..." -- Back cover.
