Revised and Updated
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.
Geoff Armstrong has thoroughly updated all the statistics in the book that have changed since its first successful release and two cricketers have failed to make the top 100. Out goes Herbie Taylor and in comes Graeme Smith. Out goes Andrew Flintoff on his retirement and in comes Kevin Pietersen. Andy Flower and Inzaman, hovering at 97 and 98 respectively, are also updated to acknowledge the form of Sangakkara and Yousuf. Other great moments are recognized such as Ricky Ponting's form during the 2009 Ashes series and Matthew Hayden's performance during the 2007 World Cup.
