Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0575064536, Hardcover)

The question of who is, or has been, the greatest batsman or the greatest bowler causes lively debate in cricketing circles. Before the introduction of world Test ratings in 1987, no one had attempted to provide considered answers to this question, yet such unofficial titles have been prized among players and regularly bestowed by colleagues and commentators. Drawing on contemporary reports, the testimony of players and the statistical verdict of the Coopers & Lybrand computer program, this book explores the changing landscape of cricket from 1800 to 1996, and nominates from each era the players who emerge as the most deserving of such an honour.
