Shame to see the competition coming to a close, it's been interesting seeing the results that have been coming up. I think it would be really interesting to get peoples reasoning as to why they voted the way they did.

Best I heard about viv was off micheal holding who said viv would hold every batting record going but he got to a hundred (usually quickly) then got bored would love to get bored smashing lillie and Thompson about ludicrous simply ludicrous

...except that it never really happened.

In 1975/76, when Lillee and Thomson were in full cry, Viv was reduced to mere mortality like the rest of the star studded West Indian batting line up.

Every one can have a bad series mate even viv was only human but if you listen to those bowlers they even say he was as destructive a player as has ever played the game

When Viv played for Queensland:



This is pretty illuminating too...Viv and Clive both have their say:



Having said all that, Viv, Clive Lloyd, Gordon Greenidge and Roy Fredricks were an unbelievable batting line up...simply unreal.

Liilie from what I have seen is in my top 5 quicks plus that was when thomo was at his quickest before the injury which from what I have heard he is rated as the quickest ever?

But it's great viewing top quality bowling against top quality batting just a shame for aus as that series gave Clive llyod the idea to play an all out pace attack and batsmen suffered for years to come thanks Australia ha
