English cricket has become delusional.

all brand watches All this Ashes success has created a feel good haze that is seriously clouding the judgement of even respected experts.cheap watches To mark its 150th anniversary the Wisden Cricketers' Almanack has chosen the best World XI of all time and overweighted it with Englishmen.best replica watches Most embarrassing is the selection of Alan Knott ahead of Adam Gilchrist as wicket-keeper.cheap watches And Australia’s most charismatic fast bowler, Dennis Lillee,  missed out to a pace attack of Malcolm Marshall, Wasim Akram and Syd Barnes from a century ago, who is widely regarded as England’s finest bowler.high quality replica watches Knott may have been a beautifully soft-gloved keeper and lovable eccentric with an odd batting style but he cannot hold a candle to Gilchrist as a cricketer.
All this high-minded piffle about Knott being the best pure wicket-keeper ignores Gilchrist’s destructive qualities as a brutal game-changing batsman.

And the raw figures do nothing to back up the claim that Knott’s glove work was so superior it discounted Gilchrist’s standing as one of the game’s great all-rounders.In 95 Tests Knott claimed 250 catches and 19 stumpings. In 96 Tests Gilchrist once held the world record for dismissals with 379 catches and 37 stumpings.And their batting just does not compare. Knott averaged 33 while Gilchrist averaged 48, but it was the ferocious way Gilchrist scored his runs which made him such an important player.He had a strike rate of 82 runs per hundred balls, far better than any other Australian who scored 1000 runs or more.As a comparison Bradman had a strike rate of 58 while Ricky Ponting and Matthew Hayden have strike rates of 60.
Unlucky All-Time XI
After the Wisden Cricketer's Almanack released their all-time World XI, we take a look at some of the crickters who could feel a bit hard done by not making the cut.
Named captain of Wisden’s World XI, Bradman was one of just two Australians in the side along with Shane Warne,England’s WG Grace and Jack Hobbs, the finest batsmen of their eras, were paired as opening batsmen.West Indies provide three players, Viv Richards, Garfield Sobers, the game’s greatest all-rounder, and Marshall, arguably the most skilful genuine fast bowler of all time.Hobbs, Bradman, Richards, Sobers and Warne were Wisden's five players of the 20th Century, which was chosen in 2000.
