Features

Richie Benaud, the legendary former Australian captain, has named his World XI of the 20th century. Jack Hobbs and Sunil Gavaskar, who scored 34 Test centuries for India, open the batting for a team that is made up of four Australians, two West Indians, two Indians, two Englishmen, and one player from Pakistan.

Don Bradman makes an appearance at No. 3, followed by Sachin Tendulkar, who is one of three cricketers in the team still playing international cricket, at No.3 and Viv Richards at No. 4. Pakistan's Imran Khan and the West Indian Garfield Sobers are the two allrounders in the side. Australia's Adam Gilchrist is the side's wicketkeeper, batting at No. 8. Shane Warne squeezes into the side, somewhat controversially, ahead of Muttiah Muralitharan and the many great spinners of yester-years as the side's only specialist spinner.

Sydney Barnes, who remains the only man to be picked for England while playing league and minor cricket, is one of two specialist fast bowlers in the squad. The other, obviously, is Dennis Lillee!

Although there are many notable exceptions from the World XI, and many will wonder why their favorite players are not among the eleven, one should keep this in mind - these are still great players. And the DVD has rare archive footage of these players that any cricket lover will thoroughly enjoy.

Benaud also gets credit for not including himself in the side. As a legspinning allrounder, he took 248 Test wickets at an average of 27.03 in 63 Tests and retired as Australia's leading wicket-taker at the time.

DVD Extras:

  • 15 minute feature - Richie Benaud - A Life in Cricket.
  • 20 minute player profiles montage, including facts & stats.
