Reviews

Cricket commentator Richie Benaud, once 1950s captain of the Australian cricket team and now known as the 'voice of cricket', selects his greatest ever cricket team using the 'Greatest XI' concept. From a starting line-up of 33 cricket legends, he whittles the list of players down to his final, all-important XI, illustrating his argument with match footage. Players such as Sunil Gavaskar, Don Bradman, Greg Chappell, Viv Richards, Brian Lara, Imran Khan, Ian Botham, Gary Sobers and Shane Warne are in the running - but who will make it onto Benaud's dream team?

Picking the greatest cricketers of the last century is not an easy task, but deciding who you would employ for this post is much easier in comparison. Richie Benaud is the ideal candidate to take on the role as he has played the game and also commentated on it in a long lifespan in cricket. He was also one of the greats himself as a player. It is easy to forget how great a player he was and this is due to his immense contributions to broadcasting. Richie is knowledgeable, likable and his influence is unmatched. Often dubbed the voice of cricket, he is also the face of cricket as well. He has been part of the international scene since 1953, and has attended more tests than anyone else.

Richie picks his team and gives his reasons in an interview which lasts one hour forty minutes. The interview is long and insightful and the enthusiastic Mark Nicholas acts as the interviewer. During the interview Richie also chooses two back up players for each eventual player in the side. He comments on the back up players and tells us why he left them out of the eventual Xl. There is player coverage and the video footage is excellent especially that of Bradman, Hobbs and Hutton. This is good insight for anyone who hasn't seen these early 20th century players before. We get to see the statistics of the players he chooses in terms of wickets and runs scored. The countdown is constructive and Ritchie deals with each category of his final Xl in steps.

There are bound to be people who disagree with Richie's selection but I for one will not be one of them. I may have my own personal favorites such as Wasim Akram and Steve Waugh, but compared to Richie, I am vastly under qualified to challenge the greatest Xl of a whole 100 years.

Although I would have had the brilliant South African Graeme Pollock in the team, I can't argue with any of the other ten choices by the 'voice of cricket', Ritchie Benaud. Superbly presented and a brilliant description as to why he selected who he did, this is a 'must' to have in every cricket lover's collection

Perfectly justified, and in 5 or 6 places in the order, totally undisputed. However, I can think of a few lads who could give this lot a game. More chat than bat, but no one would be under any illusions other wise. Richie is an education, so consider this schooling.

This is a marvellous review of the best of world cricketing over the past 100 years. Richie Benaud looks at the the top players in each category (for example opening bat, fast bowling, spin bowling), discusses their skills and chooses his best eleven on this basis. It's a testament to this great cricketer and commentator that the team he chooses covers all eras and all nationalities. This DVD should be a 'must see' for all aspiring young cricketers.
