This is my choice of batsman for world XI of last 50 years for a pitch untrue for test cricket with inconsistent bounce.This is my corrected version where by mistake I included batsman in last list who played before 1970. 1.Sunil Gavaskar Not so flamboyant but still a master as he displayed on a turning track at Bangalore v Pakistan in 19878 or on cracked pitch v West Indies at Ahmedabad in 1983-84.Batted like a surgeon performing an operation in testing conditions. 2.Virendra Sehwag Impeccable style with a majestic scoring rate like an Olympic sprinter racing.Played the finest knock son bad wickets in Sri Lanka in 2001 and England at Kolkata in 2008. 3.Rahul Dravid Outscored even Tendulkar in a crisis and in peak era arguably best batsman in the world.Turned important series against Australia and South Africa and England. 4.Ian Chappell Whn the chips were down or when a side was n the depths of despair Ian could be more handy than even Viv Richards or Greg Chappell.I can never forget his dancing down the spinners to combat vicious turn or fending of or hooking to confront short-pitched deliveries at express pace.Averaged over 50 at one down as well as scored 12 centuries.Better player of a bouncing ball or spin than brother Greg or Steve Waugh. 5.Alan Border The ultimate champion in losing causes but still won important games or series for Australia.No left hander was as combative on bad wickets as Border who resembled a surgeon performing an operation.At his best when scoring 2 150's in a single test at Lahore on a turning pitch in 1980 ,100and 98.n.o at Trinidad in 1984 and 79 n.o at Melbourne v England in 1982-83. Harvey could bat like a magician when the situation demanded like when sculpting a famous win in run chase of 336 runs against South Africa in 1951.Instrumental in shaping Australia into aside of world beaters revealing skill of mythical heights in adverse conditions in England. 6.Javed Miandad Although not as agressive as Viv Richards or as correct as Gavaskar morally more combative than anyone on his day.Border may have been a whisker ahead to bat for your life ,bit not as effective in niggling opponents to the limit.Whether on a wet English pitch or a final day Australian wicket with inconsistent bounce Javed was the ultimate battler.Miandad wast he ultimate catalyst as an improviser.Chosen over Drvaid or Steve Waugh because of the weight of his sheer character. 7.Steve Waugh No batsman more consistent in turning or winning games as Steve as he proved in West Indies on challenging wickets and in South Africa.Also useful bowler.More mental resilience than Lara or Tendulkar.
