Country: England
Other major teams: Yorkshire
Career stats in Tests: 58 matches, 2,325 runs, 30.19 batting average, 2 100s, 127 wickets , 26.96 bowling average


Bottom line: Wilfred Rhodes had an outstanding first-class career. The Yorkshire player amassed 39,969 runs at an average of 30.81 and bagged 4,204 wickets at an astounding average of 16.72.
Rhodes’ Test career lasted 31 years, and he had batted all positions from 1 to 11. He started batting at No. 10 and later opened for England and scored 2 hundreds.

19. Monty Noble


Experience: 1898-1909
Country: Australia
Other major teams: New South Wales
Career stats in Tests: 42 matches, 1,997 runs, 30.25 batting average, 1 100s, 121 wickets , 25.00 bowling average


Bottom line: Monty Noble proved his mettle in his second match by taking six wickets for 49 and guided the Aussies to an innings victory at the MCG. He did his bit with the bat by batting 510 minutes and saved Australia from a loss in 1899.
The Australian all-rounder picked up 7-70 in the first innings and bagged 6-60 in the second against England at the MCG in the 1901-02 series. He was a reliable batsman albeit scoring only one Test century in his career.
He was a giant in first-class cricket. He scored 13,975 runs at an average of 40.74, including 37 hundreds and bagged 624 wickets at an average of 23.14, with 33 fifers.

18. Tony Greig


Experience: 1972-79
Country: England
Other major teams: Sus***, Border
Career stats in Tests: 58 matches, 3,599 runs, 40.43 batting average, 8 100s, 141 wickets, 32.20 bowling average
Career stats in ODIs: 22 matches, 269 runs, 16.81 batting average, 0 100s, 19 wickets, 32.57 bowling average


Bottom line: Present-day cricket fans know Tony Greig as an accomplished cricket commentator, who was full of energy and enthusiasm at the commentary box. But before that, he turned up for England and shined with both bat and the ball.
Greig had a Test average of 40.43 and showed tremendous character when the going got tough. He made centuries against top bowling attacks such as Lillee and Thomson, Roberts and Holding, Bedi and Chandra.
The right-arm bowler could bowl medium pace and off-breaks. He picked up 141 wickets at an average of 32.20, including 6 fifers.

17. Lance Klusener


Experience: 1996-2004
Country: South Africa
Other major teams: Dolphins, Middle***
Career stats in Tests: 49 matches, 1,906 runs, 32.86 batting average, 4 100s, 80 wickets , 37.91 bowling average
Career stats in ODIs: 171 matches, 3,576 runs, 41.10 batting average, 2 100s, 192 wickets , 29.95 bowling average


Bottom line: Lance Klusener was a phenomenal ODI player and a useful Test cricketer. Although he had a short career, he made his mark before hanging up his gloves.
Klusener was on top of his game during the 1999 World Cup and was adjudged the Player of the Tournament. The southpaw scored 281 runs at an average of 140.50 and a strike-rate of 122.27, a dream scoring rate in the pre-T20 era. With the ball, he picked up 17 wickets at an average of 20.58.
He almost won the semifinal against Australia out of nowhere by scoring an unbeaten 31 off just 16 deliveries. However, the match ended in a tie, and South Africa was knocked out from the tournament.

16. Abdul Razzaq


Experience: 1996-2011
Country: Pakistan
Other major teams: Lahore, Surrey
Career stats in Tests: 46 matches, 1,946 runs, 28.61 batting average, 3 100s, 100 wickets , 36.94 bowling average
Career stats in ODIs: 265 matches, 5,080 runs, 29.70 batting average, 3 100s, 269 wickets , 31.83 bowling average


Bottom line: Abdul Razzaq was one of the best all-rounders in ODIs. He came to the Pakistan team for his fast bowling, and over the years, he made a name for his batting, too.
His bowling record, 269 wickets at an average of 31.84, is up there with the best. As a batsman, he was used as a floater and batted in all positions from opening to No. 11. His batting average, 29.71, doesn’t do justice to his match-winning ability as he batted in the lower-middle order mostly at No. 6, 7 and 8.
Though he couldn’t stamp his authority in Tests as he did in ODIs, he still ended up a decent all-rounder. In his 46-match Test career, he bagged 100 wickets and scored 1,946 runs.
