Thanks for your insight.
One more thought about kallis. I don't think any cricketing authority figure can call Kallis the greatest while he is still playing... that would just be wrong. I think that can only be bestowed after a cricketers retirement. That would be proper. I think the greatness is a lifetime achievement award....and Kallis' life is still on - on the pitch.
i agree in one sense, but in another.....if a player is the greatest then they are the greatest. we've had soo many great allrounders since sobers but still people consider sobers the best so to find someone better than him would be quite the revelation which is why i think there would be more talk of kallis as the potential best if if people thought he was.
