i think because it's so tough to make an all time team, people use the little things to pick one player over another. i mean you can't argue that he only played 4 tests and therefore was untested at test level thus there is a chance he wouldn't have been as successful as he was at FC level i mean there are a lot of players who succeed in FC cricket but not in test cricket hick and ramprakash for example but barry richards to me is the best opener of all time.
All Time Test XI: 1 Hobbs 2 B.Richards 3 Bradman 4 Pollock 5 V.Richards 6 Sobers 7 Gilchrist 8 Miller 9 Procter 10 Marshall 11 Warne
