David Gower's Half-Century - The 50 Greatest Cricketers Of All Time

David Gower's Half-CenturyAsked to rank their top 50 players of all time, many fans of the game would place former England captain David Gower in their list, but which players did he choose?

In this book, Ashes-winning skipper Gower combines anecdotes and insider knowledge from his time in the game to rank his leading players.

And he has created plenty of discussion points, not least by leaving out fellow ex-England captains Andrew Strauss and Mike Atherton.

Find out who he thinks was the best of the West Indian quick bowlers, who he feels is the best Australian batsman since Bradman, and who was better, Sir Ian Botham or Imran Khan.

It is a "highly flammable" list designed to spark debate among fans all around the world.


David Gower began his career with Leicestershire, going on to also play for Hampshire and captained England between 1983 and 1989, notably leading the team to Ashes success in Australia in 1985.

An elegant left-hander, he scored 8,231 Test runs and 3,170 One-Day International runs before retiring in 1993.

He has since become the frontman for Sky's international cricket coverage.
