The Best XI free pdf Who'd make it into the best England team ever? And you can choose anyone, regardless of when they might have played. Would W.G. Grace be playing alongside Denis Compton and David Gower? Or Kevin Pietersen? The debate could be endless, so who better to make the selection than Geoffrey Boycott, himself one of England's all-time highest scoring Test batsmen and now the game's most forthright, shrewd and iconoclastic commentator. Based on his own fresh analysis and interpretation of the statistics, Boycs has come up with his own, sometimes surprising Best Eleven of all time. And he's not just cast a critical eye over England's finest either. Every other test-playing nation comes under the spotlight. You may not agree - in fact, you're almost certain not to - but each player has been carefully chosen and the case for his inclusion forcefully argued in what is sure to be the most entertaining, thought-provoking and memorable cricket books of the year from one of the game's most outspoken and enduring characters.

About Geoffrey Boycott

Geoffrey Boycott first played for Yorkshire in 1962. He played his first Test match for England just two years later before going on to become the first England cricketer to pass 8000 runs. In an eighteen year career he played in 108 Test matches, scored 22 Test centuries, including a high score of 246 and ended with a Test average of 47.73. Since retiring as a player, he has enjoyed a hugely successful career as a commentator. He lives in Jersey and South Africa.
