Apologies if this has already been asked but here goes again...the ICC Hall of Fame consists of 55 retired players...can you name as many as possible, with or without cheating?? I got 40 out of the 55.

They have all retired before 2003 (oops!!) so players such as Warne and McGrath arent in there just yet.

To help you here is the breakdown of where they're all from...England 22, West Indies 13, Australia 11, India 3, Pakistan 3, South Africa 2, New Zealand 1

Working upwards from the bottom:

The NZ one is obviously Hadlee

South Africa: Barry Richards....Graeme Pollock?

Pakistan: Imran Khan and Javed Miandad, can't think of the third (its probably someone really famous and obvious who I've missed out)

India: Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev, again a third escapes me

Australia: Rodney Marsh, Allan Border, Bradman, Benaud, Lillee, the two Chappells...are Merv Hughes, Dean Jones or David Boon in there?
