In this list I am ranking in order of merit the combination of 2 greatest cricketers ever who played together in a team .

1.Don Bradman-Keith Miller

The greatest batsmen ever with the best ever match-winner as an allrounder.Best of match-winners .

2.Gary Sobers -Rohan Kanhai

Sobers took al-round cricketing skill to depths never traversed or in metaphysical regions while Kanhai took batting art or skill to regions of divinty.Tow of cricket's greatest geniuses.

3.Viv Richards-Malcolm Marshall

Viv was the most intimidating batsmen who took domination to region s of the sublime while Marshall virtually took the art of fast bowling to regions unexplored .Viv dessicrated all bowling attacks while the best of batsmen could not cope with Marshall's skidding bounce or banana swing.

4.Barry Richards-Mike Procter

Hardly played at international level but morally in terms of skill the ultimate combination.Barry was the ultimate epitome of batting perfection while Procter took al-round skill to supreme heights.

5.Javed Miandad-Imran Khan

Javed was the ultimate bating connoiseur in a crisis with great ability to improvise or execute uncanny strokes .Imran was arguably the best all-rounder of his era or even amongst the top 3 all-rounders of al time in addition to being a great captain.

6.Jacques Kallis-Dale Steyn

Statistically the greatest all-rounder ever with the top 3 statistically best fast bowlers of al time.Steyn had supreme agression to back his great speed and diversity.In a total cricketing package in terms of skill Kallis would well make the top 5 of all cricketers.

7.Ricky Ponting-Shane Warne

2 of cricket's ultimate match-winners.Warne re-defined the role of a leg spinner with supreme skil while Ponting was statistically a giant of his era,overshadowing even Lara and Tendulkar.

8.Greg Chappell-Dennis Lillee

Both were simply the ultimate epitome of cricketing perfection.Greg was technically perfect and could tear any bowling attack,while Lillee posessed every component of a perfect fast bowler be it action,speed control,accuracy or movement.

9.Brian Lara-Curtly Ambrose

Lara took batting artistry to metaphysical proportions while Ambrose on his day was more devastating than any pacemen on a broken wicket or in a 4th innings.Both could single-handedly win games.

10.Inzamam Ul Haq-Wasim Akram

Inzy was arguably the best player of pace in his time with great flamboyance.Wasim took fast bowling art or wizardry to regions never traversed resembling a magician .Inzy was the best match-winner of his day while Wasim was the most lethal of bowlers.

11.Steve Waugh-Glen Mcgrath

2 of coolest and most calculating cricketers .No pacemen ever was more intelligent or posessed more control or ability to judge an opponent's weaknesses as Mcgrath.In a crisis Steve was the most effective batsmen in his time,particularly on bad wickets with greater mental tenacity than Sachin or Lara.

12.Sunil Gavaskar-Kapil Dev

Both truly great crusaders with completely contrasting styles.Gavaskar was the ultimate epitome of technical perfection,concentration and determination and the ultimate one to bat for your life.Kapil was amongst the most flamboyant batsmen and most effective or impactful fast-medium pace bowlers of all time.
