#6: Ian Botham and Gundappa Viswanath

Vishy playing Botham

Botham could single-handedly turn any game on its head, while Viswanath was delightfully wristy stroke-maker. But Botham clearly had the upper hand in their personal rivalry.

The Englishman dismissed Viswanath eight times. He was clean bowled twice, caught by a fielder twice and caught behind four times


#7: Jeff Thomson and Alan Knott

Knott crying out in pain

Knott was one of the best wicketkeeper batsmen ever produced by England, and Thomson was perhaps the fastest bowler of all time. The match-up wasn't very even though.

Thomson dismissed Knott nine times. He was clean bowled thrice, caught by a fielder four times, caught behind once and leg before once.

#8: Malcolm Marshall and Graham Gooch

Gooch bowled out by Marshall

Marshall was easily the most fearsome bowler of his time. And while Gooch was wristy and persistent, he could never quite figure out the great West Indian fast bowler.

Marshall dismissed Gooch a whopping 16 times. He was clean bowled four times, caught by a fielder thrice, caught behind four times and leg before five times.
