County Cricket

Who are county cricket’s greatest overseas players?

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

In 1968 county cricket welcomed the world’s greatest players through its doors by relaxing the rules on residential qualification, and the game has never been the same since.

As well as Jon Hotten telling the story of a transformative half-century for the English game, to mark this 50th anniversary we’ve asked an expert on each county to pick their top three for that club – and given you the chance to vote on them, too.

See our experts’ picks and explanations, or have your own say, using the links below.
