Gavaskar and Boycott were more of a wall against whom agressive fast bowlers waste their energies. Apart from holding their wicket they didnt do much. The other three dont suit todays cricket. I am surpised why u didnt include modern day players like Gilcrist, sewag or sachin, all of whom were better players than ur list of 5 !
