Batistuta. He's too cool not to vote for.
Big Den currently leads Batigol by 10-4 & Peru's finest holds an 8-2 advantage over the scourge of Eire. Both ties remain open.
I won't be able to get online for a couple of days so will put up next two days' worth of battles; will all remain open until I'm next on. 11 & 14 corkers, IMHO.

Best: Runner-Up in 1974 & 1978.
Noteable for: An amazing technique and giving the Dutch a short lived lead in the 74 final.

"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
