    Rank the teams from most to least likeable

    1. Mark Wood- good bowler, always seems to enjoy himself, quality footballer. Hasn't been around long enough to show any dickish side. Extra points for looking exactly like a really nice guy I know.

    2. Mitchell Johnson- purely for being incredibly entertaining as a cricketer, whether bowling well, bowling badly, or batting.

    3. Steve Smith- Comes across as really lovely, quality bat and bowls legspin.

    4. Josh Hazlewood- no nonsense, just gets the job done

    5. James Anderson- ATG at sending down those deliveries so sexy that they make you clench your buttcheeks. Would be higher were it not for the mildly embarrassing tendency to burst into tears.

    6. Chris Rogers- solid old pro, so easy to get behind

    7. Michael Clarke- I was never a big fan but he came across like an absolute champ after what happened to Hughes. Good, entertaining captaincy too.

    8. Moeen Ali- spins ball hard, bats aggressively, has cool beard.

    9. Nathan Lyon- quite a nice bowler to watch, also endearingly uncool.

    10. Mitchell Starc- exciting bowler who loses points through no fault of his own because of benchy's love-in

    11. Jos Buttler- pretty good fun to watch

    12 Adam Voges- moving into the boring middle order now, Voges out on top for his county career.

    13. Mitchell Marsh- no opinion

    14. Peter Nevill- no opinion

    15. Joe Root- brilliant batting balanced out by the fact that he's still a little bit in need of a slap.

    16. Gary Ballance- Very boring batsman, neither stylish nor entertaining. Could be lower, purely on cricketing grounds, but gets far too much hate on the forums, which makes me want to defend him.

    17. Ian Bell- I have no logic, I'm just kind of bored of him being around.

    18. Adam Lyth- Again neither stylish nor entertaining. Yet to do anything that would leave a lasting impression.

    19. Shane Watson- Bit of a tragic figure, feels like the defining image of the post-McWarne era of Australian cricket will be Watto signalling for a hopeless review. Tendency to occasionally be a bell-end on the field partly counteracted by sympathy.

    20. Peter Siddle- Likeable in some ways, but it's hard to shake the feeling that he thinks he's really hard. Find his bowling a bit basic too, not a lot of fun to be had.

    21. Stuart Broad- I like him as a bowler but can't really get over his in-your-face poshness. Wicket celebrations particularly annoying.

    22. David Warner- Entertaining batting can't overcome his painfully bogan tweets.

    23. Ben Stokes- Kind of like Siddle but without the redeeming features. Seems to spend entire games pretending to be really, really angry.

    24. Alastair Cook- Those KP-related press conferences, dear ****ing god, has anyone in cricket ever come across as more of a prick.

    Anderson is a tool

    High quality cricketer but an absolute hypocrite (one of the world's biggest sledgers appealing for spirit of the game after 100+ tests and a boring as **** northerner whinging about no-0ne wanting to drink with him)

    Give me a break!

    Warner is no. 22 but close run by this dick

    Clarke, Warner, Johnson, anyone who seems to think of 'the line' as something important when it comes to sledging should be right down at the bottom. Double points if they also seem to believe that 'aggressive cricket' is linked to it, as though being an abusive **** on the field will give you cricketing superpowers

    I love how Haddin is so dire he didn't merit a rating.

    Johnson was nothing like that when he first came to England. He's one of cricket's great narrative arcs, enduring endless mocking before coming back to single-handedly destroy the smug English. He's earned the right to be confrontational.

    Plus he's the one doing the bowling. Clarke and Warner are just tag-alongs telling the English batsmen what their bigger, stronger mate is going to do to them.

    i'd prefer johnson (and pretty much most players) to be effective/performing well rather than likeable

    Can't get many bigger bellends that Clarke and Haddin. Sure the aussies feel the same about Anderson and Broad.

    So there's probably quite a bit of questionable logic here but anywho.

    1. Mitchell Johnson - Flawed, but love this man so much. Jono's quote in my signature about sums it up, he's ****ing awesome for cricket, so entertaining. Also love that SteveNZ (i think? was definitely one of the kiwi posters) called him a Snarling Mongoose, such a cool villain description. Killer moustache
    2. Nathan Lyon - Uppercut's spot on here, love watching him bowl, love his bobbleheadedness, and he is indeed endearingly uncool. Also the poor way he's been treated by selectors in the past, and some of the ridiculous criticism he's received really makes me want see him do well.
    3. Michael Clarke - Have always been a fan of clarkeh, but the way he handled last summer was amazing
    4. Joe Root - I've done a complete 180 on my opinion of Root, brilliant to watch. So he's a bit of a knob, but eh, cricket would be boring if everyone was as nice as say Rogers (yeah cliche etc.) Also scores points for his inability to hide that grin when Cook copped it in the nads, so evil. Also those reviews in 2013/14 were just so Watto
    5. Alastair Cook - Seems a genuinely nice bloke (even if the KP stuff was a bit meh, I didn't really follow it all that much so for me it's easily forgettable), love that pull-shot.
    6. Steve Smith - TPC, those straight drives
    7. Gary Ballance - Teddy bear
    8. Shane Watson - Bit of a Johnson lite for me, so flawed, but so entertaining, the facial expressions are always priceless. School girl antics (see the Gayle celebration) and being scared of ghosts moves him down a bit.
    9. Josh Hazlewood - Just so good
    10. Moeen Ali - The beard, really enjoyed watching him bowl, except for the part where he dismissed TPC/Clarke etc.
    11. Chris Rogers - Such a nerdy nice guy. Also a bit of an underdog
    12. Mark Wood - Interesting to watch bowl, and looks like a nice guy.
    13. Adam Voges - See Rogers - though loses points as I wanted to see C Ferg get a run.
    14. Peter Nevill - For whatever reason I've assumed he's just like Rogers & Voges.
    15. Jos Buttler - No opinion
    16. Mitchell Marsh - I quite like Marsh, but he loses points for being an Inferior Mitch, and along with his brother has also dropped catches off of the 1 true Mitch.
    17. Adam Lyth - eh, seems forgettable
    18. Ian Bell - seeing as I'd forgotten about him, it's difficult not to agree with Uppercut. Also has a very punch-able face, Warner hit the wrong pom 8|
    19. James Anderson - Tosser, whinging git.
    20. David Warner - Idiot
    21. Peter Siddle - Southern Cross tattoo, Victorian
    22. Mitchell Starc - Such a tryhard, there's only 1 real Mitch, lacks a moustache
    23. Stuart Broad - His dismissals last ashes where he couldn't run away from Super-Mitch fast enough were gloriously funny, but he's won too many matches for England, and he looks too much like Chris Froome (ok so really it's just that he's tall/lanky/blonde). I hate Chris Froome.
    24. Ben Stokes - Just so tough, kinda like a gym bro? Basically Warner but x 1000
