    Dravid, to me, has the best temperament, and was the first name I thought of upon reading this thread.

    mark richardson and thorpe, both of whom can spend a whole day at the crease without losing focus.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Agree, I think Ian Bell may come into it once hes established, he looked very good on his debut.

    Mark Waugh is similar in temprament to Laxman. Relaxed, cool, almost detatched.
    I thought so to until I had the opportunity to read his autobiography which he released soon after his retirement/dumping. He does admit to pre-match nerves and more than one sleepless night. However, he also went on to say that making an issue out of it didn't achieve anything so he would make it a point to remain calm.

    It was that calmness that new members to the team remembered and it often helped settle their debut nerves.

    Hate to be repetitive but Dravid first comes to mind.

    And the man who fits the DON's criteria for best temprament is......

    Rahul Dravid


    A straw poll at this stage shows 11 people opting for Rahul Dravid (for 6 of them he is their sole choice). S. Waugh is second with 3 nominations (1 of them an only choice). Mark Richardson, Strauss and Thorpe got 2 nominations each (one for Strauss being conditional -will become).

    As cricket books go it is quite good. Usually one receives very little insight into the players private lives but Mark does give the reader an insight into what goes in behind closed doors. Especially interesting is his 'affair' with his until recent partner. Most people would try to hide this but Mark is honest and open about it which is refreshing.

    From a cricket point of view it is also quite a good read. I always saw him as a very debonaire and relaxed player but he does admit to pre-game jitters and often questioned his worth, especially his inability to make really big test scores.

    All in all I would recommend it, if for nothing else than the photo of him and Steve aged 7 wearing the cowboy costumes.

    I've read his biography (didn't know he had an auto-bio) He writes bits in it too. The biography is very good and gives a very accurate description of Mark himself and his life.
    I would've thought that he'd be too modest if he wrote an autobiograpgy.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Good call on chanderpaul, all that nervous energy and his constant twitching belies his abundance of talent. Impressed me alot this summer against england when everyone else was crumbling around him.
