    Who would you like to...

    ...bowl or bat against. In other words - If you could bowl or bat against any player in the world, who would it be and why?

    Personally, being a bowler, as poor as it is, Id love to bowl against Murali! Just to see what crazy **** he`d pull off against me (or rather, NOT pull off!)

    I would love to field in the covers to the batting of someone like Jack Hobbs or Hutton or at first slip to the bowling of a Statham.

    I would like to try batting against Richard Hadlee bowling a bit under his top speed though

    I would like to try bowling my slow medium in swing (when I was able to swing ) bowling round the wicket to Ganguly.

    I'd love to bat against Giles, Warne, Murrali, Laker or Bedi.

    Keeping to Warne and Murrali(I'm a keeper) would be fab.
    Or something.

    I'd probably bowl a wide.

    I would like to

    Bat against Shoaib or Bing, but only if they promised not to kill me.

    Bowl to Gilly to see how far he can hit me. Maybe we could break a record together.

    If I was pretty good ...

    I'd love to bat against Shoaib or Lee. The pace of the ball coming on to the bat, and smashing it through the covers or straight back past the bowler, gotta be a great feeling.

    Bowling, I'd love to bowl to a tail ender like Harbhajan. That'd be great fun.

    Batting against a particularly short-tempered McGrath (the Aussie not the much-maligned English namesake). Smacking one straight over his head for 6 then watching his reaction as he loses it and dishes up some long hops to hit, would be quite fun I reckon.
