    Fattest, Laziest, Unfit Cricketer

    Who's the fattest, laziest, unfit cricketer. Three examples immiediately spring into my mind. Inzi, Ranatunga n Warnie.

    Any others?

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Merv Hughes n Boonie...

    Don't think many cricketers have a staple diet of Fosters, Benson + Hedges n Chops anymore.

    Another great man. Can't wait til he comes over here at the end of the year. I know what I'm gonna be yelling if he's ever fielding in the deep.

    Gotta make a nomination for Eddie "The Whale" Hemmings, his nickname says it all!

    Of current England players Rob Key looks a relative stranger to the gym. Freddie seems to have it under control @ the moment, but the potential for some good guttage remains!

    I met that guy once, didn't have a chance to talk much as it was in a crowdy bar.

    We've had one or two over the years. Remember Ormond & Afzaal getting in trouble with Fletcher a couple of years ago? Tresco isn't exactly slimline. Botham was carrying a fair bit for a while, IIRC.

    Now you mention it I do recall seeing a pic of Jimmy Ormond bowling in the nets (last Ashes tour?) with his top off sporting what could only be called a pair of moobs! Eeeuuw!

    Fat - possibly
    Lazy - maybe
    unfit - certainly

    but he still took 212 wickets @ 28.38 and spent the last two years of his test career bowling with a knee so badly degraded we mere mortals probably couldn't even have walked with the same injury.

    Love the Mambo shirt underneath his test uniform

    What do you reckon is on his shirt under his cricket shirt? It looks a bit like a VB shirt.

    I think (as Western Warrior guessed) it's a late 80's/early 90's Mambo shirt - classic gear at the time. Some of the designs were done by Reg Mombassa, the Mental as Anything guitarist, IIRC.

    My nominee: Ranatunga. Eddie Hemmings was a good call though. Now, there just doesn't seem as much room for it - even Inzi looks slimmer than he used to.

    Warnie surely wouldn't fit into this category anymore.

    Arjuna's Fatwalk on a pitch would beat Naomi Cambel's Catwalk on a ramp anyday.
