    Player's Heights

    I know we had a thread once asking who are the tallest and shortest players, but I was wondering if anyone knows how I could find out how tall some of the current players are?

    Oram, Cairns & Fleming are fairly imposing. But wait until you see Peter Fulton.

    I'd also like to know if any of the players are smaller then average, for example, Brian Lara.

    i think fulton and oram are the same height about 6ft6 / 198-199cm.
    shortest in the nz team i think it might be marshall, not to sure on that though.

    being tall or being short does it matter or it does? i know for sure being tall and being a ball is alot of help like mcgrath kasporwiz are really tall and they are the best bowler's so how does it help you being tall and being a fast bowler any suggestion because i am tall and i want to be a batsman rather being a bowler.

    Yet, by the same token, one of the best bowlers of all time (certainly better than ANY current bowler) was one Malcolm Denzil Marshall...

    what about batting does it really matter if you are tall are short.most of the player's example sehwag tendulkar etc are short and they are the best batsman alive.
