    Most dangerous would be someone who keeps smashing the ball into the crowd and is pretty fast when he's bowling... ie Flintoff.

    what a surprise an englishman would suggest flintoff eh scaley....very predictable.. C'mon , You can't put Flintoff in the same class as Gilchrist....From a NZ'ders point of view, I'd much rather see the back of Gilchrist when he's batting against NZ than Flintoff...in fact I'd rate at least 3 other Australian Batsmen as more dangerous than Flintoff..and at least another 10 batsmen in world cricket i'd rather see the back off


    But thanks for being so predictable though

    When firing, I would doubt there's anyone in World Cricket to challenge Flintoff.

    He's yet to be anywhere near on top of his game for both disciplines at one time, but he always seem to have a major impact with either bat or ball in every series.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    But is Gilchrist's keeping anywhere near Flintoff's bowling?

    I would actually agree with Flintoff. He's turned into a bowler who a batsman must be very wary of and who can turn a game quite quickly. With the bat he can be so devastating too. IMO Flintoff at his best is as devastating as Gilchrist at his best.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    No The fact gilchrist doesn't bowl is irrelevant - and that isn't got anything to do with it..I was referring to Gilchrist's batting when I refer to him as the most dangerous player... The way he consistently comes in and changes the shape of a test match usually within a session ..

    Aside from that I'd hardly say a test bowling ave of 36 makes Flintoff the most dangerous player

    I would vote for Flintoff and Gilchrist.

    And how do you find dangerous - where he is always looking like getting a wicket or dangerous where somebodies health could be danger if they get decked by a fast bouncer. In that case I would go for Shoaib Ahktar, when on form and on song he can rip through any batting line-up and has done so too.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    okay possibly I have should have been clearer in creating this thread...."The most Consistently dangerous player"...

    I mean sure Flintoff has the odd great test innings smoking sixes all over the place and sure Atkar on his day can rip thru the opposition......

    but Gilchrist seems to do it almost 50% of the time...

    Who else in test cricket has ever had a batting ave over 50 and a strike rate over 80 ..

    just a reminder of his record

    Shane Bond can be quite devastating. Escpecially when he sees those yellow uniforms.

    Batting.. Hmm... Gilly.

    Andrew Flintoff is the most dangerous cricketer in international cricket today.
