    Most elegant batsmen

    I'm not necessarily after batsmen with the best average, most runs, most 100s or even hardest hitting but just simply the most elegant, graceful and Classical to watch.

    Those who bring real pleasure to the eye.


    For me a few that spring to mind are...

    Martin Crowe
    Mark Waugh
    VVS Laxman
    David Gower
    Greg Chappell
    Stephen Fleming
    Damien Martyn

    Darryl Cullinan and Andrew Hudson. Even Shaun Pollock can play some very nice looking shots. If he had concentrated on his batting, he would be averaging over 40 in Tests now.

    The nick "Hyderabadi Stylist" suits him so well - IMO its VVS Laxman.

    PS: I made a similar thread a year ago

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Marlon Samuels.
    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."
