    Who Would you have Bat for your Life

    Let's pretend we're not trying to commit suicide here and say Glenn McGrath...

    Anyway.. With Steve Waugh now off the scene (and I think most would rate him as the bloke you'd have bat for your life) who now takes that mantle off him... This is the sorta bloke that when the chips are really down simply will be the hardest and most dogged to get out and not throw their wicket away....

    Let the posting begin...

    For me it would have to now be Justin Langer...
    In pressure situations Justin's great. He's not pretty to watch but neither was Waugh and has an uncanny will to survive... I'll never forget it when he got Australia over the line with Gilly against the Pakies...

    I agree that Langer is probably the mentally toughest batsman going around. In the past it would have been Steve Waugh or Allan Border. If we're allowed to nominate one from our own country then I would go with Andrew Jones.

    If my life depended on the batter not getting out I'd go for Dravid without question.

    If I were selecting an Englishman tho....probably Strauss just now, although he showed a few signs in the ODIs that his purple patch myabe coming to its end.

    The Dravster just can't be beat here.

    Although if the world was being invaded by the killer cricket balls, I'd want Border to beat the buggers back. (Stolen from somewhere)

    Dravid, without a doubt. Next would probably be Kallis.

    Kallis. Without a trace of doubt.

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."

    Ok, so that should be Dravid/Kallis (equal footing). Without a doubt.

    Dravid would be my pick. Obstinate, maniacally focussed.
