    Can't believe nobody's mentioned Mark Richardson. Dravid is a lot more aggressive nowadays. He mixes a new found positiveness with his already solid technique.

    I'd say Richardson is more defensive than Dravid.

    He was mentioned in the initial post. I guess no one felt the need to disagree with his selection, so he didn't get mentioned again.

    Sir Geoffrey.

    He played his last test in 1982. Atherton was primarily defensive too.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
