who is the best catcher at slips
who is the best catcher at slips
tone of good ones....Botham might have been one of the very best
rave down, hit the ground
yeah Flintoff is pretty good..not close to best in the world, but ive seen him take some miracles catches in the slips and ofcourse there is me jk
The best three are probably Bobby Simpson, Walter Hammond and Mark Waugh. Not necessarily in that order.
THE ULTIMATE CRICKET WEB ARCADE EGGS CHAMPION

RIP Craig Walsh (AKA "Craig"), 1985-2012
I'm certain we did this fairly recently, but anyway Junior Waugh was the best I ever saw. Graeme Hick top notch too, huge old mitts he has.
Beefy very good too, although I missed his absolute peak. His back probs affected him in his later career.
Of current players....Hmm....Freddie?

- As featured in The Independent.
"The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
- Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
good atleast someone agrees with me haha

yeh in the present day flintoff is pretty damn good, there was one against the west indies when giles was bowling in one of the tests last year that stands out in my mind, although there indeed have been many other outstanding catches by fred
i rembered the damn same
and more ofcourse
I read that "when Bobby Simpson had to dive, you can bet your bottom dollar no one else would have seen it".
"The Australian cricket captain is the Prime Minister Australia wishes it had. Steve Waugh is that man, Michael Clarke is not." - Jarrod Kimber
RIP Fardin Qayyumi and Craig Walsh - true icons of CricketWeb.
Impossible for the first 2 to be rated so highly, they played far too early in the centruy to have been challenged.Originally Posted by a massive zebra
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!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
mark waugh was good. Shane warne also seems to be doing a good job.
Mark Waugh is the best Ive seen, no doubt
Shane Warne? I think Fleming is better than him
That drop thnat Warne did in the recent series vs NZ was a crack up, he ran all the way up to the bowler (Kaspa?) to give him a tip on how to bowl then ran back and dumped a simple chance ha ha ha ha ha ha
If scorer kept a record of dropped catches we would have more of an idea who really is the best. From the guys i have seen Mark Waugh, Taylor and Brain McMillian were the best.
One current players Freddie, Warne and Fleming are pretty even, they all take some good ones and drop some easier ones.
The man, the mountain, the Mathews. The greatest all rounder since Keith Miller. (Y)
