    Happy 56th Birthday D.K.

    It's Dennis Lillee's 56th Birthday today.

    All I have to say is that he's the greatest fast bowler of all time, in terms of having it all together.

    What a champion.

    Happy Birthday to an awesome pace bowler.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Has anyone read the latest bio of 'fot'? I have it here, but the earlier efforts on the great bowler I found quite boring.
