    Best Players of a particular shot...

    For mine and I'm not really going on elegance and how good a shot looks but rather it's effectivness.

    Cover Drive Front foot : Lara
    Cover Drive backfoot : SRT
    Cut Shot: Shewag / Gilchrist
    Pull / Hook : Ponting
    Leg glance : Laxman?
    On Drive: Ponting
    Off drive: No sure SRT of old used to play it well
    Sweep: Lara?
    Slog Sweep: Tresco maybe?
    General Slog over midwicket: Gilchrist
    Best footwork to spinners: Clarke and Lara
    Square Drive: hmmmm would have been Martyn I think?
    Straight sixes and lofted drives: Flintoff, Gayle, Symonds
    Late cut: ????
    French cut: Vaughan


    And what player do you think has the best trademark shot that they play better than anyone when in full flow?

    Sidhu was the best in dancing down the track and hitting sixes off spinners
    Rohit Sharma is the most hyped cricketer ever...

    A few changes that I'd personally make...

    General Slog over midwicket: Lehmann.
    On Drive: I'd put Tendy with Ponting on that one. Especially considering that Tendy's is more classical.
    Cover Drife - Front Foot: Vaughan

    Would probably say Pietersen, he slayed Warney on many an occasion with the slog sweep in the Ashes series.

    I would love to see Atapattu's name ahead of Lara

    Lehmann no longer plays International cricket but he has a good case... I would still go for Gilly.

    Vaughan's looks one of the best if not the best but I don't think it's as effective as some people think and it gets him out a fair bit.

    Again I think that's a case of his cover drive looking great, but he doesn't make as many runs off it as lara IMO and gets cought behind playing it more..

    I'd have Ponting for all the on-side shots. Square cut, Kallis? Forward defensive: Kallis again. Backward short defensive: Steve Waugh.

    And what player do you think has the best trademark shot that they play better than anyone when in full flow?

    Ian Bell - caught behind. Already he has it pat.

    How about Nathan Astle for the cut shot. When in his prime, he had that peculiar knack of sending the ball very square from nowhere.

    Ponting does have a good case for all legside shots exept the sweep he's not a big sweeper.

    For defensive shots I would say Kallis and Dravid..

    I probably havn't seen him play it enough to judge.. but he was a very good player a few years ago.

    I think Astle is good with all offside shots actually.

    I have to be biased and say Stephen Fleming for the front foot straight drive along the ground.
