    Hayden>Ambrose (this was nipped in the bud somewhat by Ambrose retiring but, seriously, Haydos couldnt lay a glove on him, let alone the middle of the bat.)

    Bradman>Bedser. Well he was, for a while. Morris was Bedser's real bunny, dismissed him 18 times in Tests (second only to Atherton-McGrath I think).

    Hang on, why is everyone using "greater than" to indicate being someone's bunny? Cullinan greater than Warne? I don't think so.

    Seriously, some other ones. Gillespie seems to get Tendulkar out rather frequently. Warne had it all over Giles during the Ashes. Nobody's mentioned Harbhajan's domination of Ponting yet, either.

    How about reverse-bunny situations? Where an otherwise quality bowler who is performing against a particular team gets taken apart by a certain bowler?

    Recent examples that come to mind are Hayden > Harbhajan and Gilchrist > Vettori. Sehwag > McGrath might just qualify, particularly if they play another series against each other. Lara's always had the best of Warne as well, although that seems to be changing just recently.

    "Bunny" should only be used when a bowler repeatedly dismisses a batsman for a low score.

    Whilst McGrath has dismissed Lara 16 or more time in tests, Lara still averages 50 vs Aus so he doesnt really qualify.

    Likewise, Flintoff dismissed Gilchrist a no. of times early on the Ashes series but by the time the Surper Series had finished, it could be argued that Gilchrist was starting to get on top of Flintoff.

    Cullinan was definitely Warne's bunny.
    Ponting was Indian spinners' in India but made them look ordinary in Aus.
    Bedser had it all over Morris but it's crazy to argue Bradman was anyone's bunny.
    Boon and Jones were Hadlee's bunnies for a period.

    Bond > Ponting .... got him out 5 out of the 6 times he's played. Heck, even Ponting's admitted it

    Bond > Ganguly

    McGrath and Warne combo > Dravid. Bar that one Calcutta innings, Dravid has looked hopeless and petrified against them
    Beneath that helmet, under that unruly curly hair, inside that cranium, there is something we don't know, something beyond scientific measure. Something that allows him to soar, to roam a territory of sport that forget us, even those who are gifted enough to play alongside him cannot even fathom. When he goes out to bat, people switch on their TV sets and switch off their lives - BBC on Sachin Tendulkar

    With McGrath and Lara, it's kind of weird. When Lara is dismissed by McGrath, he's played 14 innings, 395 runs @ 28.21. Not TERRIBLE, but considering that indicates a drop of 47% from his career average, it is quite remarkable.

    Last 2 years of his international career, he used to be brilliant early on his career.
