    The Perfect Cricketer

    This is a game that involves naming aspects of players that they pull off unusually well in a quest to build the 'perfect' cricketer. For instance,

    The perfect cricketer would have........the conversion rate of Stephen Fleming
    An outswinger like Shane Watson
    The concentration of Shahid Afridi


    Obviously these aren't true, but you get the idea.

    Only one aspect per post, please!

    I'll start proceedings:
    The perfect cricketer would have.......The hook shot of Viv Richards
    "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.

    There was only one cricketer who can be called perfect relative to the other cricketers in history - Garfield Sobers.
