    Shoaib and Afridi when they get going, amazing to watch. Also enjoy watching Lara, Ponting and Gilchrist. McCullum in the last 10 overs of an ODI can be great to watch too.

    I've always enjoyed watching Warne leaving batsmen confused, and after seeing him in the Super Test the same goes for Murali as well and watching Shoaib when he's going is amazing.
    Batting wise, Gilchrist's brute force, Steve Waugh's determination and KP and Afridi's hitting are always enjoyable

    In my time of watching cricket, I'd say my top 3 bowlers I enjoy watching the most have been Shoaib, Warne and Murali.

    For Batsman, Sachin and Lara comfortably head the list, and one must feel that (as someone suggested earlier) they can't leave the room when Afridi is out to bat. So he'd have to make the list, as he just defines entertainment.

    In terms of players that have inspired me, Dravid would have to head that list. Every year he just adds layers to why he's my idol. This year, the way he's handled the pressure of captaincy despite all the crap surrounding it with Ganguly and Chappell is really amazing. Add that to his brilliant patience and concentration, and his ability to save India on many occasions, he defines inspiration for me. The fact that he's generally a nice guy and is so modest makes him even better.

    Most influence on me: Slater's 219 got me into watching cricket
    Most inspirational: Steve Waugh
    Player to cause my amputation: Brian Lara, the best batsman or my generation in full flow would be magnificent to see.

    Sadly I've never seen Waugh, Slater, Lara or Tendulkar score 100 at the ground. In fact I've never seen any of them bat.
    Supported XI
    Tamim Iqbal, JA Burns, UT Khawaja, *SPD Smith, Mahmudullah, C de Grandhomme, +AT Carey, PJ Cummins, Rashid Khan, Mustafizur Rahman, JP Behrendorff.

    RIP Fardin. RIP Craigos. RIP Prince.

    Shoaib is definitely the most exciting bowler in the world today; his amazing slow ball has put him to another level altogether. Murali and Warne are a little behind him.

    There are many exciting stroke players in the world today but at his best I think Sachin is the most fun to watch. I especially love his seemingly defensive pushes which go for four.

    As far as "inspiration", Steve Waugh and Kumble for building great careers from limited talent. Rahul Dravid who exudes class on and off the field.

    Lara and Laxman for their ability to almost invent strokes, they're both amazing. Bowling wise -Warne, Shaoib, Flintoff, Kumble and the old Gillespie

    I agree with most of the above post.
    Though Dravid seems to be buckling a bit under captaincy in the Tests - or maybe it is too soon to tell.

    Actually i like watching any bowler bowl as long as they arn't spraying it around the pitch. For batsmen, i like to watch almost every batsman out there who isnt mis-timing their shots or playing-and-missing with alarming regularity.

    I love watching Sehwag and Rana Naved - the way they defy accepted convention and still come off with success.
