    Which famous cricketers have you played cricket with/against?

    Seeing Roger Telemachas playing against our first team today gave me the idea for this thread. Apart from him, there's Devang Gandhi the ex Indian player.

    EDIT: Just seen the title, can't edit, rather than for its with.

    Played against John Crawley during his Lancashire days, he was coming back from a broken finger so was playing for the MCC against our school. Needless to say he pretty much smacked everyone about, smashed one of the teachers car windows (and refused to pay for it!)

    A tenuous effort.

    Darryl Tuffey, Ian Butler and Peter McGlashan all play in my competition. So far though I've only played against Butler, because I wasn't in the Prems when we played against Weymouth (Tuffey and McGlashan's club).

    What a tight git.

    Would have loved to have seen what happened if it had been the other way around.

    Same team:

    Stuart Clark
    Jason Krejza
    Dom Thorneley (my dad coached him)
    Josh Mangan (if you consider him famous)

    Against:

    Aaron Bird
    Corey Richards
    Greg Mail
    Moises Henriques


    All, except for Henriques and Mangan, played in my team because the NSW blues come to my home town and play an exhibition match every year, where local players are selected to play. I was lucky enough to play in the Thornely captained team.
