    You mean the brutally effective OD matchwinner, the most dangerous hitter of his time Lance Klusener? I don't think anyone will forget him

    When you think of forgotton cricketers, you usually mean people you can't remember or heard of, and never hear about. Intresting you mention that, our 3rd Grade team had a debate with the best players to play for all the major cricketing countries and we agreed that he was the best Zimbarbwiewan player

    I don't think Andy Flower forgotten he gets mentioned alot, especially when people talk about how crap Zimbabwe are.

    Avishka Gurasingha for me, very good batsmen but retired at his peck due to off field reasons. If he kept going on i think he would have been remembered as one of Sri Lanka greats.
