    Tuffers. He won tests in England and NZ (especially before we forced him to bowl defensively to compensate for the crap seam bowling of the day) whereas Giles' matchwinning performances were mainly in Pakistan and against the crap 2004 Windies team. But if they both started their careers at the same time under D Fletcher, we know who would get picked.
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...
    Arise Sir Beefy....

    The serious nature of this means that there is no irrelevent third option.

    Have always thought Tufnell's bowling defensively had more to do with his own fragile mental state (and the way he was played) than the Ilotts, Benjamins, etc.

    Sorry mate, that's not my intention. Just having a bit of fun. The Aussie-Pom rivalry is one of my favourites, and I remember how horrible it was when you had the Ashes. So I'm just giving back what I got during that time
