    Cricket Academy Awards

    It's that time again - Academy Award time. I thought we could get into the spirit with the CW Cricket Academy Awards.

    Druing the summer in Australia every recognisable face in Aussie cricket make TV ads. They range from the brick throwingly annoying (Valvoline - you know what I mean with Ricky Ponting) to some really awful ads. sponsored by Ford with 4 quite drowned Aussie cricketers (Pup Clarke, Andy Symonds, Mat Hayden and Mr Cricket). There are also a couple with Hayden and Clarke doing very bad Richie Benaud impersonations.

    My worst cricket actor goes to Stephen Fleming for a series of Rexona ads.he did with Ricky Ponting a couple of seasons ago - my table is less wooden than that performance.

    Best cricket actor IMO is Adam Gilchrist - he is a natural. Can't remember what he has flogged lately but the ads. are usually OK.

    Who do you think are the best and worst cricket actors?

    He could just be himself. Edit: Would get him a part in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

    Reckon Ravi Shastri would be good - anyone see him on Fox last night? The black James Bond, I tells ya.

    Dravid's not too good. The WI players are all pretty decent.

    People think these helmets are to protect us from the ball, theyre not. Theyre actually to stop us from eating fillers in the middle of the pitch.

    Oh Haydos is def. the best – he’s putting so much effort into his performance – your fake tan will rub of will it pup? Worst is def Wolf Blass and Hodge

    My fav ads were the ones during the WC for Lays (chips), featuring AB de Villiers, Mark Boucher, Makhaya Ntini and Herschelle Gibbs, as well as Francois Pienaar. Silly, but Here are a couple, although there are like eight of them:

    The worst is definitely the Jacques Kallis Sanex ad, although you can't really say he's doing much acting

    LOL @ Boucher's "You can't chow me man!"

    And that Kallis ad is downright ridiculous.

    The Mr Walker adds were always funny, especially when Paul Hogan satarised (spelling)
    them
    You know it makes sense.
