    I've gone for Warnie. His performances in the 1999 world cup are among some of the best cricketing moments in my memory.

    Hogg would actually be a deserved winner here strangely enough - the guy was a champion at WCs.

    I'll go for Warne, ahead of Hogg and Murali. Shan't get into the whole Warne vs. Murali debate again in order to justify why, besides noting that in considering WC matches only, as we are here, the statistics are even or technically slightly in Warne's favour, rather than the reverse. Plus Warne is a better batsman, so given they're pretty close in bowling terms, that might tip it. (of course, taking that rationale further, i should therefore select Hogg)...

    I reckon Saqlain would have been in with a shout too. I've gone for Murali.

    Warne by a mile. Best overall record and best finals record. Most unbelievable performances in 1996 and 1999. Warne is God.

    BTW Pasag, how much did Sanz give you to close that thread?

    Why are you acting like a dickhead at 4:17am?

    You are really worse than anyone can possibly imagine.

    I just hope that James is watching and gives you a well deserved Ban.

    It's 3am. I catch up most of my work late. What're you doing up at 5am?

    You are an absolute disgrace. The hypocrisies you put forth then take back...and you have the nerve to comment about me.

    I was having a poke at Pasag, it didn't need to descend into this.

    Unfortunately, we have kids running around and mixing themselves up instead of deleting/merging and clearing threads.
