    "I wish you were a statue and I was a pigeon"

    Yabba's legendary sledge - supposedly to the Nawab of Pataudi during his 5.5 hour century in the first test of the bodyline series

    Which 21st Century player is most deserving?

    Think I'd be nailing Harbhajan to the plinth myself. He ususally seems somewhere near the centre of a lot of the grubby little contretemps that have plauged the sport of late.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
