    Entertaining read and the author deserves credit for resisting comparing Ollie to Falstaff, which, judging by other articles on the big fella, one might think is a legal obligation.

    - 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

    What makes someone your personal hero, cricketing or otherwise, is entirely subjective and totally personal. If number of Test appreances is your main concern, then I assume your hero would be Steve Waugh.

    Each and anyone can be heroic to each and anyone.

    For instance Fred Trueman's hero was Wilfred Rhodes even though he never saw him play cricket.

    Actually his last Test was at Karachi, so not quite all on home soil.
