    His record's actually still pretty good in ODIs, averages 47 at a strike rate of 80something. Admittedly he did have some trouble against Aus, leading to his axing.

    He was only 'axed' because Smith returned.

This better be last chance saloon for Gibbs. Ah, who am I kidding, somebody high up loves the guy, he's probably being lined up to replace JP in the tests.

    Indeed, I wish our youngsters emulated this genteel person. What humility! My favorite cricketer after Sachin at the moment.

    As I've said before, he has a dodgy technique guys

    It'll be some good, some bad before a lot of bad towards the end of his career as his eyes fail him

    As with every player. TBF has been fairly consistent over the last 3 years.

    Wouldn't say that's consistent tbf. Has only averaged 40-60 in 3 series. The rest fluctutates between pretty average ~36 or less, or awesome. (61, 78, 91, 145, 490)

    Stand by this.

    The bumfluffy bits at the side of his gob really ruin the whole effect.

    Irritates me when people say it's a great beard; it's actually a shyte one. Mushtaq Ahmed has a beard, Saeed Anwar has a beard; Hamish looks a teenager trying by comparison.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Was just Googling and found this pic of Hamish from 2004:



    Used to be not bad looking when he had some hair. Beard looks infinitely better too.

    Good bump ....

    Interesting read ... average in the mid 30s ... dodgy technique .... will never be a great player . Some big names in this as well.

    So good to see I am not the only one getting it wrong sometimes ...

    To start with I think he is a wonderful sportsman - now that counts 80% already.
    He has bags full of talent and he is a hard worker. Combine that with a humble attitude and a will to learn every day and you have the making of an all time great. One of my favourites right now without a doubt.
    regards
