    Jack sent an email to Cricinfo requesting they change his profile pic last year iirc. Not sure what thread it was.

    Maybe Imran should do the same.

    They have 21 pages of Hayden pics, yet they choose the one of him holding his leg...

    Surely Beefy provided more career highlights than this photo

    It's probably just the time but I find a lot of West Indian cricketers from the early 1970s (Bernard Julien, Lawrence Rowe etc.) sport a hairstyle simply unrecogniseable today.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    That one isn't bad, this one below was his pic for ages and made me laugh.
    It was zoomed in on his face

    And was taken just 5 years after his Under-19 profile pic. Looking at them without knowledge, you'd tend to guess there was more like 25 years between them than 5.

    Small had a neck?

    Surely the most odd looking fast bowler of recent times.

    Have you ever seen any other pics of him?

    It'd be bloody hard to make him look like he had a neck.
