    My favourite players of the last 10 years are Rahul Dravid and Adam Gilchrist.

    I don't expect to see a truly beautiful cover drive again once Dravid retires.

    I would like to thank all posters of streams of live cricket wherever and whoever they are.
    Hi.

    As far as cover driving goes, Kallis is not too far behind Dravid, is he?

    Kallis is very fine (and he's not getting any younger either), but Dravid is a touch more elegant when driving.

    I am sorry but you guys seemed to have missed Mark Waugh playing the cover drive
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Mark Waugh playing a glance off his legs was pretty special, but I'll always prefer Dravid driving.

    I was under the impression that the discussion was about currently active players.

    If we are prepared to go down the history lane, don't think Mark Waugh's would be among the first dozen or so names that come to mind when exquisite cover driving is being contemplated.

    It was more a point that techniques seem to be getting less and less aesthetically pleasing.

    Agreed. The two most aesthetically pleasing batsmen today, Dravid and Kallis are both in the evening of their careers. VVS too is a treat to watch, though he's certainly not text book.

    Among the current lot, I really hope that Ian Bell makes it big.

    I think Tendulkar has to take a great deal of blame for this; it started with him and the way he started redefining batting technique as his career evolved.

    But he has always had an excellent technical base and is usually well-balanced to start with. Some of the younger players haven't got that to begin with (or at least in Australia, it's beginning to look like that). It's kind of a top-down approach which is the wrong way to go about it.

    I agree about Bell, he can make for very fine viewing when he is in form.
