    SKD's Uncle Isaac.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - 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."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Hard to look past Gayle. Perhaps because I've not watched or followed Richards, not helped by fact that for most of his career I was yet to be born, anecdotes and incidents reported nevertheless. :-)

    Dhoni perhaps a contender although sometimes it seems a bit imposed.

    Well yeah you could never say that Kallis was unduly influenced by the match situation.

    Voted for Viv although I think he had a different sort of "cool" factor to him compared to Gayle.

    Lack of helmet makes Viv so much cooler.

    Gayle is the only player today who is jovial, funny, provocative, hip, easy going all while being a captain, and having a top record in ODIs and decent test record. So he is kool and successful
