    Who do you think is the most underrated player?

    Gavin Hamilton of Scotland. He performed better than Sachin in World Cup 1999. Best all rounder around. Better than Chris.

    Can I just say, Gavin Hamilton couldn't keep up with Sachin Tendulkar if he had two rockets glued to his feet!

    Hamilton is justand ordinary, county trundler who just runs up, turns hi arm over and lets go. All of this is coming from a Yorkshire fan! Of course he's the best Scottish cricket player, he's the only reasonable one!
    There's only one Darren Gough!

    David Fulton...

    I'm gonna say Habibul Bashar of Bangladesh. He's made 9 50s in 10 Tests which isn't bad going.

    Neil, I'm not sure why, but I've got a feeling that you kind of like David Fulton, strange.......

    Not particularly, I'm just frustrated that the selectors rarely give anyone a chance of playing for their country on the back of County Championship performances...

    He could score 520* in the opener next year and still Butcher would be picked ahead of him even if he got a king pair.

    Hey Neil. Did you get Wisden or The Cricketer last month (can't remember which) because there was a bit about Fulton in that.

    Gavin Hamilton isn't ordinary according to me. Wish if he played more.

    I never thought Mark Ealham was given his due. He was a much better batsman and bowler than people seemed to think.

    DARREN LEHMANN. No explanation needed (SURELY!).

    Doug Marillier.

    Richardo Powell. Man this guy can hit a ball and is awesome.

    Mushtaq Ahmed is such a good bowler, he seems to be brought in to the Pakistan side occasionally, bowl brilliantly then get left out again. I reckon hes far better than Saqlain.
    But then I am a leggie.
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present
