    that's a tough one
    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

    Border. Though its not by a mile, the more I think about it the closer it gets. A couple of spectacular innings by Waugh make it very close for me ( 200 v WI, twin tons in 1997- especially day one, 160 vs SA in 1997, the 98 in Pakistan 1994).

    Have to go with Border due to the pitch conditions he batted under, plus he was under enormous pressure for a lot of his career.

    I tend to rate the one-man army sorta batsmen higher than similarly great batsmen who had others to help around them.. So going with AB here..

    SR Waugh's record against Pak is quite ordinary. AB is not that hot against WI but the WI team of the border era was probably the greatest team in the history of the game.
