    Fairest Players

    Which players do you think play most in the spirit of the game?
    I guess there are plenty of players. Dravid comes into my head. I'm trying to think of the guys that are really good players too.
    life's a gift thats why they call it the present

    In the current Indian lineup, only two players imo have an extremely superb cricket spirit - Dravid and Tendulkar.

    I think in the NZ side Daniel Vettori has a great attitude. Not impressed with the shirt hanging out, noticed this in the current test.

    oh dear mark richardson just been bowled... (which has no relevance)

    Yeah, Gilchrist I was thinking of as the best of the Aussies. A good role model. Positive, enjoys himself, fit and healthy, great player. Got a lot of time for Gilchrist.

    In my opinion

    India: Dravid, Tendulkar, Srinath, VVS Laxman

    Australia: Gilchrist, Ponting (as of late), Damien Fleming (pre-retirement), Steve Waugh (sometimes)

    Pakistan: Rashid Latif, Aamir Sohail (pre-retirement)

    South Africa: Gary Kirsten, Jacques Kallis

    New Zealand: Vettori, Fleming, Richardson, Cairns

    Zimbabwe: Andy Flower, Heath Streak, Henry Olonga (pre-retirement)

    West Indies: Carl Hooper (pre-retirement), Jimmy Adams (the same), Sherwin Campbell, Shiv Chanderpaul

    Sri Lanka: Sanath Jayasuriya, Marvan Atapattu, Hashan Tillekeratne, Mahela Jayawardene

    Kenya: Steve Tikolo, Thomas Odoyo, Ravindu Shah

    Thats all i can think up of right now

    Except that Rashid Latif got banned for five matches for that claming a catch that wasnt.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    True mate, very true

    I forgot about that one to be completely honest. But in his 15+ year career he's been on of the 'fairer' pakistani's.

    *Is a little annoyed at Sangrah's implicit labelling of all the England side as not being sporting*

    Brian Lara has built up a reputation to walk when he knows he is out. Jimmy Adams was always a very well-behaved player. Special note of Jacobs also.

    Then there is Courtney Andrew Walsh...
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

    Not just that but he trusts players too. Remember Steve Waugh's catch in 1995? I thought it was out after watching it but if I was out there, there would have been no way I would have walked like he did.

    Also, Lara is fair when it comes to catches he takes.

    Lara would have to be my pick for the fairest for sure. Gilchrist would be somewhere on par.
