    Your Guilty Cricket Player Pleasures. Lay 'em on the Table Guys

    What players do you enjoy watching play who you really shoudn't?

    Inspired by this from the tuning in to watch thread;

    I look forward to watch Afridi bat eventhough I know he will be walking back in the next 11 balls.If I get a news tomorrow that Aamer and Asif ban has been overturned I will be happily back to rooting for them.

    I am also secretly hoping for failures of Broad,Watto,Yuvraj,Bhajji,Trott,and Gambhir.

    Shiv Chanderpaul. Everyone thinks he's an ugly batsman, but I find his batting style fascinating. It's like.... a mongoose toying with a cobra!

    the perverse pleasure of watching tavare bat is something that has resulted in many hours of self flagellation.

    yes, yes, i know it sounds awful.
    i know i am god. since when i pray i find i am talking to myself.

    Far from a guilty pleasure, IMO.

    Mohammad Asif. I know I should despise him because he's comically evil but I can't. He's too good. Match-fixing drug-taking tearaways are supposed to be sporadically brilliant and unpredictable, not insanely disciplined and intelligent. His off-field and on-field personas just don't match up.

    I've always found tall ungainly opening batsmen whose techniques make batting look incredibly difficult to be a source of grim fascination - New Zealander Trevor Franklin and West Indian Adrian Griffith being the two prime examples

    Always thought Ajit Agarkar had a nice bowling action.

    Always thought I enjoyed Jimmy and Swann destroying us in the Ashes a little too much.

    And Graeme Smith. Have nothing but good things to say about him after that second innings in Sydney.

    Used to really like watching Nasser Hussain and Mark Butcher bat for the English, and Mark Ealham with his dobblers.

    - Mohammed Sami - Everyone says he's rubbish and all but I love watching the guy run in and bowl quick.
    - Tino Best - Found him entertaining despite him being below par generally.
    - I'm also a big fan of Anderson's action.
    - Virat Kohli - Despite hating his personality and all that, I think he really is one amazing batsman.
