    Build your own player

    Using attributes and shots/deliveries from three players who share a specialty (ie three keepers, three spinners etc) build your super player

    for example:

    Middle order batsman:
    Damien Martyn (off side strokes, aesthically pleasing style)
    Mark Waugh (leg side midwicket shot, big hitting against spin, slip fielding, off spin)
    Jacques Kallis (Zen like concentration, Medium pace bowling)

    quintessential 80's Opening Bat:
    Desi Haynes (Calypso one-legged pull shot)
    Chris Broad (Plunderer of Aussie attacks)
    David Boon (Silly mid on, Beer drinking record holder)

    The world's most effective bowler

    Bowl spin like Warne
    Bowl seam-ups like Marshall
    Ability to bowl either like Barnes
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    What New Zealand has needed for a long time:

    1. As hard to get out as Mark Richardson
    2. As capable of smashing attacks like Virender Sehwag
    3. As quick between the wickets as Brendon McCullum

    If Sehwag played as many deliveries per innings as Richardson, he'd average 97.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    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
