    One Last Sight

    John Warr once said "if one were granted one last wish in cricket, it would be the sight of Ray Lindwall opening the bowling in a Test match."

    If you were granted one final sight in cricket, what would you choose to see?

    Is this fantasy or something that did happen?

    If the former Douglas Jardine batting against Lillee and Thomson in 74/75

    If the latter Stan McCabe's batting in the first Test of the Bodyline series

    ff, I was more referring to an actual event but both are interesting. Would have loved to have seen Trumper bat myself. Hammond's off-side play springs to mind too

    Steyn having an incredibly fiery spell against a batsman. Kind of Donald-Atherton - style.

    Oh, and Jacques Kallis in an aggressive mood.

    Real Life:
    Bodyline series. Are we allowed an entire series?

    Fantasy:
    An attack of Marshall-Ambrose-Khan-Warne-Muralitharan bowling to Hobbs-Hutton-Bradman-Tendulkar-Richards-Sobers-Gilchrist.

    Actually on reflection if I had one cricketing wish it would be to umpire, with Zaremba obviously, a single wicket competition involving benchmark00, GIMH, sledger, furball, grecian, brumbers, Richard and Sylvester Clarke

    Sachin Tendulkar and Garry Sobers batting against Wasim Akram and Clarrie Grimmett.
    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
    - Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)

    Waqar, Wasim, Imran and Akhtar on a reverse swinging minefield against the Indian batting greats of the 90's.

    I think India had better batting greats in the 80s and 00s rather than the 90s didn't they?

    I would like to see Bradman Wasim, Waqar, and Imran have a go at Bradman with a reverse swinging old ball
    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
