    The "Loose" XI

    Gamblers, cheaters, fools, sexters, texters etc.

    Sid Barnes- Combined weirdness with skill like few others.
    WG Grace- Cheater, would replace the bails after being bowled. Old world charm? Nup, cheat.
    KP- Texting someone he shouldn't, and being a tool.
    Mark Waugh- Cash for "weather" reports.
    Hansie Cronje- Took bribes, then died.
    Chris Lewis- Dobbed on teammates for something, then got sprung smuggling cocaine.
    Rod Marsh- Bet against his own team in a live match.
    Shane Warne- Sexting nurses, diet pills from his mum.
    Colin Croft- Toured apartheid SA as a black man. Way to go!
    Dennis Lillee- Bet against his own team in a live match.
    Mohammed Asif- Took $$ to bowl no-balls. Sullied the fine (*cough*) name of Pakistani cricket.
    I shiver, thinking how easy it is to be totally wrong about people - to see one tiny part of them and confuse it for the whole, to see the cause and think its the effect or vice versa.

    Azahar over Waugh for me. Always a bit surprised on well Croft is treated by Former players considering how he left the team.

    Lack of Warwick Armstrong is surpriing considering he once bowled two consecutive overs while captain having just successfully protested an English declaration for being illegal under obscure rules. Also vaguely remember hearing he usede the morally dubious (but at the time perfectly legal) method of spending 15 minutes trial bowling to run out time and stop England from getting the 20 runs they needed (with plenty of wickets in hand) to level an ashes series.

    No fan of KP myself (I know everyone's shocked) but anyone involved in match-fixing get's ahead of him, TBH not wildly happy about rebel tourists either. Oh underarm too. Oh and Warnes gun for the sexting nurses obvs.
    Do I contradict myself?
