    Afridi is the greatest living cricketer. His presence blights this whole thing.

    If by stupid you mean cream boundaries through the offside, he's already done that. Many times.

    Kohli should play without a shirt on itbt.

    Round 1, Battle 5

    Sir Donald Bradman (Australia)



    Crimes:

    - General detachment and aloofness from teammates
    - Opposed pay rises for cricketers who then defected to WSC
    - Missing his round despite being loaded at the time
    - Trying to get Fleetwood-Smith, McCabe, Fingleton and O'Reilly perma-dropped from Test cricket for being 'insubordinate' (and incidentally, Catholic)
    - Own son changed his surname to 'Bradson' out of sheer annoyance of springing from his loins

    'Bradman's playing philosophy – that cricket should not be a career, and that those good enough could profit from other avenues – also seems to have borne on his approach to administration.' - Gideon Haigh

    'With these fellows out of the way, the loyalty of my 1948 side was a big joy and made a big contribution to the outstanding success of that tour.' - The man himself

    'He was a very fine bat.' - Jack Fingleton, when asked about his personal relationship with the Don


    Sir Ian Botham (England)



    Crimes:

    - Single-handedly fracturing Somerset (and taking Viv Richards with him) with schoolboy antics
    - Designated troll of Sky commentary team
    - At least two extramarital affairs
    - Beating up people on airlines
    - Called out for racist abuse and ball tampering by Imran Khan, and then losing the defamation case he filed because it was true

    'What have you done, what have you done?' 'I've run you out, you ****.' - Botham clarifies things to Geoff Boycott

    'I told him that the people around him had caused his paranoia. Botham did things in that period and afterwards that I will never forgive or forget – never.' - Peter Roebuck

    'Babe, you ain't seen nothing yet! The mighty Beefy sword awaits ... and that's just for starters.' - Botham in an e-mail to his mistress


    Andrew Symonds (Australia)



    Crimes:

    - What we were all thinking
    - Missing an entire training camp because it was fishing season
    - Turning up hungover the day Australia lost to Bangladesh
    - Naked assault

    'He can go home then!' - Ricky Ponting after learning about Roy's nighttime adventures

    'The main concern from us is Andrew's commitment, to playing for this team and, in my opinion and I know the rest of the leadership team's opinion, you need to be committed 100 per cent.' - Michael Clarke

    'Yep, we love to hate them, but he's the lump of ****, sorry, lump of cow dirt, that people are thinking of.' - Symonds stuck between two metaphors re: Brendon McCullum

    Can't stand Symonds, but he scores a vital point because Michael Clarke dislikes him.

    Botham it is.

    Beefy, though Roy's a gun choice too.

    Bradman sounded like a ****, but he's still a genius.
    5-0

    Wow, stiff round.

    I think Bradman's less than glorious war service record might've warranted a mention too. Invalided out of the army with symptoms that Charles Williams's bio suggest were psychosomatic.

    Not to mention his dubious reputation as a stock trader.

    Or his persistent attempts to traduce Larwood as a chucker.

    Actually, **** it, it's a walkover: Bradman.
