    I find McGrath even more of a wanker in retirement than I did when he was playing itbt.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Take away the "taking shedloads of wickets for eff all" and his appeal does rather diminish for Australians, I imagine.

    I know I keep saying it, but his fey speaking voice really ****s me. Strapping country boys from Narromine should not sound as camp as he does.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    tbf Warne was up against some pretty ****ty opponents
    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

    Yeah, if he'd been in that round with Kallis, Botha and Ajmla, reckon he would have gone through.

    Round 1, Battle 10

    Mohammad Asif (Pakistan)



    Crimes:

    - Suspended for being a drug cheat (exonerated after a lengthly boo-****ing-hoo), 2006
    - Suspended for being a drug cheat, 2009
    - Third stooge of the spot fixing scandal
    - Drug smuggling in the UAE
    - Attempted extortion of his fiance
    - Hide yo kids, hide yo wife

    "Run faster, ****er!" - Salman Butt to Asif just before he bowled his incriminating no-ball

    "I didn't do anything wrong. There was one no-ball and, whatever the scenario was behind it, I described it in the court. There are lots of things and it will be in my book, which will be launched very soon." - Foreword to Asif: It's Tough Being Me

    "It is hard to see how this could be an isolated occurrence for you." - Justice Cooke hands down his judgment on the above quote

    "I am hopeful that I will come out of the problem that I found myself in unwittingly." - Which problem, Mohammad?

    Quote Originally Posted by social View Post

    Arjuna Ranatunga (Sri Lanka)



    Crimes:

    - Chronic troll
    - BMI in triple figures
    - Six-match ban for being an omnidouche against England
    - Dodged said ban by threatening to sue the ICC
    - THAT'S RACIST
    - So is that
    - And that
    - Now Sri Lanka's deputy minister for tourism for outstanding contribution to international relations

    "You don't get a runner for being an unfit, fat ****." - Ian Healy after Ranatunga called for a runner

    "The least enjoyable match I've ever played in." - Alec Stewart on a game after Ranatunga led his players off the field for 15 minutes

    "Stand over there." - Ranatunga to umpire Ross Emerson after no-balling Murali in 1999

    "Put a Mars Bar on a good length, that should get him." - Merv Hughes

    "He was always very quick to try to gain sympathy by portraying Sri Lanka as the new kids on the block when it appeared they had become as adept as any at gamesmanship." - Shane Warne

    Quote Originally Posted by Jono View Post

    With Tony Greig sticking up for the disgusting Ranatunga.

    - Challenged Ishant Sharma to a boxing fight after the 2008 Sydney Test

    "It is striking behaviour from a man who talks regularly about himself as a committed Christian; presumably more fundamentalist than pacifist." - David Hopps

    "He is 19, why doesn't he just worry about his bowling for a while? I like the idea of actually getting into the ring. I like that, let's bring that one on." - Hayden on Sharma, Brisbane radio

I've always said had he been born 5 years earlier (and hence been too old by the time the bowling standards dropped to the paucity levels they dropped to in 2001\02 to have any recall in that period) he'd almost certainly have no Test career to speak of - probably between 10 and 20 games averaging between 20 and 30. About the same as a Graeme Wood or Andrew Hilditch.
    "It frustrates me that certain sections of humanity want to take someone like myself down." - Hayden after lurking CW

    I genuinely believed he would make the semis against any opposition save match fixers.

    One of the few 'omni****s' of cricket in terms of variety of controversies.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Haha I wouldn't be surprised if Asif won the whole thing. Put in Hayden on the same grounds as Kallis in his tendency to attract witch-hunts on CW.

    But I did want to see Warne go through, a discussion on ****s wouldn't be complete without him.
