    Round 1, Battle 11

    Brad Haddin (Australia)



    Crimes:

    - Return to the Healy standard of tact and elegance among Australian keepers
    - Incidentally, total ****
    - Cheating, Neil Broom edition
    - Slapfight with Umar Akmal
    - Crowning jewel of 47-all-out-gate

    "I don't think you're a cheat ... mate, let's get on with it. " - Daniel Vettori texts Haddin

    "I was waiting by the phone all the time and, to be honest, I would have been a prick to live with for those two weeks." - Haddin on waiting for his admission to the lifetime prick's club

    John Snow (England)



    Crimes:

    - Dropped from the Sussex side for 'not trying'
    - Barging the pure-as-fallen-snow Gavaskar
    - Only toured three times over eight years, missing most due to either hissy-fits with the board or board hissy-fits with him
    - Almost decapitating Terry Jenner
    - **** at poetry

    "Now, that's a ****ing bouncer." - Snow to Rowan Kellam, after being reprimanded for bowling a bouncer the previous ball

    "The ultimate thing in life is to play Test cricket for England." "The ultimate thing in life is death." - Snow gambhirs a dinner with Basil d'Oliveira

    “Standing
    on a still summer’s day,
    eye watching swallows
    earth-hugging
    insect-chasing away,
    wondering what to do,
    knowing that it always happens
    and now it’s happened to you.”
    - Excerpt from John Snow's MySpace

    "Sure, just let me get my shirt off and wipe away the sweat." - Snow, on being asked to apologize to Gavaskar


    Javed Miandad (Pakistan)



    Crimes:

    - Does not work or play well with others
    - Subject of a player's revolt while captain in 1982
    - Coached Pakistan, failed, so naturally the PCB reappointed him twice
    - A decent snapshot of his relationship with Imran
    - Coming out of retirement in 1996 to say he played in six World Cups, and averaging 27 striking at 51
    - PCB stooge
    - Married his daughter off to the son of a crime lord

    "Obviously when you have other sub-standard teams across the world, then surely Australia will end up being the No. 1 team." - Javed Miandad-Dickinson

    "Had it been Javed Miandad in charge, who seldom spotted a potential fire without wading in with a can of petrol, they'd probably have had to use the waste pipe on the motorised water mop as a riot cannon." - Christopher Martin-Jenkins on the 2006 forfeited Test

    "My guess is that Imran's efforts were aimed at trying to create an intrigue against my captaincy." - After not being invited to a party thrown by his BFF Imran Khan

    "Despite the injustices done to me and the conspiracies hatched against me I am still very happy with what I achieved in the game and what Pakistan cricket has given to me." - It's tough being Javed

    "What Miandad did was the most disgraceful thing I have seen on a cricket pitch." - Greg Chappell weighing the Lillee incident against witnessing Ray Bright bowl

    John Snow was a gun.

    tough choice b/w Miandad and Haddin. I think for once Miandad was right in that picture against Lillee

    so Haddin it is.

    Great work long hop. Maybe James should consider getting this thread published in the CW book
    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

    Miandad. Chippy, had a massive Napoleon complex, was a complete penis & conveniently had that villain's 'tache just in case anyone playing along at home was in any doubt who was the bad guy.
    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

    Bloody hell. Was so sure I was going to vote for Haddin after reading the first two profiles... But then hit by Miandad.

    Has to be Miandad, sadly.

    Plus the incessant protestations of innocence - a brilliant performer and the archetypal pantomime dame - he probably won't win the whole thing, but certainly wouldn't be out of place if he did - the little **** gets my vote too

    I would vote for Ranatunga & Hayden over all of these guys
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    Miandad has the advantage of having been a gigantic shunt for nearly 40 years, whereas Haddin only got 4 before getting carted out. Miandad it is (though I really wanted to include Haddin for the Broom incident).

    Haddin fairly comfortably for me.

    Gotta love "Javed' the street-fighter btw. A dead-cert for any Asian all-time XI for mine

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