    Twatto everyday of the week. A mouth MUCH bigger than his cricketing talents and that says a lot as he is very talented.

    That Watson picture is pretty good "promotion" for this poll. But it has to be Butt.

    I don't know where people get this perception from.

    Other than a couple of incidents which looked bad on the field (one in particular with the Chris Gayle issue), Watson is an absolute gentleman and is very quietly spoken. Comes off as humble and intelligent.

    Thoroughly enjoyed doing the research for my piece about Heine and Adcock and finding out just what ****s they were, but that very enjoyment convinces me that Butt has to be the winner out of these three

    Butt

    Would like to vote Ijaz Butt (he played a test I think) and also Wasim Akram for being a fixer and not helping Pak bowling after retiring. According to cricinfo recently, he was approached by the PCB recently but unfortunately doesn't have the time. WAC

    How photoshopped is Twatto's torso in that pic? His abs look like they've been drawn on.

    Must admit I'm suprised to read benchy describing him as "intelligent" too; have read more than one article openly questioning his smarts. Regardless, he might well be Stephen Hawling off the field, but the run-outs and the optmistic referrals don't speak of a deep cricketing intelligence anyway.

    Anyway: Butt by the proverbial here. Sold his country out and basically acted as a shop steward for spot fixing.

    Exactly. I've never seen why Watson rubs people up the wrong way, most cricketers have the capacity to act like a douche in one way or another.

    Well he did tell Jayawardene who's a bi of a douche at times to f*** off after Clarke took a close catch the other year.

    Also he is easily spooked.

    Still voting for Butt.

    Watson!!! I have never disliked an Australian cricketer more.

    Doesn't that particular referrer make the reference a bit invalid?

    In fairness to Watson though he's never sol out his country to get some cash. Hardly like he was poor before either was Butt.

    Could you also put Kumar Sangakkara in the list as well since he whines all the time and cheats. Also Broad.

    And Bresnan.
