    Round 1, Battle 2

    Some worthy contenders chucked in, along with an ATG. Remember, it's not so much about who defiles the spirit of the game the most (unless that's your sole criterion) but who gives you the most primal reaction of pure, unadulterated rage.

    Johan Botha (South Africa)



    Crimes:

    - Well, duh.

    'NO BAAAALLLL!' - Completely impartial Gabba crowd, 1st Twenty20 between Australia and South Africa, 2006

    'I think the ultimate solution will be if they can have an on-field measurement, but that's very difficult with the clothing and the different camera angles' - Botha on why he can't afford a jumper


    Saeed Ajmal (Pakistan)



    Crimes:

    - An ultimately unflattering doosra.
    - Actually being supported by the PCB

    ‘The authorities are now allowing these mystery spinners, unorthodox off-spinners, to bend their elbows to a degree. If they are going to be allowed to do this England should be saying, “Shouldn’t we be teaching our young spinners to bowl like that as well?” - Bob Willis

    'Someone is telling me my action is bad but the ICC allow me to bowl 23.5 degrees because my arm is not good but that’s my problem.' - Saeed Ajmal on his terrible orthopedic surgeon


    Jacques Kallis (South Africa)



    Crimes, according to the mainstream media:

    - Not many

    Crimes, according to CricketWeb:

    Love Ajmal and feel indifferent towards Botha, so selfish Kallis it is.

    hilarious thread

    Botha.....

    I love Ajmal
    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

    Would vote any from the first battle over any of these three.

    Guess I'll go for Botha but don't dislike any of 'em.

    Would have voted Twatto in a heartbeat.

    Really tough one here. Ajmal seems like too nice of a bloke. Botha clearly chucks it but he's still pretty **** compared to spinners with cleaner actions, I almost feel sorry for him. Like why's he doing it when it doesn't even make him better than those who don't throw?

    I'll have to go with Kallis then. For being arguably the greatest all-round cricketer of his generation and still not managing to excite anyone. Get some flair ffs.

    Well harsh on Kallis being in this. Don't actually like the bloke but aside from being slightly bland in his public utterances and (allegedly, etc) a bit dim the worst you can say is he's selfish and not to everyone's taste (including mine) as a batsman.

    Hard to split Murali's two bastards tho. Both have truly, truly awful actions. Think I'll go with Botha as he's actually been banned from bowling his wrong 'un and has the face of a Waffen SS Panzer commander.

    I find it almost impossible to form a view on Kallis who is by far the most impressive cricketer I have ever felt totally indifferent about - Ajmal I actually rather like, its hardly his fault if he's allowed to get away with his doosra, so that, on the same basis as for brumbers, leaves Botha
