    True. But Klusener cost Cronje thousands at the 99 World Cup. He sabotaged the batting line up only for Klusener to club a different result. Cronje was told to protect Gibbs as he was just as guilty as Cronje I believe. Even that drop catch........
    Twenty-over cricket can be “boring”. It has grown up. It takes concentration. It is no longer a game for the post-literate generation. They need the distractions, the loud music to disguise the boredom. They never warned you about that.

    First time I have read this thread but this is a serious WTF?

    Bailey was boring BUT:

    Steve Waugh is "allegedly" one of the biggest ****s ever to don the baggy green: and

    Viv is "allegedly" a bona fide racist

    Give me boring every time over these 2 "alleged" arseholes

    Just found this forum and spent the afternoon going through this whole thread - entertaining stuff! Just don't say anything to the manager...

    Good to see a certain IT Botham making a name for himself here. Always thought he was a bullying big-headed so-and-so who can't commentate for toffee. And that Grace fellow was a rum old cad of the first order, what what!

    Somehow sense it's going to be a matchfixer who ultimately wins this though. Will enjoy how it unfolds...

    What about Lillee and Marsh betting in 1981 against themselves?

    Round of 16, Battle 3

    *Brushes cobwebs*

    It appears popcorn stocks are soaring, so let's capitalise with a master vs. apprentice showdown:


    Salman Butt (Pakistan)



    Crimes:

    - Evil enough to vanquish Shane Watson in Round 1
    - Match/spot fixing/corruption in the core of his very soul etc.
    - Giving a scoop to News of the World without them even needing to hack his phone
    - Cronjesque tendencies in co-opting younger players to do his bidding


    "I had always asked him to have his hair cut, but he never listened to me. Then how was he ready to do such a big thing [at my behest]?" - Butt on how he couldn't possibly have influenced Mohammad Amir to spot-fix

    “It may be easy for some people to say that a five-year ban from cricket is all right but what they don’t realise is that for a sportsman like me – this is like a lifetime ban.” - Butt lays down the #yolo defence in his last stand against the ban, February 2013

    "Dear Salman...you are a disappointment and a disgrace. Yet when I address you as "dear", it is not a hypocritical pleasantry." - Saan Shafqat

    "I was so angry with Salman. He took advantage of my friendship. And I used to respect him like an elder brother." - Mohammad Amir

    "They were the ones who actually approached me. This is the beauty of it. I was friends with them for four to five years, and then they said this happens. I said, 'Really?'" - Mazhar Majeed, the facilitating bookie who fell for the News of the World sting

    Quote Originally Posted by Flem274* View Post

    And the winner, from one of our more gullible moderators:

    Salim Malik (Pakistan)




    Crimes:

    - Advertising liability to Brylcreem
    - Darth Sidious of match-fixing
    - Throwing away a 100-Test career to do so
    - Demanding a job as Pakistan batting coach after all this miscellany
    - How unfortunate
    - Rashid Latif resigned in protest after hearing about Malik's lobbying for coach, then re-applied after Malik was told to **** off by PCB

    "You know better than me." - Malik when asked if cricket in the 1990s was corrupt

    "My first instinct was disgust that this low-life of a prick thought that loyalty to my country was for sale." - Steve Waugh after receiving an offer from Malik, before a match that Australia lost by one wicket

    "Because they are white, I am sorry to say, and I am black I am out of cricket and they're still playing. There are many incidents. A couple of other white people are still playing. All the fault is with the Asian side." - Malik alleging racism in sport

    "It was just like we are today," he said. "We were sitting in a room together...but the thing about white players is you can't trust them. The bastards have weird minds." - Malik proving racism in sport

    "After being stuffed by 157 runs, Intikhab thought a group hug was in order. Latif told the court he was willing to embrace Malik but Malik 'did not respond positively.'" - Gideon Haigh

    "A Test cricketer like me doesn't need any coaching course or any certificate. I have the ability to help the batsmen overcome their problems, which have been the main hurdle in team's performance." - Salim offers to help players cheat more efficiently

    Salman Butt is an angel compared to Malik.

    Real toughie actually. Both bent, so the decision rests on their other (de)merits.

    I remember the weirdly hollow feeling on the Sunday of the 4th test after the NotW broke the "no-balls for sale" thing. England duly completed a massive victory, but it somehow didn't matter. Felt most sorry for Broad and Trott, who'd strung together a cricket innings when things looked to be heading south but which will be forever bracketed with the spot fixing.

    On the whole tho, I think Malik was probably a malign influence on the Pakistan team and, indeed, Pakistani cricket, for longer than Butt was.

    Tough one this - I'll just even things up a bit -

    Salman Butt

    Butt definitely showed enough to indicate that given a few more years he'd have surpassed Malik, but ultimately he was caught too soon and didn't get the chance to make this title his own so, in many ways regrettably, it has to be Salim Malik for me

    really lol'd at this

    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, awta.

    It is difficult to beat Salim Malik but Salman Butt does it for the aforementioned reasons.
