    Very, very tough, but given that it looks like we'll have to put up with Ravi's bull**** for decades to come, I'm going for him.

    Quarter-final, Battle 4


    Sir Ian Botham (England)



    Crimes:

    - Single-handedly fracturing Somerset (and taking Viv Richards with him) with schoolboy antics
    - Designated troll of Sky commentary team
    - At least two extramarital affairs
    - Beating up people on airlines
    - Called out for racist abuse and ball tampering by Imran Khan, and then losing the defamation case he filed because it was true
    - Reaffirming his captaincy credentials (0:55)

    "Obvious, oafish and banal." - Simon Barnes on Botham's commentary

    "Pakistan is the sort of country to send your mother in-law to for as long as possible, all expenses paid." - Botham before the 1992 World Cup final, whereupon he made a duck and went for 6 an over

    "What have you done, what have you done?" "I've run you out, you ****." - Botham clarifies things to Geoff Boycott

    "I told him that the people around him had caused his paranoia. Botham did things in that period and afterwards that I will never forgive or forget – never." - Peter Roebuck

    "Babe, you ain't seen nothing yet! The mighty Beefy sword awaits ... and that's just for starters." - Botham in an e-mail to his mistress

    "Good job I had an understanding wife." - In an interview after said e-mail was leaked

    “[Botham was] in no way inhibited by a capacity to over-intellectualise.” - Frances Edmonds, wife of Phil

    "Botham's idea of team spirit and motivation was to squirt a water pistol at someone and go and get pissed."- Ray Illingworth

    "The only thing Botham would know about dawn runs is staggering back from the pub." - Graham Gooch

    "At one point it looked like he’d found me a role in a movie, playing a psychopathic killer, but it never got made." - Botham recalls his meeting with film director Tim Hudson

    "We hadn't half his talent, so what were we supposed to think?" - Peter Willey on Botham's twattish behaviour on a West Indies tour

    Quote Originally Posted by benchmark00 View Post

    Chappelli: How long have you been working on that one? Good to hear you’re still a ****ing idiot
    Botham: Right, let’s settle this right here

    Before they can, channel nine minder steps between them"

    Nothing.

    I just don't like the prick.

    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


    "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 love cricket: it is something that runs through me in my veins and my blood." - Along with THC

    "I seriously expected a bravery award after what I have done." - Asif's ex-girlfriend after testifying on his spot-fixing

    "He is a friendly and nice guy. I was shocked to hear about the allegations, so I dropped him from the film." - Bollywood director about Asif starring in a movie promoting friendship between India and Pakistan

    "It is definite that he committed the crime as he was caught red-handed ... however in certain cases and for a faster litigation process the Public Prosecution drops a case due to insignificance and deports the suspect." - PCB, who else?

    "Mohammad Asif is a superstar of Pakistan and we should not leave him alone over there [Dubai] and should not spare any effort to bring him back. We request the president and the premier to intervene in the matter and bring back the superstar." - Pakistani senator Zafar Iqbal Chaudhary

    Quote Originally Posted by social View Post

    How about precise footwork?



    Also if Asif was that much of a ****, why didn't he mankad Cook?
