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.
That Richard quote gets me every time. With Jono on this.
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
CAPE TOWN ARE YOU READY TO PARTAYYYY
'It is hard to recall a batsman quite so serene, so unrushed, so unflappable.' Chris Ryan on ... look to the left. Ahhhh.

"The Australian cricket captain is the Prime Minister Australia wishes it had. Steve Waugh is that man, Michael Clarke is not." - Jarrod Kimber
RIP Fardin Qayyumi and Craig Walsh - true icons of CricketWeb.
Quarter-final, Battle 4
Sir Ian Botham (England)
- 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

- 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

Has to be Asif, at least Botham has some redeem factors about him Asif has none.
