    Battle of the Infamous

    Not enough blind hate in Cricket Chat these days, so let's start a battle for us to vent at the players we despise the most.

    I think over the past 11 years we've discussed at least 64 cricketers as contenders for the highest tier of douchebag, but I'm happy to settle for 48 and condense the thing into four rounds by starting with 3-ways.

    Remember, people can be condemned for anything from match-fixing to ball-tampering to racial abuse to being a flat-track bully to not signing your kid's autograph to crediting one's success to Swisse Ultivite. Nothing is sacred.

    Nominate:

    1. Hansie Cronje
    2. Ricky Ponting
    3. Mohammad Asif
    4. Salim Malik
    5. Shane Warne
    6. Steve Waugh
    7. Harbhajan Singh
    8. Douglas Jardine
    9. Sourav Ganguly
    10. Matthew Hayden
    11. WG Grace
    12. Roger Harper
    13. Don Bradman
    14. Roy Gilchrist
    15. Kevin Pietersen
    16. Johan Botha (shoutout to Brumbers)
    17. Saeed Ajmal (see above)
    18. Richard Hadlee

    19. Sreesanth
    20. Virat Kohli

    21. Warwick Armstrong
    22. Neil Adcock
    23. Ian Healy
    24. Andy Roberts
    25. Mohammad Azharuddin
    26. Trevor Bailey
    27. Tony Greig
    28. Viv Richards
    29. Dennis Lillee
    30. John Snow
    31. Salman Butt
    32. Javed Miandad

    33. Ian Botham
    34. Greg Chappell
    35. Ian Chappell
    36. Geoff Boycott
    37. Andrew Symonds

    38. Sunil Gavaskar
    39. Shane Watson
    40. Michael Clarke
    41. Jacques Kallis
    42. Brad Haddin
    43. Colin Croft
    44. Glenn McGrath
    45. Adam Parore
    46. Suresh Raina

    47. Arjuna Ranatunga
    48. Shoaib Akhtar

    Nominate Sreesanth and Kohli.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    The idea here is to concentrate the venom into one thread.

    And maybe get some dirt on players we haven't heard before.

    We may have to pre-emptively expand this to 96 seeds when Burgey logs on.

    Honestly, there are obvious exceptions - but it's just so boring. I could just say that I saw Dravid give me a scowl at the end of a day's play when the opposition were 500-1 and come to my own judgements about the man - but that would be unfair.

    Good calls. Can't believe I hadn't thought of Ranatunga earlier.

    Much as I'd like to, I think we can get enough from individual cricketers.

    We can't have unfair advantages (although a BCCI/PCB final would be a sight to behold).
