    It's perhaps fitting that the sport's greatest exponent gives his name to an adjective that's used to describe feats of scarcely credible dominance over one's peers and/or opposition.

    Sir Donald Bradman : "Bradmanesque".

    Other eponymously named terms seem all peculiar to cricket, but from the top of my head there's "Chinaman" (Puss Achong), "Bosie" (Bernard Bosenquet) &, most recently, the "Dilscoop" (Tilikaratne Dilshan).
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."
    - The Guardian's Andrew Anthony

    yes.....he has entertained a few times......I remember the final of the ICC Champions trophy in 1998. He was pretty good in that match
    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
