    Best ALL ROUND cricketer

    So we have had threads on best all rounder, best bowling all rounder but which fatty has been the best?

    I reckon you will struggle to find a better bat than Inzamam.

    Maybe we could make a team of tubbies.

    Yeah, true enough. He was still pretty gun even when he was a fat **** though, so he qualifies IMO.

    Yeah, people forget that most of his fame was earned before people typically took photos.

    Here's a fairly early one

    Are we setting a basic cut-off of fatness and then only considering cricketing skillz or are we giving both variables equal weightage to get a fat-good quotient?

    If the former, Grace. If the latter - Bradman/Dwayne Leverock.
    Isnít it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? Ė Douglas Adams

    Warne batting above Streak is an abomination.

    Ealham and Bresnan should be in there somewhere. And Ridley Jacobs to keep wicket?

    David Shepherd and Graham Burgess to do the umpiring duties

    ..... and while I appreciate that Mark Taylor's nickname was "Tubs" surely his place has to go to Ollie Milburn?
