    Among non-Indian cricketers - Curtly Ambrose, Wasim Akram, Courtney Walsh, Adam Gilchrist, Brian Lara, Allan Donald, Waqar Younis, Steve Waugh and to an extent Shane Warne...

    Just realised - all of them are from 90s mostly...
    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
    - Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)

    Yup, all 90s for me too. I am pretty sure it is because the packaging on TV improved so much, and we could connect with the on-field drama in a much more real, dramatic and fun way. Ambrose, Saqlain and Sachin are my favorites.

    Saqlain because he was the only bowler I hated any of the Indian batsmen to get out to. It used to make me cross, and I especially detested Moin Khan yelling "Saqi" or a similarity all the time. Ambrose because of the awesome reactions, smiles and glint-in-his-eye when he got wickets. Sachin because of, well.

    lol.....tbf moin khan calling "shabash saqi" all the time was so damn annoying. Although it retrospect it feels like the golden days

    Saqlain at his prime was such a gun bowler with such craftiness
    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

    My first favourite cricketer was Michael Slater.

    Mathew Sinclair for favourite ever though, comfortably. I supported him as a player with greater passion than I've supported any team in any sport, I think.

    EDIT: Heh, just noticed the M.S. thing. Cool. My second most loathed cricketer ever is MS Dhoni though.
