    woah....that is a revelation....why so if I may ask?
    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

    Brummie-born Queenslander, int he? What's to like?

    To watch it's unquestionably Lara for me; lithe, quicksilver little genius that he was.

    However as an all-round package Rahul Dravid is impossible not to love just a little bit. Resolute and unbending an opponent as he was, he also had a deft lightness of touch and, crucially, understood the ethos of the sport like no-one else. Just a champion bloke.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    In all seriousness though, I can't really narrow it down that far. I'll try and get it down to an XI though.

    Jackson
    Compton
    Macartney
    Dravid +
    McCabe
    Worrell *
    Miller
    Shakib
    Procter

    Shane Bond. Amazing bowler but also comes across as the nicest, most humble cricketer.

    I'm also a big fan of Rahul Dravid and Jacques Kallis.

    In an unrelated note, I remember the Indian Test/ODI XI from the early days of my cricket viewership:

    Kris Srikkanth
    Ravi Shastri
    Sanjay Manjrekar
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Mohammad Azharuddin*
    Kapil Dev
    Kiran More+
    Manoj Prabhakar
    Anil Kumble
    Javagal Srinath
    Narendra Hirwani/Maninder Singh/Venkatapathy Raju

    "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)

    Those days, the Aussie ODI XI looked something like:

    Mark Taylor
    David Boon
    Dean Jones
    Allan Border*
    Steve Waugh
    Mark Waugh
    Ian Healy+
    Merv Hughes
    Craig McDermott
    Paul Reiffel
    Mark Whitney

    Perhaps, they didn't play 4 specialist pace bowlers and played a spinner instead. But I'm failing to recollect who that spinner used to be....Tom Moody? Tim May?

    Moody bowled medium pace.
