Sorry if there's a similar thread. In my mind, favorite cricketer doesn't necessarily have to be among the best in the world, he might be someone who we dearly love(d) watching or admire.
My favorite cricket is Mohammad Rafique mainly because I think some memories of my childhood connected with him. When I was growing up and getting into Cricket, he was the one who I loved watching most- either bowling or batting. I met with him several times, he's a great guy and absolute fun to talk to.
Who is your favorite cricketer of all time? Let me make it tougher, you have to name one!
