    Battle of the Elegance

    This battle is to see who CW thinks was the best player to watch, not merely the best player.

    Nominate away.
    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy 1988-2014. 63* for eternity.

    Mark Waugh. Just perfect.

    If I could be any cricketer I've seen, I'd be him.

    Viv is a different story. Brutal, but not as beautiful.

    Definitely the two I've most enjoyed watching.

    An older Lillee perhaps.

    But the run-up of a young Dennis Lillee looked like he was "elbowing his way through a crowd". Not very elegant.
