    Huh.

    Don't get me wrong, an awful lot to admire about AB & am a fan myself, but I'm surprised an Indian-affiliated Victorian would have an NSW-born QLDer as his hero instead of (say) Kapil Dev or (racks brain for decent Vics who were contemporaries of AB, fails) Merv Hughes.

    - 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

    Richie Beaud, he has been on TV since I can remember and has the same birthday as me. Bradman was also a big loss. The three heroes from my childhood, Greg Chappell, Rod Marsh and Dennis Lillee
    You know it makes sense.

    You're over-complicating this a tad.

    I was 5 years old watching cricket on channel 9. Border was the Australian cricket captain and best batsman.

    So were you an Australian cricket fan as a kid then?

    If so, what made you decide not to be?

    Not trying to be a dick - as you know, my loyalties haven't always exactly been straightforward either. But that's why I'm interested.

    i would have thought it was just because he saw Aus play more than India at that age. I know as a 6 or 7yo Essendon fan in Sydney, I saw a lot more of Tony Lockett than James Hird and......
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    I thought he liked AB the individual/player and not the Aus team in general and why not, you get inspired in your life by various people so why not an Aussie..Muhammed Ali an American has inspired many Africans and beyond and him dying would be a big loss for many..
