If your friends and family organised a surprise birthday party for you and arranged for a cricketer to attend - not to make a speech but just to hang out, chat to the rels, have a few pics taken and eat some cake - who would you want it to be?
Like most cricket player related questions, my choice would be Geoffrey. Id be thrilled as I'm sure my mates would be in addition to my Dad and uncles. Even the older women in the family would be excited as he is such an important Yorkshire icon.
How many Indians on here wouldnt say Sachin?
