    Well the thread has made me question my belief that a specialist can never be a better cricketer than an allrounder.

    Bradman is worth two all time great batsmen, was excellent in the field, was a useful part timer and was a captain. Sobers, Kallis, Miller, Imran etc are all time greats in one discipline, good at another and in most cases on that list excellent in the field as well.

    I'm torn.

    Did Kohli stand on a box, when that poor woman was behind him, or is she a dwarf?

    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

    Boon, a bigger outlier than Bradman. 52 beers 1 flight.
    I think there'll sooner be another Bradman than another Warne. - Gidgeon Haigh

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler ever produced in this entire world - Muttiah Muralidaran

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler of all time - Glenn McGrath


    In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham

    Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.
    And is the greatest bowler I have ever laid eyes on. - Brian Lara

    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    Well I've only posted it like 2 or 3 times so I can only imagine the other 2 occasions involved you reading GQ?

    That's hardly my fault.
