    Franklin Rose is one of my favourites. I don't know why but the name sounds so cheerful and vibrant to me, well most West Indian names do tbh.

    No one ever talks about 'the weak, silent type'. When's their moment?

    Vaas isn't that spectacular given half of his countrymen have just as many first names. I always smile every time I see UWMBCA Welegedara on a scoreboard.

    Fortunately, tonight is a reminder that older people and older players have the opportunity to applaud all the good things done by the modern-day players – their ability to play outstanding attacking cricket, their flair and inspiration and innovation; and it’s a reminder also, in a quiet way, to the modern-day players that good things have happened before, that in every era there have always been cricketers who have served the game well and have loved it, and wanted to see it flourish

    01. Leslie GAY +
    02. Martin LOVE
    03. Salman BUTT
    04. Doug RING
    05. Graeme HOLE
    06. Daniel BOTTOM
    07. Imran FARHAT
    08. Ryan SIDEBOTTOM
    09. Len MOON
    10. Jack CRAPP *
    11. Trevor STOOLE

    Needless the say, the keeper is Gay, and the captain is Crapp. However, the team should be able to squeeze out the odd win.

    Always found the name Ken Rutherford quite catchy for some reason
    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
