    Which player gave you/gives you the most pleasure to see getting themselves out?

    For me it was Matthew Hayden, watching that strategically shaved gorilla walking off was always a nice sight, he represented to me the brutish bullying face of the brilliant Australian team circa 1995-2006. If your bowling attack wasn't up to scratch on a decent pitch, he was the man to punish you.

    I take great pleasure whenever anyone gets out against India, but if we're talking from a neutral point of view, or one that is regardless of context, I can't really think of anyone.

    It's whichever random left handler that manages a rich vein of form against us. It's always a left hander.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Watson, although it's amusement rather than pleasure.

    Graeme Smith. Can't stand him. Comes across as a ****, is one of the ugliest batsmen in the world to watch, and has an irritatingly good record against England. Love seeing him get out cheaply against us.
