We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

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
Here are my top ten based on no criteria at all!
- G. Chappell
24. Shivnarine Chanderpaul (West Indies) (1994-present day)
Career Length (Days): 6943
Percentage of team's matches played: 78%
Career Average: 51.81
Adjusted career average: 49.84
Adjusted away average: 45.38
Adjusted top-opposition average: 49.80

Second tier centuries: 3
Third tier centuries: 12
Significant innings: 39
Significant innings per match: 0.26
Great innings: 3

1st Test: Australia v West Indies at Brisbane, Nov 23-25, 2000 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo 14.05
1st Test: West Indies v Australia at Georgetown, Apr 10-13, 2003 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo 15.87
Innings worth average: 3.61
25 Test peak adjusted average: 68.98 (2007-2010)
50 Test peak adjusted average: 64.18 (2006-present day)
Quality Points: 566
Career Points: 100
Peak Points: 138
TOTAL POINTS: 805
A modern-day George Headley, Chanderpaul has the classic stats of a great batsman in a struggling team, i.e. a high innings worth average, but a low percentage of significant innings per match. At age 38, he is still in his peak period, and it would be nice to see him contributing to some West Indian wins in the next year or so as the team itself seems to be much stronger and more unified than in recent years.
