    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

    To elaborate on Headley's ranking. The top 6 for me are non negotiable, with Hutton some where between the two groups but closer to the first. Chappell, Headley and Pollock are all interchangeable with Ponting just behind. Chappell for his consistency and the quality of bowlers he faced, Pollock for his ability to destroy attacks and Headley for shouldering the burden of those early teams and his volume of scoring.

    It seems to me that you're justifying the lack of need for a spinner on the basis that the WI had a fantastically phenomenal crop of fast bowlers. But you're rating it as the "greatest attack of all-time" based on the fact that you don't consider a spinner important to the balance of an attack. Those who're big fans of Warne, Murali, spinners in general, would disagree that it was the greatest ever because there was no spinner. You can't use it as your justification and argument.
    Not even the same country. West Indies is a collection of separate countries.

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!

    Imagine if India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh was allowed to form one team as the subcontinent team like the Windies. Or NewZealand and Australia.

    Imagine the size of the populations of India, Pakistan and India compared to Barbados, Antigua, Trinidad and Jamaica.

    That doesn't matter. They are separate nations and not one country!
