    Furball's Greatest XI

    It's a subject I've been thinking about over the last few weeks. Big thanks to Days of Grace for his excellent top 100 batsman series, which along with a couple of Sky's excellent features has reminded me of some of the great players I've been fortunate enough to enjoy playing this great game.

    I'm going to tease people and name them one at a time. A word of warning, this list will be highly biased, and if you're going to come in here and argue stats, then kindly do me a favour and **** off.

    Who knows, maybe it'll spark a few others to think about their greatest XIs. The first name will be revealed tomorrow, feel free to speculate until then...

    Your opinion isn't regarded highly enough for you to do it one by one, ****.

    Please don't leave it, I have a driving lesson Friday and it'll be distracting while I'm constantly refreshing the page in anticipation
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Nah seriously, I'm looking forward to it. Just based on players you've seen, yeah?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    From the sounds of it he's just talking about his favourites, which is great

    I expect at least five players to be labeled "**** ****s" by Furball when justifying their exclusion.

    Hahaha Ishant Sharma is actually massively out of place on that list, but not for the reasons most would think.

    Samaraweera is completely inoffensive, Sreesanth is hilariously bad, Zaheer should be nowhere near that list and I can think of a much worse opening pair. Tendulkar's also kind of out of place as well.

    But anyway, this isn't my most hated list, ****s.
