    Strangely enough, Brian Lara

    I was a massive fan of his when I was young, and still am, but the reason I hated him on occasion is because whenever I got tickets to go watch him bat live or Sat down at home to watch a full day of his batting, he usually did FA. The **** would generally get a pretty 20-30 and get out. Only time I remember seeing an awesome innings of him live on tv was his double in South Africa when he smashed 28 in an RP over. Still find it annoying I rarely got to see some of his other masterpieces live

    Umar Khatmal......his flashes of brilliance are something that I really like and makes me feel like he might be the real deal and somebody who can be nurtured into a great batsman. But then his Khatmal blood and brain farts make me hate him so much.
    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

    Dhoni, for the exact reasons that Jono put out..
    Plus I didn't like him recalling Bell in that run-out as well..

    It doesn't exactly fit the criteria of this thread, but Jesse Ryder. Love his batting, hate every other aspect of the bloke. Such a waste of talent.

    Nice to have my unwavering loyalty acknowledged.

    Mitchell Johnson one for me. Not in a conventional sense really. I've always tried to hate him. But you hear him talk, off the field, and okay aside from his obviously pathetic 'barmy army are picking on me' whinge, he comes across as a really good, genuine guy, and in turn that gives me a fair chunk of respect for that animal he becomes on the field. And then he acts like that animal and I think, jeez he really is a prized cock...you get the picture...

    Yeah good call on MJ GIMH.......it is hard to dislike him when you hear him talk, then you see him bullying our tail end and you just think WAC.......but you think that with the utmost respect.

    Another one for me is Ricky Ponting. For most of his career he epitomised what we English love to hate in the Aussies and I was sucked into that lock stock and barrell.......but towards the end I found myself really liking the guy. I think he did "grow up" a lot and certainly developed some real humility when things started to go not so well for him and his side. He was my fav pundit in the Big Bash and I never thought I'd ever think that of him.

    Kudos Ricky.

    Yes I was supposed to mention Jadeja in my opening post. Really fits the criteria.

    I'm a Broad fanboi as well. Except maybe for a brief period in 2011 before the India series. Don't think I could ever dislike him after that.
