    2. James Taylor, Harry Gurney, Stuart Broad, Alex Hales

    3. Aubrey Faulkner, Gubby Allen, Ian Botham, Conrad Hunte

    I suspect there may be more than one correct answer to these but my best efforts without googling them are

    1. Something to do with the IPL so Arjuna
    2. Hales because he's always played for Notts unlike the other three who started next door in Leicestershire
    3. Faulkner because he's not a knight

    Alex Hales has only played for Notts, the other East Midlands people for Notts & Leics?

    2 - Hales was nicked from Buckinghamshire as opposed to Leicestershire
    3 - Aubrey Faulkner wasn't knighted

    1 - I can only think up some weak links about Lehmann's fondness for multiculturalism

    1. Dilhara Fernando cause he's not fat
    2. James Taylor because he's a short ****
    3. Ian Botham because I don't remember Aubrey Faulkner, Gubby Allen or Conrad Hunte putting pictures of their dick on twitter

    1) Fernando doesn't have a test 100.
    2) Broad is the only one with a Test five-fer
    3) Hunte isn't an allrounder (hasn't achieved some all-round feat the other three would have)

    Dhoni is the only right handed batsman for 1?
    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

    1. Lehmann is the one that isn't Asian? Or is that too simple?
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Ranatunga, Lehmann and Dhoni all hit the winning runs in a World Cup Final.

    Mitch Marsh: the others have opened for Australia
    Hughes: The others are right handed
    Maxwell: the only one to open both bowling and batting for Australia
    Finch: The only true allrounder in this group.

    Nah, it's Hughes. All the others can get a game for Australia. They'll all probably play tests before Hughes plays again too.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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
