    Greatest ODI Cricketer Ever By Siddhartha Vaidyanathan!

    Don't want to copy paste the article as the article deserves hits but I would suggest everyone to read it. Article is by Siddhartha Vaidyanathan, and it is one of the finest pieces of writing I have seen in quite some time. The theme is about who the greatest ODI cricketer of all time is!

    viv rightly deserves it
    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

    ..... and after more than forty years there isn't a single English candidate - maybe we're doing something wrong?

    The last two paras were pretty good there by Vaidyanathan. I would, however, add that Viv's chutzpah was quite his own and a notch above that of Javed's.

    Much as I love Viv I disagree with you. Javed was one of a kind. A master at planning his innings, especially with only the tail for support. Matching his chutzpah is a big achievement / compliment to anyone. Exceeding his is not possible and claiming so is a mere hyperbole.

    Reveal your chutzpah scale, fred!

    Tbf, I think Javed was more cheeky than anything else. Liked to rile the opposition and work around them. Viv was more audacious.
