    Stephen Fleming is advertising pretty much anything at the moment.

    Recently he was in India filming some television & billboard advertisements & recently in Australia he did a Rexona ad with Ricky Ponting...I even see he's been advertising home loans in the paper.

    For cricketing etiquette, probably Chaminda.

    Ive always like Wasim Akram a lot, he's one of my all time idols.
    I admire Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar for their hard work, determiantion and ethic.

    Other liked players:

    Adam Gilchrist - Great bloke, great batsman, great keeper, great everything

    Javagal Srinath - The nice guy of Indian Cricket

    Shane Warne - Wonderful guy, (if you meet him in person)

    Ajit Agarkar - Im Vice President of his society! Nah seriously, he's a very talented cricketer and a very modest guy too.

    Shoaib Akhtar - Fast, brash, cocky, arrogant, I love it!

    Sanath Jaysuriya - Brilliant to watch, all the time

    Darren Gough - Great bloke, great bowler

Dont just take one player if you are gonna get good voting . Because just because of one big vote bank the poll thing screws up . So let me make it Polls wise ....
    1. Sachin Tendulkar (India) marks 100/100
    2. Sourav Ganguly (India) marks 100/100
    3. Rahul Dravid (India) marks 100/100
    4. Laxman (India)marks 100/100
    5 Balaji (india) marks 100/100
    6. Zaheer khan marks 100/100
    7. Nehra (India) marks 100/100
    8. Patel (India) marks 100/100
    9. Kumble (India) marks 100/100
    10. Pathan (India) marks 100/100
    11. AA lololololol had to say now If I am wrong put a poll on the results are gonna be the same . The vote bank (you know)
    Now just get down to business and serious talk
    Well Steve Waugh is the most respected personality of his times, And you know what I guess Stephen Fleming is the best personality in the world cricket today . And he is a person to be liked by every one . Even Aussies will agree that .. Right
    Do you ever make any ****ing sense at all ??

    I would put down my list from the people i have enjoyed watching the most.

    Wasim Akram - The greatest bowler in my view, great to watch, always doing something with the ball and always playing around with the batsman.

    Brian Lara - In my view one of the best left arm batsman ever produced, just brilliant and so aggressive, who has not been afraid of any bowler.

    Sachin Tendulkar - One of The greatest stroke maker i have seen, when in form there is not a better timer of the ball. Its like he touches the ball and its gone.

    Shoaib Akhtar - Fast and Furious, he has the ability to turn the game any minute, he is a bowler who can scare the hell out of almost any batsman when in form.

    Hmmm... he comes off as arrogant to me. Never met him though, so won't judge him.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I will with Waqar Younis, i think he the best behaved pakistani cricketer ever. If you forget the Symonds incident, i never saw him misbahiving with any batsman or any opponent, No Cursing which is very Non Pakistani Fast bowler like.lol....Even after he gets hit for a boundery, he would just walk up to the batsman, pull his shirt back from his chest, smile and say some thing to batsman but never a bad word.

    Hanse Cronje - As honest as the day is long...and he'll prove his popularity when he makes his return to international cricket.

    Mark Ramprakash - A man who was always prepared to accept his limitations as a test cricketer without blaming others.

    Darren Lehmann - Epitomy of a true sportsman, especially when playing non-white cricketers.

    Brian MacMillan - See Darren Lehmenn.

    Alan Donald - Always put playing for his country before a lucrative english county contract.

    Jonty Rhodes - see Alan Donald.

    Nantie Hayward - The only guy who was prepared to admit he put a lucrative english county contract before playing for his country.

    Younis Ahmed - Did anyone a good turn...if the odds were right.

    Phil Tufell - Despite the scurilous accusations of wife bashing he has emerged as one of the UK's loveable rascals after winning Big Brother 2.

    Ian Botham - A one woman man if ever there was one. Also fully respectful of other cultures and societies.

    Tony Grieg - Popular only for his loyalty to 12 diferent countries. at any given time.

    Sir Tim Rice - Writer of some of the most atrocious lyrics known to man.
    'Tis better to regret something you have done than something you haven't.
