The truly great cricket is a model of consistency. A team man who can shoulder the responsibility of his team's fortunes and failings, be the rock of a batting lineup or your go-to man with the ball. Someone who'll give you exactly what you know you'll get from him.
Bollocks to that. This is a thread about the sort of players who could easily win you the next match, produce complete incompetence in the next match, or be in a different country to the next match without seeming to break character. An XI more than capable of beating or losing to Test cricket's finest by an innings and 300 runs.
We salute them.
