    There are plenty of reasons.

    True. CBF'd might be the real reason.

    Hutton was a great. If you ignore the two tests he played against Pakistan that were pretty poor (but to be reasonable we should state that his average for them was 6) he has averaged 40 plus against every nation he played against and IN every nation he played in (apart from NZ- where he averaged 30).

    Playing against:
    Aus- 56
    India- 58
    NZ- 45
    SA- 52
    WI- 79

    Playing in:
    Aus: 50
    Eng: 57
    NZ: 30
    SA: 56
    WI: 77

    That's a freaking phenomenal record. I rate players who succeeded against all opponents and in all conditions very highly.

    Made those runs against some pretty impressive bowlers too.

    Know what you mean. Massive fan of Hutton as well. Hobbs might be the greatest (legend) but Hutton in my opinion is the best opener ever.

    Yes, 9 out of 10 people voting one way necessarily means 1 voting the other way. That's how maths works, Pratters.

    'You will look very silly said Mr Salteena with a dry laugh.
    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    I'm open to receiving sexual favours FTR.

    Now's the time to find out just how much honestbharani really loves Lara.

    It's not easy to combine a paradox with irony, but I think that you've just achieved it.
