    Relate Cricketweb Members to Cricket Players

    Here's how it works - relate a cricketweb member's posting style to a cricket player.

    I'll start:

    Me (Mister Wright) - Mark Waugh. Can often show glimpses of brilliance, but is far too inconsistent. Is happy with elegant posts and less on grinding out a post. Prefers to read short posts, has no interest in long haul reading.

    dontcloseyoureyes - Glenn McGrath. Always niggling at you, but you have to respect his ability.

    Richard - Matthew Hayden. Very strong, aggressive poster, with a lot of posts. Never gives in and loves a fight. However, has dished out a lot of his posts against weaker posters.

    NZTailender - Michael Bevan. Has a wonderful ability in the shorter form of posting, often struggles when posts go beyond the one sentence mark. Despite not getting on with many posters has managed to keep his performances strong enough to continue selection.

    PrinceEWS - Shane Warne. Some would say the best poster on the forums, but is prone to off forum incidents far too often. Has strong views, and will continually ignore records and favour his friends. Although on the odd occasion will give credit where credit is due.

    pasag. - Ian Healy. A very hard worker and easy to get along with. Rarely lets anything past him and can chip in with allround comments when they are required. Never lets the team down.

    BoyBrumby - Don Bradman., Considered the best of the best. Some will debate his standing, but often they come off second best.

    Feel free to add your own.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Sudeep Popat - Don Bradman and Glenn McGrath. Stuff that legends are made of.

    He bats like McGrath and bowls like Bradman. His posting style is no different, highly legendary.

    That's brilliant. If I didn't hate the idea of being compared to Matthew Hayden so much that'd be my favourite post of all-time.

    Hmm, a few...

    As Neil Pickup noted, until recently he was like Shaun Pollock: ginger and still here - just.

    SJS is Garry Sobers: the best who so rarely gets recognised as the best, and a true all-round genius.

    Liam Camps is Steve Camacho, or maybe even Clyde Walcott: doing the job of player and administrator well. Depends which you think he was best at as to which he was.

    Richard Hingston: a combination of Reggie Schwarz and Aubrey Faulkner, a pioneering person in the early days of cricket, who bowls both seam and wristspin and bats well, who travelled from England to South Africa to seek his true home. And like Schwarz, who died of Spanish Flu days after WWI had ended, struck by misfortune after misfortune that he did not deserve.

    Zac Ri-*ahem* "Perm": Jesse Ryder, a young Kiwi with much promise in so many ways but who seemingly cannot help but keep doing something which destroys himself.

    Simon Fitzsimmons: James Sutherland. After a quiet but reasonable career in the standard format (playing; or posting in Cricket Chat) took on an altogether different role, and as CEO of the Australian board or WCC CEO, did sterling work in a challenging role with many rewards.

    Andy Cameron, Gerard Armstrong, Kenny Dobson: there's got to be an Australian with Chinese\Japanese connections out there somewhere....

    Richard: Muthiah Muralitharan, gets countless posts in comparison to wickets and stays in character.

    Anyone for me?
    Well the Irish did it on St Patrick's day

    Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.

    Mark Newton: Hasan Raza, who strayed as a boy into a man's world, perhaps using a false date-of-birth while doing so.

    Andmark - Hasan Raza. Way too young.

    EDIT: Geh, I used the same comparison as Richard. Someone lock me away before I start following his footsteps. It's for my own good.

    Jamee999 - Sachin Tendulkar - Started out young, carried on in the long game, chokes in key situations, but is ultimately adored by millions.
    Or something.

    Think Imran Nazir is more appropriate TBH.
