    Tbf whenever it gets discussed on here we always end up saying there isn't a definitive first or second best

    He's solved the problem by not having a best or second best at all. I like it.

    Might have been from this game...



    The game featured all the major Test cricket playing nations but no official team and player licensing in place. This meant that player names within the game, particularly for the Australian team, were parodies on the actual names of cricket players at the time. Following is a list of player names from the game and their respective actual names from Test-playing teams.

    A. Boulder - Allan Border
    M. Sailor - Mark Taylor
    D. Boost - David Boon
    G. Swamp - Geoff Marsh
    J. Dean - Dean Jones
    S. Mars - Steve Waugh
    I. Hilly - Ian Healy
    R. Bruce - Bruce Reid
    M. Ewes - Merv Hughes
    C. McDirt - Craig McDermott
    H. Mervyn - Merv Hughes
    P. Tail - Peter Taylor
    T. Oldman - Terry Alderman

    Lol at G. Swamp

    Also Merv Hughes appears under two different pseudonyms?

    Apart from being curiously placed in Site Discussion and the odd numbering system, the thread also suffers from not having any of the all time top 5 fast bowlers in it. I know it states "personal choice" but even Brett Lee's and Sohaib Aktar's own grandmothers wouldn't put them in the top 5.

    Sailor for Taylor. I am sure every Tailor would love to swap jobs like that.

    No videos are found. Disappointed bro. Also, how is Brett Lee behind McGrath? Doesn't Brett Lee bowl faster?

    You missed the best part of the rankings
    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
