The Perfect Cricketer


International Captain
This is a game that involves naming aspects of players that they pull off unusually well in a quest to build the 'perfect' cricketer. For instance,

The perfect cricketer would have........the conversion rate of Stephen Fleming
An outswinger like Shane Watson
The concentration of Shahid Afridi

Obviously these aren't true, but you get the idea.

Only one aspect per post, please!

I'll start proceedings:
The perfect cricketer would have.......The hook shot of Viv Richards


International Captain
There was only one cricketer who can be called perfect relative to the other cricketers in history - Garfield Sobers.

Shoaib's Slowie...

Warne's bouncebackability. Caught being a *** pest? Do it again! What are the chances of being caught twice? Need to get back on that horse...
