    They performed when it mattered which is usually a sign of a good cricketer I would have thought. Bracken before he lost it circa 2008 had a ODI bowling average of 21 after 90 odd games.

    I'd hesitate before calling him "rubbish" but Roger Binny was the bits-and-pieces archetype and, not only did he get a gong, but he took more wickets at a WC than anyone had before him.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    And Madan Lal. He did pretty well in that same WC too.

    Whatever their talent might have been, and however the rest of their careers may have gone - they came through in spades in that tournament and certainly earned their medals.

    Embarrassingly, both Madan Lal and Binny have skittled England to set up famous test wins for India.

    Having seen both Madan Lal and Roger Binny play, my initial thoughts were that it would be harsh to class either Munaf Patel or Nehra alongside them

    However, then I had a look at Nehra's record in all formats and it's clear he has to be a contender here

    Timely bump.

    Sreesanth and Chawla, though they have time to prove themselves not rubbish.

    Yeah Sree getting a medal is ridiculous. Chawla wasn't great as well. Nehra, for all his woefulness and how much I bag him, still did the job in the semi.

    Sree is the only crap player with a T20 WC and a 50 over WC medal.

    Chawla was there in 2007 too, if we're counting him.

    Yusuf Pathan also has both medals, and though he's a decent cricketer he did almost nothing in both campaigns.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.
