My favourite non-Australian cricketer of all time. Going to miss seeing him go around.

Yeah he and Amla are class acts

Funny you don't have a Pom on that list :lol:

Any bloke who backs his religion and pays the fines because of it are OK in my book

Probably along with Tendulkar and Smith the best batsmen of their generation

And I don't want to hear one thing about Kallis CB :D

Haha, shame to see ABDV call it quits but the heart wants what it wants and he's going out on top. Ponting had the window to do that and opted to hang around and finished up with a whimper.

I would like to mention Dravid in the same breath as Tendulkar but he wasn't as good in limited overs. I think he is on par with Tendulkar as a Test bat, although their styles were diametrically opposed (I think to this day that Dravid is the definition of a what Test #3
should be.)
Gentlemen, this is democracy manifest!

Yeah I'd still argue if I wanted someone to bat for my life I choose Steve Waugh over any of the above

And I'd have to add that if I had to die watching someone bat it would be DR Martyn.

AB was the best bat in the world at the top of his game. No other batsman came close.

Look we need to clear something up

Cricket season is from November to March unless Australia is winning

So Hobbo talking about England winning with a record score in June means nothing OK

The players are too busy backing against themselves , taking the 50-1 odds on England scoring it's highest ever score and betting on rigged NRL penalty counts to care about playing cricket

Focus man focus , the World Cups on England will choke in that shortly , and your beast is languishing in ISP and about to be switched for some red headed goal kicker from the Blue Mountains who probably has more fire in his belly than your man crush

I hope Warner and co. are pleased with the damage they've done. It's pretty ordinary listening to Saffas, Indians and the English lecture us about cheating when they've all been done for it in the past.

Oh mate you'll get no argument here. It was beyond stupid. But to hear nations that have rubbed lollies, used dirt in their pockets and even bitten at the ball to laugh at us just shows how dumb the whole situation was. Always thought since they were well paid they'd never need to stoop to this crap, turns out I was wrong. Should have known it was always a possibility while Mr. Teeny aka Dave Warner was in the team.
