My favourite player of all time is Allan Donald. Of current players, I love watching Kevin Pietersen, Dale Steyn and Virender Sehwag.

My least favourite are all Australians (except Michael Bevan), and players in my fantasy cricket team that are playing badly!

Agreed, I forgot those screw-ups!

The greats from the past - Freddie Truman, Ian Botham, IVA and the great Sunil Gavaskar! There are many more such as Basil D'oliveira, Fred Titmus, Gary Sobers. Endless.


As an aside, I remember well the commentary, "The batsman's Holding, the bowler's Willy"!

First Ashes Test (12th man commentary) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfURsSiirWU#lq-lq2-hq)

My absolute favourite......the 12th Man series.

Brilliant commentary!  ;D

Not much can be added to the all time greats named above.

Unfortunately I can't find the commentary they released in 1989/90.......it was the funniest ever!

Well, that's understandable. Must admit I was shocked to see this :

but then, rugby is taking off in Ukraine and, with luck and determination from a number of dedicated individuals, Ukraine can soon become a force to be reckoned with!

 OK, it's Don Kenyon (who?) the most brilliant, dominant opening batsman never to make an England Test career.
 Closely followed by Tom Graveney, the most elegantly destructive batsmen ever.  Strangely, they both played cricket for Worcestershire.
