Tim May better than Allan Donald and Kapil Dev? Mmmm.
Still, it's an interesting read. Atherton should be top 5 though.
"Of course not"
if it's ever then there is no way athers is top 5.
I believe and either way Atherton should be top 5.
why are they only showing 10? thats SO lame. is it cos they're trying to drum up interest in a list?
on there too.
the navigation on their site is so shit!
but top 20 definately
I'm being stupid. Atherton is my favourite sportsman ever so I'd put him at number 1, but he should be higher than almost any other English cricketer Warne has played against.
real ones though.
hey hey you...
with your jokes
that Athers averaged less than 40. Still an absolute legend though. That 185* in Johannesburg was the best innings I've seen by an English batsman.
at Lords either. That board has gone down in my estimation since that.
on 99 at Lords? When he slipped on the grass.
the big hussy
Darren Lehmann ahead of Steve Waugh?! That's just stupid.
Also, it no longer appears to be a top-50.
Harmison above Waqar Younis...
about Shaun Pollock.
particularly against England.
Harmison and Lee's high placing shows that Warne is picking players from certain points in the past rather then looking at their career as a whole.
because of that 9-36 or whatever then.
Or Otis Gibson. He's my number one right now.
Sir Richard Hadlee for that 9-52 at the Gabba.
It's rather bizarre seeing this here. Lol.
And yeah, it is just bizarre... just reminds me of Melbourne, that is all, really..
Ho humm.. I'm going now...
is the most important person in cricket at the moment.
He was a very good spinner but better than Allan Donald? I think Australia's fierce rivalry with SA has affected his decision making there.
Some odd choices for sure. Atherton should no way be top 5. Top 30 at best.
I am stupidly biased towards Atherton though.
Use whatever criteria you like. I'm going for how much I loved them rather than actual ability

I knew there was a form of words that wasn't woeful
so so much.
Oh, the rage.
few Aussies I like. Along with Langer, Warne and Stuart Clark.
but Hayden's reaction to the Aussie win in Adelaide marks him out as a grade A cunt.
Him and Langer wrapped themselves in the flag and galloped around the outfield.
A reporter tried to interview him and he bellowed 'Australia! You bloody beauty' into the camera like a proper fucking imbecilic inbred hick cunt.
Which he is.
God I hate him. Try and find it on youtube and all will be revealed.

purely down to either novelty-based love or hero worship.
Jimmy A in the past - but this summer he's begun to win me around now he's stopped chucking down a couple of half trackers every over.
my six a side team took the field with red stripes in our hair this bank holiday weekend in his honour. I hope he becomes a great bowler, cause I really like him. Is that sad of me?
if you changed your name to Jimmy Anderson and took a lifesize cardboard cut out of the real Jimmy Anderson to bed with you every night.
would I get one of these cut outs?
I want one of those.
