Come on, you've GOT TO make room for Shahid "BOOM BOOM" Afridi. Just for his name. How about a list of expected bashes? You could have Shiv Chanderpaul at the top for his 70-odd ball ton vs. the Aus?

Dave the Bard Bird

Nice list though. Nathan Astle would also make the occasion blaster list, obviously for his 152 double ton against a terrified Matthew Hoggard.

The Reverse Sweep

Its true that Boom Boom has agreat name and can certainly be devastating on his day. But he is probably a little too inconsistent for this list. Maybe his nickname should be Boom Boom Damp Squib for all the times he fails too!!

The Reverse Sweep

Astle was certainly considered, but I just couldnt leave Botham and Yuvraj out!!


Delighted if youncould make a list of the top 10 Boycottesque batsman. Criteria would include low scoring rate, lack of humor and and a dash of selfishness.


In my opinion it already was discussed
