Default Who are your favourite cricket players? i.e alltime faves (and pleez include a bangladeshi player)

Ok folks I am really waiting in vain for that darn test match to start. My feeling is others are edgy too. So I thought we could take a brief respite from the gruelling analysis of these practice matches and talk about something near our hearts. Kindly list briefly your favourite players and start with a Bangladeshi player at the top of your list. Limit the players to 3 (4 is the limit ok). This is purely a biased and subjective question. Need not reflect who your 2nd fave team is either. No need to drag in stats too!

My faves are purely based on one word, "style":
-Alok Kapali
-Rahul Dravid
-M Azharuddin

Disclaimer-India definetely is not my 2nd best team.

Default I CAN\'T LIMIT MY FAVORITE PLAYERS TO ONLY 4

So bear with me, PLEASE!

(note: not in the order of who is my most favorite)

1) Hannan Sarkar - for his handling of bouncers
2) Mehrab Hossain - for his ODI century
3) Mushfiqur Rahman - for his batting at age group level
4) Fahim Muntasir - for his batting at age group level
5) Talha Jubair - for his perfect bowling action
6) Shahriar Hossain - for his top score against Kenya, our best player against Kenya and against any other ICC associate team
7) Mohammad Ashraful - after he took the maiden ODI wicket of Andy Flower
8) Mohammad Rafique - for his batting
9) Khaled Mahmud
10) Minhazul Abedin
11) Shafiuddin Ahmed - yes, the khuni Babu - for his economy rate in ODIs
12) Morshed Ali Khan - for his economy rate in ODIs
13) Moahammad Sharif - for his economy rate in bowling and straight/horizontal bat in batting
14) Aminul Islam - I like the way he consults with himself after each ball that he plays - he looks at his bat - very carefully after and before playing a ball

The list of my on-the-way-to-favorite players:

1) Arafat Sunny
2) Anwar Hossain Munir

I APOLOGISE FOR THE LONG LIST OF PLAYERS.

Favourite all time batsman - M Waugh (style), Atherton (grit)

Favourite all time bowler - Warne (genius)

Favourite Bangladeshi player - Its got to be Kapali for style. (by that measure, Bashar is my least favourite BD player for complete lack of style)

Rokon the reckless
Richards the ruthless
Waqar the yorker (or 'er)


I have not seen Kapali yet, but what i read, he might have the talent of Rokon and maturity of Rajin. That will be enough for me.

Oracle bhai why only three ? I feel doing injustice to my other favs.

1. MICHAEL BEVAN - best one-day player i have seen. The four in SCG off the last ball against Harper of West Indies to win the match was one of the most exciting things i have ever seen in cricket.
2. Mark Waugh - laziest 4's u will ever see
3. Ricky Ponting - great things from his first test innings of 96 against pakistan when he was given lbw. World Cup final knock showed off his true abilities.
4. Glenn McGrath - the guy i look upto in fast bowling
5. Shane Warne - always killed the Poms

and of course, Kapali is my fave BD player. I have only seen him during the world cup but it was still evident that he was the most stylish BD player on the team. He had a bad campaign, but he would look solid making even 10 runs. He has real nice footwork and just looks very composed.

hmm...looks like i only listed aussie players as my faves. Well, from other international countries, my fave players are :
1. Imran Khan
2. Shiv Chanderpaul
3. Curtly Ambrose

I remember reading an interview of Kapali's in which he said he really liked Rokon's batting!

Rokon's cover drive is by far the most stylish shot by a Bangladeshi batsman!
