In honour of that Aussie fella who’s calling it a day, here are the Ten Cricketers who Could Have You in a Fight:

  • Ian Botham. Obviously.
  • Andrew Symonds. He hunts wild animals with his bare hands. Do you? Thought not.
  • Inzamam-ul-Haq. A big man, but out of shape? Well, when a spectator called him a ‘potato’, Inzy went at him with a menace and vigour not normally associated with ‘larger’ gents. So maybe those fat jokes are best kept to yourself.
  • Ian Chappell. As Mike Brearley put it ,”..Ian Chappell as a captain turns a cricket match into gang warfare”. And the ‘Ugly Australians’ were quite a gang.
  • Shivnarine Chanderpaul. Shot a policeman in Guyana. Admittedly, Shiv had mistaken him for a mugger, but how many cricketers have revolvers?
  • Shoaib Akhtar. Especially if he was armed with a cricket bat (or indeed a cricket ball), or if you were one of his team-mates.
  • Adam Gilchrist. Looks like he’s just stepped out of a bar-room brawl, and often talks like it too. Although some in England have a sneaking suspicion he may be all mouth and no trousers, not many have taken the risk of finding out.
  • C B Fry. He played in an FA Cup final, held the long-jump world record, batted for England and was offered the throne of Albania. Chances are, he was probably quite handy in a fight as well.
  • Shahid Afridi. He, is , quite frankly, properly mental. Who knows what he’d be capable of in a fight?
  • Javed Miandad. Famously took on Dennis Lillee, with bat wielded “like a deranged javelin thrower”.
