Ozz That!!

They might be sledgers of the highest order and more aggressive than we like, but you've got to give it to the Australians. They play (cricket) with such commitment. It's like they pour their hearts out on the field...give the game all they've got. And it's evident in every ball they put bat to & every ball they bowl. They might not be my favorite cricketing side in the world (far from it, actually) but you've got to admit they're right up there as far as the quality of their game is concerned. Especially players like Gilly, Hayden, Brett Lee & Glen McGrath...I've only seen them behave as gentlemen on the field.

What's your take on Australian cricketers?

Preferred the West Indian team of the 80s. Probably because of the way Gavaskars romaticised them in his autobiographies

@The Knife - I got into cricket when I was about 15-16, so the only thing I remember about the West Indies team - apart from Brial Lara & Shivnarain Chanderpaul that is - is the first Kingfisher ad featuring the entire team! It was awesome!

@Moonshine - Gilchrist is such a gentleman apart from being a great batsman. I used to also like Steve Waugh. Never liked Ponting. But isn't Brett Lee so cute?
