I loved Ridley Jacobs

Had one pretty good tour of Australia when the team was really struggling

When Inzamam goes to the cinema, I'm led to believe that he takes up 2 seats - one at each end of the aisle.

Greatest Inzaman incident. An Indian spectator brings a megaphone to the game and repeatedly calls him a "fat potato" - he takes it poorly

Warwick Armstrong was so large they actually keep one of his shirts on display the the MCG Museum... Apparently he was in the ballpark of 130kg give or take. He tried to lose weight during the boat trip to England for an Ashes tour but ended up putting on MORE weight.

How could you leave out poor Colin Milburn. He could have eaten Gatting and Boony for lunch. Great personality. If it hadn't been for his accident he would have been a star.

Yes, it was a loss to cricket when Milburn lost an eye in that car accident. He had a couple of years playing for Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield and impressed everyone with his power hitting and made some huge scores. I saw him make 129 in very quick time at Adelaide Oval one day, he was one powerful unit.

He played VFL for South Melbourne as well. Apparently when he began his Test career he was fit and athletic at 10 stone, and it ballooned out to 22 stone at the end of his career.

Ian Redpath would have to be in there. Most of him was adam's apple.
I notice they've finally updated his CricInfo profile picture.

His old one looked like Freddie Mercury in his final days. Felt a bit macabre to be honest.
